Lotus Notes/Domino - Web App hanging if you click Dialog boxes that refresh the document too quickly.
Posted on 2007-11-21
I've just finished my 1st domino web app. It generally works well, but had an annoying glitch.
I have a few dropdown fields that are set to refresh the document on change, so the choices for other dependant dropdowns get updated, depending on what's chosen.
This works fine, apart from if you quickly click another dropdown before the page has dissapeared and reloaded. It just hangs.
I've treid hiding the dropdowns if @IsDocBeingLoaded or @isDocBeingRefreshed, but they either still show, or don't ever appear.
I'm not sure it's relevant but the code for my dropdown field options is similar to this:-
"<SELECT DEPARTMENT>":@DbLookup("":"NoCache";"":""; "Departments";location;"Department";[FailSilent] )
And I have some other computed fields. e.g
@DbLookup("":"NoCache";"":""; "Location And Departments";location+ " " + department;"DepartmentApprover";[FailSilent] )
