Logging in Lotus Notes Application

I want to add logging capabilities in my Lotus Notes application. Basically I want to be able to log who make the change, when the change is made, and what field(s) is/are changed in a document. What is the best way to do this. I am thinking to also add this at the end of each document so the user knows who make the changes. Is this a good idea?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Use LotusScript. I've done this before years ago, can't remember the method I used exactly, but what springs to mind now is to create a copy of the document when it's put in edit mode and then when the document is saved, compare the copy to see what's changed and make your list.

Hi
here is an example of how to implement it http://www.openntf.org/projects/codebin/codebin.nsf/0/71E930683C3401A3C1256F2F00611BAA

Another method is to use the notes versioning. It's in the forms properties, first tab: versioning.

How can I import the script library? I am in the designer and only have 'New Script Library' button. When I click File, I do not see an import function

@umeli: have you tried to use the class? I followed the instruction and able to generate the history when a document is created the first time but not any of the changes.

And I do not understand why the code is placed on the PostEvent area. I still cannot make sense how the code is actually working.

In the end I wrote some codes in the PostOpen and QuerySave to make the comparison and log the changes.
