Hi - I'm looking for advice please.
I'm building a web based app in Domino. The user starts with a form displaying a whole dashboard full of data based on embedded views. They need to create a new data item, complete the form and then return to the original page in a refreshed state so that they see the newly added data in one of the embedded views.
I can create the form via a button and make it appear in a new browser window. I can then change the $$Return field to say 'Thanks for the new data'. This is clunky though.
Is it possible to have it automatically close that new window and trigger a refresh of the first browser window ?
Alternatively would it be better to load the new form in the current window and then return in some way to the original form. Problem is that I can't easily provide a URL that maps to the current form because it has dynamic fields on it that drive the embedded views. I don't want the user to have to keep selecting categories each time they add a new piece of data.
Hope this makes sense - if anyone can help I'd appreciate it.
