Popup on open of View?

Looking ot figure out a way to have an informational popup happen when a user open a paricular view. Is there a way to add code to the button to the view in the outline? Or could I put something in the QueryOpen that will generate a popup window when they enter the view?

You could put something in the PostOpen event of the view.  Example

      Dim workspace As New NotesUIWorkspace
      Dim askme As Integer
      askme = workspace.Prompt(PROMPT_OK, "Reminder", "A message here")

However, if the view is in a frameset it may show the message twice, but not always!

This works for what I need, one last item. How can I convert this so the alert is on two lines in the prompt window.
Sub Postopen(Source As Notesuiview)
	Dim workspace As New NotesUIWorkspace
	Dim askme As Integer
	askme = workspace.Prompt(PROMPT_OK, "Note about Upgrade View", "This view will show all requests for BlackBerry upgrades. The form to request the upgrade is available from the New button in the left hand navigation. ")
End Sub

Open in new window

Add a Chr(10) to force a new line.....



Sub Postopen(Source As Notesuiview)
        Dim workspace As New NotesUIWorkspace
        Dim askme As Integer
        askme = workspace.Prompt(PROMPT_OK, "Note about Upgrade View", "This view will show all requests for BlackBerry upgrades. " + Chr(10)+ "The form to request the upgrade is available from the New button in the left hand navigation. ")
End Sub

Open in new window
