There is this view property "Collapse all when database is first opened" and then set OnOPEN to "Go to top row" and OnREFRESH to "Refresh Display"

I tried this solution.
It didn't work.
When I was already in the view and opened a document it's showing this category still open.

Thank you.

That will work only per session, meaning next time u come into the db it will collapse and show you !
Not when u switch the views, that is the max that you can get and it is a limtation due to indexing process

I've put the @command([ViewCollapseAll]) in the QueryOpen event of the view and it seems to work when you switch views.
I've tested it, expanding some categories then switching to another view and switching back to the categorized view and it would collapse all.
I also get an error when I open the database however. So, I tried with @PostedCommand and still got the error. I then tried the following. I put the commands
@command([OpenView];"viewname");
@PostedCommand([ViewCollapseAll]);
in the QueryOpen event and then I got two errors :
1. View or Navigator 'viewname' does not exist
2. Cannot execute the specified command
I must therefore conclude that the commands get executed before the database is opened and therefore the view is not known at the time of execution.

Anyway this is not the solution to your problem, but maybe it can shed some light on the problem so others may offer you a definite solution.

There is no possibility to do it on the view directly.
I redesigned the database. --->

I've greated a NAVIGATOR. On this navigator i do --->

@Command([ViewChange] ; "ViewName" );
@PostedCommand([ViewCollapseAll])

Thanks to all involved persons
