It's quite easy - all you need to do is to create a LotusScript Agent which runs on the Domino Server. This Agent is then triggered with the OnWebOpen form event. All you need then is a field on your form to store the hit count.

The Agent is as follows:

Sub Initialize
     Dim Session As New NotesSession
     Dim ProfileDoc As NotesDocument
     Dim doc As NotesDocument
     Dim num As Double
     Dim NumStr As String
     
     Set db = Session.CurrentDatabase
     
     'The following line gets a handle to the current document
     Set doc = Session.DocumentContext
     
     'The following line creates a Profile document called 'Domino' the first time
     'it is executed and from then on modifies the existing 'Domino' document
     Set ProfileDoc = db.GetProfileDocument("Domino")
     
     NumStr = ProfileDoc.num(0)
     If NumStr = "" Then
          num = 1
     Else
          num = Cdbl(NumStr) + 1
     End If
     
     ProfileDoc.num = Cstr(num)
     Call profiledoc.save(False,False)
     
     doc.Number = num
     
End Sub


Once you have created the agent (on the Server) you then need to create a field on your Web page - call the field "Number", set it's type to "Numeric" and "Computed". Type "Number" in the Formula box (to tell the field to display it's own value).

To trigger the Agent you need to set the WebQueryOpen Event of your form to run the Agent with:

@Command([ToolsRunMacro];"CounterAgent")


That should be it! Good luck.

Without agents it looks like this:

FIELD CountDate := CountDate;
FIELD Counter := Counter;
count := @GetProfileField("WebCounter";"Counter";"Anonymous");
date := @Now;
@If(count='';@Do(@SetField("count";1);@SetProfileField("WebCounter";"CountDate";date;"Anonymous"));@SetField("count";count+1));
@SetProfileField("WebCounter";"Counter";count;"Anonymous");
@SetField("Counter";count);
@SetField("CountDate";@GetProfileField("WebCounter";"CountDate";"Anonymous"))

Put above code into "Value" event of a field named "CountDate" of type "Time: Sow Date".
Have another filed named "Counter" of type "Number".

This code in a value event do the same as the agent from dmpdmpdmp above. It's up to you what you like to use.

Here is a modification to the same agent that do almost the same, the difference is that in this case the hit counter is independent for each document a user access from the website (using the same form)


Sub Initialize
     Dim Session As New NotesSession
     Dim doc As NotesDocument
     Dim counter As Double
     Dim countStr As String
     
     Set db = Session.CurrentDatabase
     Set doc = Session.DocumentContext
     
     countStr = doc.FCounter(0)
   
     If countStr = "" Then
          counter = 1
     Else
          counter = Cdbl(countStr) + 1
     End If
     
     doc.FCounter = counter
     Call doc.save(False,False)
End Sub

Put this code on an agent, which should be on the WebQueryOpen of your form.
FCounter should be on your form and its type is Number and Computed

Good Luck!
