Lotus Software produced the Lotus 1-2-3 spreadsheet program, and later developed Lotus Notes, a groupware and email system. Following its acquisition by IBM, the Notes and Domino client/server collaborative platform were expanded to include functions such as email, calendars, to-do lists, contacts management, teamrooms, discussion forums, file sharing, microblogging, instant messaging, blogs, and user directories. IBM also release SmartSuite, a comprehensive office suite, and followed that with Symphony, unrelated to the Lotus suite of the same name.

Running Notes 9. Suddenly notes is crashing on start up. Shows the 'splash' window and then "An error has occurred in an IBM Notes Applciation", etc.
Tried killing processes, restarting PC and same thing happens each time.
So I thought I'd run a repair from installation files. It starts going through the motions, asks if I want to make Notes my default email, etc, I click continue and then an error message pops up: "Could not create the Java virtual machine" and then the installer exits.
I've searched this error and there are articles but do not relate to Lotus Notes per se.
Any ideas what I can do to try get Notes running again?
OS is WIn 10 up to date. Thanks

JavaScript Best Practices

Save hours in development time and avoid common mistakes by learning the best practices to use for JavaScript.

When user clicks a button I'd like it open a pdf or word document once they have furnished the file location and filename. So here is part of my code:

MyFileName = CurrentDoc.GetItemValue ("RecordFilePath")(0)  + "\" + CurrentDoc.GetItemValue ("RecordFileName")(0) + CurrentDoc.GetItemValue ("FileExt")(0)
FullCmd = "cmd /c " + """" + """" + MyFileName + """" + """"
i = Shell("taskkill /PID " + Shellid(FullCmd))

Reason for all the double quotes is that some of the file paths have an ampersand (&) and so I needed to have double " before and after to ensure it works.

However, the current problem is that when I click this button in Notes on my desktop (on the network) it doesn't open the file. But if I click the button twice, sometimes several times, the file sometimes opens. When It doesn't open I can see the 'tasks' flashing open and closed on my taskbar.
What is more confusing to me is if I do the same thing in Notes within a remote desktop session the file opens first time I click the button.

More info: running windows 10. If I go to start menu and paste the full cmd command (i.e. cmd /c ""\\servername\path\filename.pdf"" it opens the file (both on desktop and remote desktop session).

Any ideas how I can troubleshoot?

I can search Notes mails which I sent after 2019/09/01 with a query by '[PostedDate] > 2019/09/01'. However I want to search by hour, I mean, I want to search mails after 2019/09/01 10:00:00. Is it possible? If this is not supported by Notes, is there any workaround?

There is a Notes template and it has a form which contains a document link for server1/test. Now the server1/test will be deleted and the DBs will be moved into server server2/test.

I'd like to update the document link to change the reference to server2(Currently server2 does not exist yet). Is there a way to change the server1 information to server2?

I'd like to know how to implement Notes name picker in WEB UI (Not in XPages) in general. I putted Name picker in a form and viewed by Web, but it did not work. I'd like to use to show 'People' view of Domino directory in a Notes WEB UI dialog. What is the best approach?

In XPages view, I'd like to show show data specified by category values only. One of my idea is ... I check the value of each document  in 'rowAttrs' property. If it is NOT the specified value, set the rowattrs as "display:none". However I don't think this is good idea in case of a big view(there are lots of documents in a view). Is there a smart approach?

Sorry this is a basic question. I'm a new for Notes. I have lots of unclear points...

In Notes, there are two DBs, DB "A" and DB "B". A user  have an ACL for DB "A" but not DB "B".
When the user clicks a button in DB "A", I'd like to run an agent to update some data in DB B.
I feel this can be done by "RunOnServer". The agent will be run with 'Server' ACL. This server have a ACL fpr DB "B".

Is this my approach correct?

In Lotus script, I'd like to get text list data in a field as an array variable. The item num of the list data  is not fixed. I look for the way to check the item num by lotus script but I couldn't. Is there any way except for loop check?

I'd like to run SSJS and then CSJS when a user click a button on XPages dialog.
I simply add the next codes for the button but alert dialog does not appear.

            <xp:button value="set" id="button1">
                  <xp:eventHandler event="onclick" submit="true"
                        refreshMode="complete">
                        <xp:this.action>
                              <![CDATA[#{javascript:view.postScript('Alert("test")');}]]>

I think this is just simple error on my side but I am wasting time why this does not work? Do you have any suggestion? Or is there any method to run CSJS after SSJS when clicking a button?

Addr821 in NotesName class returns empty string if the notes mail address does not contain @Domain at the end of the address. However it does not work if @Domain exists. How can I judge the Mail address if it is a Notes mail or an E-mail address?

I am using IBM Notes 9.0.1 FP7 (Social Edition)

How can I search for all the mails in the inbox that have an attachment ?

Alternatively:
  • Hide all emails without an attachment
  • Sort the inbox so the emails with attachments are all at the top (Ideally sorted by date)

I am not:
  • Looking for a specific filename for the attachment
  • Meaning to search for specific text within any attachments
  • Looking for a solution where I have to use the 'Notes Designer' to create custom functionality - just in-built functionality

I need to send an email to an external email address with formatting. Unfortunately, the Bold and etc styling is removed and the received email is only text.

