Convert a text field to use a textarea
Tue, Jul 6th 2004 10:01a   TLCC Tips
This tip will show you how to modify a standard text field to display as a textarea tag for web users. A textarea is an alternative to a plain text box.

Call Formula Language From a Different Frame
Mon, Jun 21st 2004 10:01a   TLCC Tips
One issue with Domino actions is that the user can scroll down and the actions will disappear from the user's view until they scroll back up to the top of the document. One way to prevent that is to create a frameset. The top frame will contain a set of buttons that performs actions on the document in the bottom frameset. This technique works great when using buttons that have JavaScript. However, any buttons with formula language will not work since the button will act on the page containing t [read] Keywords: domino formula language javascript

Importing Data into Notes and Domino
Mon, Apr 26th 2004 10:01a   TLCC Tips
The Notes client has the capability to import data directly from text and 1-2-3 worksheet files. A new document in the Notes/Domino database is created for each record in the text or 1-2-3 file. Frequently the data in the text or 1-2-3 file does not map exactly into the fields on the Notes form. To aid in importing data, the Notes client can use a format file (also known as a .col file) to define how the data gets mapped while being imported. The format file can also run formulas on the data as [read] Keywords: domino notes notes client database
