Names field validation mystery
Posted on 2005-04-12
I'm somewhat new to Notes and using Notes 5.0.5.
I want my document to have a field with similar functionality to the "SendTo" field in the mail database. I want a user to input a name and if the name is not found in any address books I want the field validation to fail. SendTo does this perfectly in the mail database, but I can't seem to mimic this behavior in my database. I have copied the properties of the SendTo field exactly in my field but nothing seems to make the field validate itself. I thought that perhaps using "Use Address Dialog for choices" would help, but it did not.
I have copied every property and even the Input Translation for the SendTo field, but it still will not perform a lookup. Is there some trick to getting it to work? Is there some database setting that must be done? What am I overlooking?
