Is this true: Lotusscript button doesn't work at all in IE?

Hello,

I've made a button in lotusscript that I want to use in a browser (IE). When I had formula language in the button it works fine, but when I change it to script the text is still there, but not underlined, and clicking doesn't do a thing. It seems like the Lotusscript button isn't accepted by IE. Is this true?!

What I wanted to do is to combine a document save with a javascript history.back(). I think lotusscript is the only way to combine these things. I couldn't find a way to call javascript in formula language, nor find a way in javascript to save the current document (from IE that is).

Bye, Bert.

lotus script is supported either in webquerysave or webqueryopen via agent. You cannot run scripts directly from a button (certain limitations apply).

As you were mentioning that you were having formula, you can also execute back function from formula. Try this

@Urlopen("Javascript:history.back()")

Your answer answers this question, so the points are yours.

Unfortunately the URLopen only seems to work when it's the only command in the formula. Combined with Filesave it goes wrong. If I have

@Command([FileSave]);
@URLOpen("javascript:history.back()")

or first the @URLopen then the Filesave. In both cases it only executes the filesave and stays on the same window.
If you know right away what is wrong I'll be glad to hear it, if not, I'll search on next week.

Bye, Bert.

That is right

I missed that

Did you try this

@Command([filesave]);
@Command([fileclosewindow]);

Hi Hemanth,

That has been my first try, but fileclosewindow does not work on the web. I can't remember if it goes to a 'can't-find-it' page or just does nothing. Either way, it is not going to the previous page. I found on the notes website there are more people struggeling here, to combine the page-back (seems only possible with javascript) with the save document (seems only possible with formula or script) and these 2 cannot be combined.
Hmm, bottom line is 2 different buttons...

Bye, Bert.

Try this Bert

Have a hidden field called http_referer and default value as http_referer.

Create one more hidden field called $$Return and refer the value of http_referer.

Use Filesave command only

That's it!

I put
<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="Javascript">
history.back()
</SCRIPT>

into the $$return field and that does the trick.

I did use the FileCloseWindow as well (to force the $$return I guess) but I haven't tested without. Might as well work.

Still a tip for notes development to have easier ways to mix the script(s) and formula and etc...

Thanks, Bert.

It is bit tricky developing web app in Domino. Especially I trip on lots of potholes and then endup doing things in JS.

One good thing is I learnt JS verywell.

Have a good one !
