I would like to see a complete overhaul of the Symphony Programability Model:
1. we need a way in Symphony to create template and file code, much like VBA is used in Office. It needs to be code that executes when a document is opened or a new document ...
When I create new lotuscript agents, I want a default set of code to drop in. Not just "option declare" but I may want to predefine some things that I use nearly every time I write an agent.
Some examples I might use:
Dim session ...
The Document/NotesDocument classes currently allow read access to things like creation date, last modified, etc.
However, there are a lot more properties to documents than that (when created in the current file to name one).
These should be made available as properties like the others.
when debugging scripts with many iterations of a specific task (e.g. importing data, processing all docs in a view, ...) I often have a situation where I want to debug only if a certain condition is met, e.g. in the import data line a field contains the value xyz. It ...
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.
I'd really like to be able to send a file attachment as a response without a redirect (since I'm creating the file in memory, I don't want to save it and then purge it at some later date).
Just like I can Option Declare, or Option Private, or Option Base 0...
Allow me to turn off the NotesDocument extended syntax. (ie: NotesDocument.subject="blah" or subject=NotesDocument.subject(0) )
Manypeople think it was a mistake to ever offer this capability in the first place. It's certainly lead to some terrible ...
On error, produce a 'core dump' of all defined variables, objects, and a call trace.
The 'core dump' might provide a limited (one-level) listing of defined objects with their property values, and all local and global variable values. Going down more than one level might end up with a ...
This would be the compliment to the @PickList([FOLDERS]...) function in formula language, where the folders are displayed in a tree format with folders icons. There might not appear to be a huge need for methods like this now, but as more companies work on mail file solutions to meet records ...
With notesDxlImporter we can insert code in for example database scripts. In the process the compiler tries to automatically compile this fresh code. Unfortuatedly I get no information about if the code actually did compile or did not due to errors in the inserted code in the new environment like ...
Similar to LSGMTTime and LSLocalTime, it would be nice if it was easier to get a UTC formatted date.
(ps It would also be nice to fix LSGMTTime so that it returns a time component when it works out to midnight. This would make writing our own UTC functions, among ...
Because Lotusscript is a great language to develop applications with.
My idea is that why can't it evolve into a language that can be used to develop application using the eclipe framework.
Imagine a windows or perhaps Linux or even a Mac OS X application created using lotusscript.
Classes for ...
So that there is no confusion in the date ...
