Your Development & Design Resource
Putting a complaint to good use...

I've been going on and on lately about taking your frustrations and doing
something with them far-beyond complaining on Twitter. Yesterday, however,
after spending a good length of time trying to call a Windows Batch file via
Shell() Function, I was a little more than
frustrated when I tweeted the following:
Why do the code samples in the Designer Help suck? FYI: Shell("command.com /c " + batchfile, 1). Who runs CALC.EXE via Lotuscript?!
Dale Cole and Andre Guirard, thankfully, reminded me via comments on the Facebook version of this status update that there are better uses of my energies and my knowledge. Specifically, they reminded me about the Help Feedback link (and subsequent processing engine) that IBM has written into the footer of every Domino Designer Help document.
This link takes you to the IBM Help Feedback Online Form, which gives you the opportunity to submit feedback which is reviewed by the the specific product/platform documentation team.
So if you find yourself frustrated with the Code Sample Examples in IBM Lotus Notes Domino Designer Help, be a better community member than a frustrated me and submit your suggestions!
