Creating a field with the name of the CGI variable

When a field is named after a CGI variable, Domino® copies the field value from the CGI environment and places it in the field. This feature is useful in computed-for-display fields and for determining "hide when" conditions.

  1. Create a field and give it the name of a CGI variable.

    For example, to obtain the IP address of the user submitting the form, add a field named Remote_Addr to the form.

  2. Select the hide-when field properties "Previewed for Editing" and "Opened for editing" so users cannot enter information in it.
