Debug My Debug Code.

Hello all,
This one should be simple enough, I'm just not seeing it.

I'm trying to solve the debug issue. See if you have the same issue. If I'm in the notes client and I switch to debug mode, notes says it's in debug mode but really isn't yet. But, if you change views and then go back, it will start the debugger. I am trying to make a generic "Switch To Debug" that I can throw in to any DB. Here's what I've got so far.

In LS:
Sub Initialize
Dim ws As New NotesUIWorkspace
Dim uidb As NotesUIDatabase
Dim uiview As NotesUIView
Dim uidoc As NotesUIDocument

Dim s As New NotesSession
Dim db As NotesDatabase
Dim view As NotesView
Dim views As Variant
Dim NotesViewArray() As NotesView
Dim agt As NotesAgent
'Dim i As Integer

Set uidb = ws.CurrentDatabase
Set uiview = ws.CurrentView
Set uidoc =ws.CurrentDocument 'prompt for close and switch views then reopen

Set db = s.CurrentDatabase
views = db.Views
'i = Ubound(db.Views)
Forall v In views
If v.name <> uiview.View.Name Then
currentname = uiview.View.Name
selectname = v.name
Exit Forall
Else
selectname=uiview.View.Name
currentname = selectname
End If
End Forall

If currentname <> selectname Then
uidb.OpenView(Cstr(selectname))
uidb.OpenView(Cstr(currentname))
End If
End Sub

**But I don't know how to switch to debug mode from LS

and in formula:
@Command([DebugLotusScript]);
viewTitle:=@ViewTitle;
@Command([SwitchView]);
@Command([switchview];viewTitle);
@all;
**But I can't find the view names, namely one to switch to. @viewtitle will get the current for me, but I need to find an alternative view if one exists and use it in the first switchview. It works now but I have to manually select a view via a goto dialog when the first switchview is executed.

Okay, There's my predicament. Thanks greatly for the help. This is just a fun side tool that I've wanted. If anyone has an alternative suggestion I'm up for that too.

There is some timing issue here

try this instead

@Command([DebugLotusScript]);
viewTitle:=@ViewTitle;
@PostedCommand([SwitchView]);
@PostedCommand([switchview];viewTitle);

This still asks me which view to switch to(@PostedCommand([SwitchView]);).  I'm looking, if it's in formuala language, for a way to grab the view names so I don't have to ask which view to switch to.

Thanks for the input Heman.

Then remove that line and chck with this

@Command([DebugLotusScript]);
viewTitle:=@ViewTitle;
@PostedCommand([switchview];viewTitle);

I was about to say that this wouldn't do anything, but then I tried it and apparently it doesn't care which view - even if it's the current view - it switches to, it works.

Very Nice Job.
Thanks for sorting my little problem out.
