Frustrated by the inconvenience and incapability of lotusscript, I've expected improvements for years but just disappointed as each Notes release came. I know as created as a script languate embedded in Notes, we can't expect many things like multiple thread, but there's still a lot of space to improve.
  1. Support events of user defined class.
  2. Support method overload.
  3. Change error processing to a more mordern and powerful way of Exception.
  4. convenient use of array like
    dim a(3) as string
    a={"b","c","d"}
    or dim a as new string() {"b","c","d"}
        ...
Yes, there is a 100 per cent OO language out there: Java. But Notes UI are not implemented as Objects. In many circumstances we have to rely on lotuscript. In fact we can only write code in a event-based manner for things like forms instead of creating a UserForm inherited from a parent NotesForm. So I hope the language can obtain more attention in IBM.

And when it is being upgraded, please add the Lotusscript declarations for all C API functions too.

These are all good ideas Starrow, but I think they should probably be split out into seperate entries. Otherwise we could just have one idea called "Improve Notes and Domino" and then never bother getting more specific. It also allows the IBM lurkers to gauge specific requirements to see what is more important to the community.

Hi Starrow,

as much as I like your ideas, it would be nice, if you first search the existent ideas. At least for the points 2. and 4. I have written ideas already.

I'm always for improvements.

For problem 4 couldn't you use a split to more quickly create the array?

Dim a as variant
a = split("a,b,c",",")
