Strikethrough Text Using @Commands

Hello everyone...
I would like to create a smarticon that adds a strikethrough to highlighted text.  Can this be done without Lotuscript?  If so, how?
Here is a formula that I use to add a date/time stamp.  I would like to add a strikethrough in place of the textbold command.  Is this possible?  Thanks.

@Command([TextNormal]);
@Command([TextSetFontColor]; [DarkBlue]);
@Command([TextBold]);
@Command([EditInsertText]; @Text("("));
@Command([EditInsertText]; @Text("John Doe"));
@Command([EditInsertText]; @Text(" - "));
@Command([EditInsertText]; @Text(@Now));
@Command([EditInsertText]; @Text(") - "));
@Command([TextBold])

And you can't use lotusscript in smarticons.

You could add a Lotusscript agent to "a" database, and then call that agent from you smarticon.

@Command([fileopendatabase] ; "server" : "database" );
@command([toolsrunmacro];"agent)

That agent can contain the lotusscript to do the same stuff (using notesrichtextstyle ... see the help for examples)

cheers,

Tom

Why is that you want this only on smarticons, can't it be done in a database as an action ?

Oops, I left out "no" -- there is no such @Command.

Bozzie's suggestion will NOT work, as NotesRichTextStyle in LotusScript is only good for switching styles for the next bit of text to be added to the rich text field.

If you can do it from action button then I have a simple soln.

Download the sendkeys script library from this location

http://www.notesdesign.com/ndhtml/ndsendky.htm

In the script libraries copy SendKeys Library and paste it into your db.

Create an agent called Strikethrough, set to run Manually from agent list. Here is the script to simulate strikethrough

' (Declarations)
Use "SendKeys Library"

' Initialize event
Sub Initialize
      PushKeys "%TK"      
End Sub

Save the agent.

Now, Create an action where you will set the field value to this formula

@Command([TextNormal]);
@Command([TextSetFontColor]; [DarkBlue]);
@Command([TextBold]);
@Command([EditInsertText]; @Text("("));
@Command([EditInsertText]; @Text("John Doe"));
@Command([EditInsertText]; @Text(" - "));
@Command([EditInsertText]; @Text(@Now));
@Command([EditInsertText]; @Text(") - "));
@Command([EditSelectAll]);
@PostedCommand([ToolsRunMacro]; "(Strikethrough)")

Hemanth,

Or to keep it simple, just a smarticon that executes an external sendKeys program (e.g., a simple VB app), via @Command([Execute]; ... )
