Hello Experts,

i know its possible to create a database, documents and agents with com.
But is it not possible to create a new form with com ? What is the right method to create a new form with fields.
What i want with com is :
1. Create a database on a server
2. Create a new Form
3. Create all type of notes fields on this new form
4. fill that fields with different values from an odbc database (oracle 8.x)
------
5. Import some rows from oracle in this new Notes Database
6. Dynamically exchange data between Notes and Oracle with com and asp.

thx for your help

As far as I know notes only exposes two top level ole objects that are usable as the root objects for OLE automation ( COM--)... These are Notes.NotesSession And Notes.NotesUIWorkspace.

Neither of these objects or their respective child objects has methods that give you the ability to create a design element such as a form..

This task is extremely difficult to do even in Native languages such as Lotusscript .. So I doubt very much that this could be achieve at all with COM...

It is possible to create a form dynamically using C API , if you have Lotus KB Check out Document # 144639.

Or look at

Supplemental to my answer , you could of course get oracle and notes to talk directly to each other using either LS:DO ( ODBC Connection) or Oracle LSX ( which is part of Domino Connect )

Hi Simon !

I have checked out the Lotus Site and found nothing about my stuff ... only
c-libs ... i think i have to wait for a better com support by lotus. But i still the problem with the automation from Lotus with my VB. I need an idea how can i solve this problem. Maybe with creating an agent, which could do this job with my form and the fields.
Is it possible to start this agent from VB and get a return value if the operation was succesful or not ?
