I am new on Lotus Notes developing and I want to create forms, for example with a set of radiobuttons that changes views upon whitch button the user clicks at.

It seems that when the form is closed the form try to save the actual state of the button. If I disable a ordinary user rights to save anything the form anyway try to save, but in that case an errormessage appears.

How do I write code that force the form not to save anything?

Is the form used mainly to display an embedded view to the user?  That's what it sounds like to me.  In that case, treat the form as a profile document. This means that the the same 'document' will be opened by each user.  To get to the form use the formula @Command( [EditProfile] ; "Name of Form" )  Then each user will open the same document.  Put a field on the form called SaveOptions.  Set the value of this field (computed) to 0.  Then every time this profile document is accessed, it will not be saved.
Hope this helps.

I'm sorry SaveOptions should be computed text and set to "0".

Alternatively, if you want the user to create a new form each time it is accessed, just use the SaveOptions field and the form will not save.
