Send the link as .ndl file

NDL FILE LOOKS LIKE THIS,

<NDL>
<REPLICA 85256B8E:0077654B>
<VIEW OF47F4F3DC:7D016172-ON85256B8E:0079840C>
<NOTE OF144FE911:D5D788E1-ON85256B8F:00729935>
<HINT>SERVER NAME</HINT>
</NDL>

So format each line and construct a file with appropriate tags and name it with extension .ndl.

Instruct the user to launch the file and which in turn would launch the document.

The NDL files can easily be created manually by

edit --> copy as link --> doclink, dblink or view link

And then pasting the clipboard content on a notepad and saving the file with an ndl extension.

Well, creating one programmatically needs some scripting for sure.

When you create any links in notes and goto notepad and paste it , the information that notes used is displayed.

Here is the example,

Sub Click(Source As Button)
     Dim s As New NotesSession
     Dim db As NotesDatabase
     Dim view As NotesView
     Dim doc As NotesDocument
     Set db = s.CurrentDatabase
     Set view = db.GetView( "All" )
     Key = "Frame2"
     Set doc = view.GetDocumentByKey( Key )
     If Not doc Is Nothing Then
          replicaID = Left(db.ReplicaID, 8) & ":" & Right(db.ReplicaID, 8)
          vUNID = "OF" & Mid(view.UniversalID, 1, 8 ) & ":" & Mid(view.UniversalID, 9, 8 ) & "-ON" & Mid(view.UniversalID, 17, 8 )  & ":" & Mid(view.UniversalID, 25, 8 )
          dUNID = "OF" & Mid(doc.UniversalID, 1, 8 ) & ":" & Mid(doc.UniversalID, 9, 8 ) & "-ON" & Mid(doc.UniversalID, 17, 8 )  & ":" & Mid(doc.UniversalID, 25, 8 )
          fnum% = Freefile
          Open "C:\" & doc.Universalid & ".ndl" For Output As #fnum%
          Print #fnum%, db.Title
          Print #fnum%, "<NDL>"
          Print #fnum%, "<REPLICA " & replicaID & ">"
          Print #fnum%, "<VIEW " & vUNID & ">"
          Print #fnum%, "<NOTE " & dUNID & ">"
          Print #fnum%, "<HINT>" & db.Server & "</HINT>"
          Print #fnum%, "</NDL>"
          Close #fnum%
     End If
End Sub
