Remove Icons from Notes R4.6x Workspace with LotusScript
Posted on 1999-12-03
I'm deploying a Notes R4.6.4 mail enabled, mail-in database with notifications sent to users. This mail notification contains a doclink to an IT database containing a WinZip self-extracting archive, with a LotusScript button that sends mail back to the IT manager to track user compliance and provide audit trail for a user community of about 100.
I don't want the icon for the database to appear on their workspaces, and there appears to be no UI or backend method to remove it from the workspace.
One high level management user has already noticed the icon, and wanted to know what it was and why she couldn't see any of the secured views, etc. Our goal is to keep users out of this database, click the doclink that auto-launches the attachment, and then click the LotusScript button to end the download process. The LotusScript buttons sends mail back to a secured view in the database.
I need to add code that removes the icon from the db, and according to article #164664 in the 9/99 Notes KB, this can't be done. I can't find any method belonging to the NotesUIWorkspace class to accomplish this.
