Hi!

Here's the code, in the formula of an action bar Button:

@PostedCommand([FileSave]);
@MailSend("someone/something";"";"";"title";"";"see this document...";[PriorityNormal]:[IncludeDoclink]);
@If(@PostedCommand([FileSave]); @PostedCommand([FileCloseWindow]); "")

Code don't work if the the document is actually being created, and button is pressed.  (document saves, but MaiSend fails...)

Code works if I first save it with a regular Save button like:

@If(@PostedCommand([FileSave]); @PostedCommand([FileCloseWindow]); "")

...and then, re-open the saved document and press the previous button

????

You cannot send unsaved document as mail doc link !!

First save the document and then use @mailsend

You might try this:

@If(@PostedCommand([FileSave]); @Do(@MailSend("someone/something";"";"";"title";"";"see this document...";[PriorityNormal]:[IncludeDoclink]); @PostedCommand([FileCloseWindow])); "")

that first @PostedCommand([FileSave]) is supposed to operate immediately in the formula, but if I remember correctly there's a bug that causes it not to work.  What else is new, right?

Another option would be to add the MailSend line as a formula in the PostSave event.

Your question is your answer too. Food for thought:

What came first? Egg or the chicken?

Exactly! Exactly what Domino feels when you ask it to send a link to a document that doesn't physically exist yet. When you are editing a document, it is in the client's memory (webb browser or Notes client). It doesn't exist yet. Only when you call a save on it, it begins to exist (physically). Prior to it, it is just a unsaved working copy. And you cannot send a link to what doesn't exist yet!

It makes maximum sense to use a straight save such as @Command([FileSave]);

The document is being saved anyways, right?

Increasing question points from 100 to 200...

Still do not work...  I tried different things:

@Command([FileSave]); just before the MailSend...

Putting the MailSend in the Postsave event...

I also tried to to another action button, completely independant, containing this formula:

FIELD SaveOptions :=  SaveOptions;
@SetField("SaveOptions"; "1");
@Command([FileSave]);
@PostedCommand([FileSave])

- - -

I've got a SaveOptions field in the form, of course...

So, even if I press this new button first, and after I press the "mailsend" button, the mail won't send WITH an IncludeDocLink...

Mail will always send if I don't not have an IncludeDocLink, but I must have one...

YOur best bet would be to use LS. You want code for that?

LS stands for Lotus Script.


      Dim session As New notessession
      Dim db As notesdatabase
dim ws as new notesuiworkspace
dim uidoc as notesuidocument
            Dim doc As notesdocument
            Dim maildoc As notesdocument
      Dim Body As NotesRichTextItem
      
set uidoc=ws.currentdocument
set doc=uidoc.document
            Set db=session.currentdatabase
                  tmpname=doc.Fieldname(0)  'Fieldname is the field which holds person names.
            doc.Saveoptions="1"
                         

                  Set maildoc = New NotesDocument( db )
                  maildoc.Form = "Memo"
                  maildoc.Subject = _
                  "Please Review New Application"
                  Set Body=New NotesRichTextItem(maildoc,"Body")
                  message="Please Review the New Application"
                  Call Body.AppendText(message)
                  Call Body.AddNewLine(2)
                  message1="Please Click here to open the Link=========>>"
                  Call Body.AppendText(message1)
                  Call Body.AppendDocLink(doc,"Please Click this Link to open the Document")
                  Call maildoc.Send( True, tmpname )
call doc.save(true,true)
            call uidoc.close


Please the above code in an action button and use it.

I tried to paste it on the action button, selecting "Lotus Script" and putting it in the default "Sub Click(Source As Button)"

Didn't work on Domino server...  Said it couldn't find the proper Database
