Hi

We have Notes and Domino 5.02b

I have in a database a form that opens a view against the maildatabase. If at user have this database open (it is bookmarked by default in our organisation) and also the maildatabase open in a normal way and shut down Notes he/she get a red panicmessage.

We have tracked that error to the database. The two views is not syncronize between each other. If the user delete mail in the normal view it not update the special database and the message lost handle etc appear.

If a user press F9 and syncronize the two views before he shut down Notes the problem disappear.

Is it possible to inside a lotusscript generate a F9 before the database shut down (i e when the user shut down Notes). That would update the view before it closes and the problem is solved, I think.

Without knowing more about the "special database," it is hard to provide specific instructions. However here is what the script would look like:

Dim workspace As New NotesUIWorkspace
Call workspace.OpenDatabase _
("Server", "database", "view")
Call workspace.ViewRefresh

I'm not completely sure that this will do the trick, but it probably will. This is hard to test since it happens so fast that you can't see if it is working.

Anyways, put that script in the QueryClose event of the mail database, or you could put it in the "special database", in which case you would need to link to the database using the source and doing a source.getview and then refreshing that.

Hope this helps,

Zaphod.
