How can I get different "Views" of the Domino data by passing variables in the URL without having to hardcode the views???

In Cold Fusion, I can pass a field value and run an SQL statement to extract and display what I want! Domino/Notes does use SQL but isn't there some way of requesting the data (view) to be generated via the URL without hardcoding the view???

AFAIK there is no way to do what you want.
You can restrict by user by using $Readers fields on the documents in the view.
You can time restrict using @Now/@Today in the view selection

What I did when I needed to do something similar to what you want is wrote an agent that did a database.search to get a doc. collection and then loop through them building html to output in 'view-ish' format.

Hi


If I got you right, you need to send a query to the domino server and extract the matching documents.

For that you can use search method to accomplish this.

search Lotus Notes and the Internet database located in doc directory for more info on search methods

Good Luck

If you are in Notes 5.x you can use a Show Single Category view (read about it in the Designer Help).  If you are in a version earlier than R5.x, you can create an agent that performs a search (NotesDatabase.DBSearch, or NotesDatabase.FTSearch if the db is full text indexed).  Call the agent using the ?OpenAgent url command, and pass the search params to the agent in the Query_String.  Use NotesSession.DocumentContext to get the Query_String, then perform the search and return the results.
