Domino design problem !!!

I'm trying (for the first time)to build a database available for the web. I have two questions about this.
I have created two columms in the view which display the title of the document and document number. When i view the database via a browser, the two columms are to close together, i want to create a little gap between them. How can I do that ? (first question)
When i open a view on the web, it returns for default 30 documents. Where can i change this value ?

Greetings Bob !!!

Create a column between your existing columns, with " " this will give you space.

to change the value of default returned documents do this:
in the link to the view.
change the COUNT , to the number of documents you want to view !

Sorry, but this is not where i'm looking for.
The first solution you gave is not giving me enough space between the two columms,and the second solution i don't want to use, because i'm using a navigator and don't want to use a URL to open a view, so i can easily copy the database around and don't have to change the URL when i do this.

Thanks anyway.....

Hi bob,

You have two options:
1. select for web access treate view contents as HTML checkbox in view property in design mode.

After that insert one column between ur two existing column, select formula and write following formula:\
"&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp"

Save the changes and open the view from brwoser u will get ur result.

2. IF u don't want to select ur view as HTML then insert one column and write HTML tag [<spacer size='10'>] in formula, pls. varify the specer size syntex in html i don't remember at present properly.

I don't understand ur second question can u pls. write in detail.

TIA

I think he means, the default number of documents listed in a view when opened via web. lets say he's got 50 documents in a view, but only 25 show on the first screen via web. the user must then press NEXT to get the next 25.

i guess he wants to change the number of default on every "page"

Yes....that's what i mean Kimda !!!

Your suggestion niraj m patel didn't worked out because i don't want to view the contents of the view in HTML and to use the option SPACER SIZE works only for Netscape Browser and we the IE browser.... sorry !!!

Here my answer..

First Q: In the view column property chnge the title contents like this:
[<td colspan=80>Column Title</td>]

Second Q: Number of documents displayed in a view is set  in the server document under "HTTP Server" section.
There is a "Conversion/Display" region with Default and Maximum lines per view. This values are set for all databases displayed with this http server.

Regards,

Thanks Stamp....

Second Q the solution.....

First Q didn't work right away, but when i have put the HTML in the column formula, it worked......

One little question maybe you can answer... I want to hide the column with this HTML for Notes users, so i have put your code in a formula:

@If(@ClientType = "Web" ;
    "[<td colspan=10></td>]" ;
    "" ) ;

This didn't work, do you know why ???

When i resolve the value @ClientType in the column formula, you get as result always NONE

try this:
@If(@ClientType != "Notes" ;
    "[<td colspan=10></td>]" ;
    "" ) ;

I know its the same, but it always works for me:)

Didn't work either Ghassan...

When i add @ClientType as formula in the view i always get as result NONE as value in the column.
even if i look at the DB via a browser the result from @ClientType is NONE
