Hello Guys
Long time since I came here for a question , as i dont' work that much on Notes nowadays.

Anyway, please help me with this question:

I have a embedded view and the database is pointing to User's mail file. It shows up the user's inbox when previewed, but the sorting is done on the first column (who), I want to change it . I have enabled the setting in the embedded view that says "recent first",but still the sorting needs to be changed, as it confuses the end user. Is there anyway to change the sorting of a embedded view, remember, i don't have access to the user's inbox, so nothign can be done at the view level.

Many thanks for any insights

Yooooooo Bro!! Long time no EE! :-))

Is it Notes or browser? You must be proficient enough by now in all dirty browser tricks, so I assume it is Notes.

It shows the Inbox-folder, or the All documents view? Or even another one?  I suppose that you didn't use the correct view. Could you test with a different one?

Is it the user himself who opens his own mail database via your interface? Does the user have Designer rights on his own database? If so you could...
- remove the PPInbox folder
- copy the Inbox-folder to a new folder
- copy all documents from the Inbox folder to the new folder (AddToFolder)
- modify the design of the folder on the fly, using a NotesView and the NotesDocument it is in
- change the order of the view, and all the rest

Not easy, but can be done in LotusScript. Or in C-API...

On the first place, why is it sorted with the first column?
Is this how it's supposed to behave?

I suppose that it mimics the folder as the user leaves it. I once noticed that I had problems with a view that I used from LotusScript. The view was designed as a normal user view, but I thought I could use it as one of my lookup views. It worked, of course, but when I clicked a sortable column, my script no longer functioned correctly. It apparently uses the view as it is left by the user. Maybe that's also the case in your app.?

Bro
I changed the way we show the inbox. We removed the embedded view and change it to a frame that picks up the inbox. Strangely enough, everything looks normal. Can i go ahead and delete this question?
