Access to Lotus Notes UI from C#
Posted on 2010-09-24
I am starting a new project to link our CRM (which is written in C#) to Lotus Notes. I have already linked our program to Outlook and GroupWise, now I need to do the same for Notes.
I need to create Emails, Appointments, Tasks and Contacts. I have read how I can create these objects in code, and that's not my main question right now; what I want to know is once these objects are created, (and I add my custom values, Fields, Tags, etc.) is there a way to allow my users to use the familiar Lotus Notes UI to edit and save/send these items?
For example, in the Outlook object model you can create an appointment object in code and then display the normal appointment window:
Appt.Display(true); // assuming Appt is an appointment object
So far I've read that maybe the UI is only available via LotusScript, but I'm wondering if there is a way to invoke the UI directly from C# as I have done with the others?
