YellowCast Episode 2: Vicodin and MonkeyButter

06/02/2008 12:11:04 PM by Chris Toohey

In this episode, we discuss the benefits of "separating UI from data" architectures in Lotus Notes client applications, as well as our frustrations with Domino ("our little brother"), as well as some new BETA release software that hit the community recently...

As for the Vicondin reference... I'm about to head off to the doctors (again) as the Vicodin that I was on while recording Episode 2 ain't quite helping my back. MonkeyButter? You'll just have to listen...

SmartIcon: NotesItem Mailer

01/18/2007 08:51:41 AM by Chris Toohey

Here's something that we slapped together recently that I needed when having to quickly grab all items from a given document. It's not the prettiest thing in the world, but it allows me to get some quick-and-dirty information on a given document!

What we have here is formula that I've put into a SmartIcon. This "function" allows me to select a given document in a database, and with a single click I'll receive an email that details all NotesItems in the document along with their respective values. I've added a carrot (^) as a seperator between the NotesItem name and it's correlating value. This allows me to take the resultant "table", copy/paste into Microsoft Excel (or whichever spreadsheet app you choose), and break the data into columns using ^ as my delimeter.

temp := "";
tmp := @DocFields;
@For(n := 1; n <= @Elements(tmp); n := n + 1;
temp := temp + tmp[n] + "^" + @Text(@GetField(tmp[n])) + @NewLine);

@MailSend( @UserName ; "" ; "" ; "Field Values" ; temp ; ""; "" )

It's pretty simple and to the point, and it got me data from given documents in any database without a lot of headaches! And please note - you're limited to size here (as well as a few other things) - I use this to grab quick information from relatively moderate-sized documents. Running this on a document with 1000 NotesItems with a chapter's worth of data stored in each will result in "Out of Memory"-styled errors.
