Hello,

I have a PTO database that has a button to open the basic Calendar view; however, I would like the button to open the calendar and then go to the day off requested. Example, I have a field called StartDate and I would like the button to open up the calendar and go to that date.

So far I have been trying to use the @Command( [CalendarGoTo]), but I can't figure out how to get the value from the StartDate field. Does this need to be done via Lotusscript?

Thanks in advance.

This was embarrassingly simple. I just used this. It only highlights the day and it doesn't open it. What code will open the day?


date := StartDate;
@Command( [SwitchView] ; "Calendar" );
@Command( [CalendarGoTo]; date);

Open in new window

What exactly do you mean when you say "open the day"?
Open a document shown in that date or change the calendar view display property to show only selected date (not week or month)?

Yes, open the view so it only shows that day. Right now it displays the month with the day highlighted. I want to see only the day. I was getting errors when the StartDate field was blank so I add an if statement.

date := StartDate;
@If(date="";@Command( [SwitchView] ; "Calendar" );
@Command( [SwitchView] ; "Calendar" ) & @Command( [CalendarGoTo]; date))

Open in new window

I can't find them in the documentation, but I found this that might help you to modify the view:

@Command([CalendarFormat]; "type")

where type is
1 : One day format
2: Two days
7: One week
14: Two weeks
30: One months

The double quotes are required.