Any ideas how I can make the following send an email with the body containing a Font Size of 18 and is Bold?

	Dim session As NotesSession
	Dim dbCurrent As NotesDatabase
	Dim docMail As NotesDocument
	Dim rtBody As NotesRichTextItem
	Dim rtsMemoStyle As NotesRichTextStyle
	
	Set session = New NotesSession
	Set dbCurrent = session.currentDatabase	
	Set rtsMemoStyle = session.CreateRichTextStyle
	
	Set docMail = dbCurrent.CreateDocument
	docMail.Form = "Memo"
	docMail.Subject = "TEST"
	docMail.SendTo = "test@test.com"
	docMail.Body = ""
	Set rtBody = New NotesRichTextItem( docMail, "Body" )
	rtsMemoStyle.NotesFont = FONT_COURIER
	rtsMemoStyle.FontSize = 18
	rtsMemoStyle.Bold = True
	Call rtBody.AppendStyle( rtsMemoStyle )
	Call rtBody.AddNewLine( 16 )
	Call rtBody.AppendText( "TESTTESTTESTTESTTESTTEST" )
	Call rtBody.AddNewLine( 8 )
	Call rtBody.AppendText( "TESTTESTTESTTESTTEST" )
	Call rtBody.AddNewLine( 8 )
	Call rtBody.AppendText( "TESTTESTTESTTESTTESTTEST" )
	docMail.Send( False )

Hi Experts,
I am new to Lotus notes and the version used is 9.0. I need to check the source information of the email sent to a particular user in Domino administrator app. How can I get the information. I can ask the user to download the email and send it to me but the user is not available now and I need to get the information in the admin console. Your help is appreciated.
Regards
Sajith

I had this question after viewing Accidentally  deleted several users.

I have a problem, I have deleted the users out of Domino. Now I need to restore, I have restored their nsf file, but is there something I can do to restore the user back again or do I need to create a new user and somehow get them to access this .nsf file ?

what exactly is the difference between lotus notes/domino database move vs user move to another server
when should be it be used.
my agenda is to move a user from from 1 serverA to serverB so I can accumulate space on serverA.

and when deleting got a message
after a user move when trying to approve for mail file deletion,
 Both the signer and the author of this request must have Delete Document privileges in the Domino Directory.
I am a member of "local domain admins" in domino directory and this "local domain admins" group has delete document privileges on names.nsf

I have an Old version of Lotus SmartSuite with the product version of 4.1 and the installer product version of 7.0.9803.1301
I need to install this version of Lotus SmartSuite on a new Windows 10 Installation and have it open with a calendar that is stored on a network share.
When i install Lotus SmartSuite it installs fine however when i open it with the calendar it shows a blank screen like nothing has been added opened.

Is anyone familiar with this product that can speak about its correct configuration/use to show the calendar correctly?
Kind regards. and i thank you for your help in advance.

Hi experts,

I have a problem in removing the embedded object in my form

This is how I attached the file, then after, I open the document using the dialog box,
Dim tmpObject As NotesEmbeddedObject		
			Set tmpObject = field.EmbedObject(EMBED_ATTACHMENT,"", strFileName)
Call w.DialogBox("ScannedCheck", True,True,True,True,True,False,"Scanned Check",res,True, True)	' to display what was scanned

Open in new window


On the query save of the said document, i have this code
Dim obj As NotesEmbeddedObject
					Dim item As NotesRichTextItem
					Set item = doc.GetFirstItem("scannedCheck")		
					Forall o In item.EmbeddedObjects
						Call o.Remove
					End Forall 
					Call doc.Save(True, True)
					If doc.HasEmbedded Then
						Set item = survey.GetFirstItem("scannedCheck")
						While Not item Is Nothing
							Call item.Remove
							Set item = doc.GetFirstItem("scannedCheck")
						Wend
					End If

Open in new window


When I tried opening the document it errors out saying note item can't be found and the attachment or the icon is still visible on the rich text field. How to fix this?

Lets say you have the following REST Service.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xp:view xmlns:xp="http://www.ibm.com/xsp/core"
	xmlns:xe="http://www.ibm.com/xsp/coreex">
	
	(JSON) - View Column - Checkbook
	<xp:br></xp:br>
	<xe:restService id="restService1" pathInfo="GetViewCheckbook">
		<xe:this.service>
			<xe:viewJsonService viewName="VIEWCheckbook" systemColumns="0" defaultColumns="true" compact="true" count="1000"/>
			</xe:viewJsonService>
		</xe:this.service>
	</xe:restService>
</xp:view>

Open in new window


Am I able to access the user name of the logged in user who made the service call?

I have created an Xpage custom Rest Service to retrieve a JSON value field from a document.

I take that field value and add other JSON values to a string variable (strJSON).

How can I validate the string variable contains valid JSON?

I receive an error ("'JSON' not found") with the following regardless if the string contains valid JSON:
JSON.parse(strJSON)
