html form submission.

We are upgrading to lotus notes... I am working on a web application that sends several e-mails, some with forms with text-area's, etc... that need to be submitted...   I have been asked to find out if it's possible to submit the forms through both the regular lotus notes client, and the web based client.


thanks...

It's something Notes does a whole lot better, if you convert the application to a Notes application !
You can try to integrate what you have in Notes, but it's probably easier to convert your application (or at least the part that does the submitting)

The problems submitting the form will not be solved if you use Notes, btw.

What I failed to mention is that the application is already built... Has been for some time now... We currently have users using outlook 2000, and netscape messenger 4.7.   We send html forms, and are discovering that outlook 2003 sometimes has a problem submitting these forms (security settings maybe).  I am wondering if Lotus Notes has any problems with this...

if it is having HTMl graphics, users using Lotus Notes mail can't see them. it all depends on the settings in person document(MIME settings. u can play with it and can know the differences)

Paste the code which ur using to send email. this may help us to findout what is the problem and what are the things it is sending in emails.

thanks.

and what version of Notes you are using?

If it is ND6, there should not be any problem.

I have a copy of the 6.5.2 client installed on my desktop for testing purposes.

When the user first opens the email, they can click the textarea (to put the cursor into it), but you can't see the cursor. It doesn't seem like the textarea has the focus.  But if you press keys, they are entered into the textarea.  If you double click on the message text somewhere, it seems to go into "edit" mode, and then you can tell you can type in the text area.  Have you noticed this?

This may just be something I have to deal with.

This is a huge application, and I don't think converting it to Notes is possible...  Especially since it won't solve the form submission problem.   I will definitely check into Applications in Notes for future projects...  This particular project has been written for about 5 years, and has over 70 cfm pages.  It's a database driven app, and does a lot more than sending emails and submitting forms.

;)  thanks,

You are talking about the invisible cursor problem, right?
