Support for Notes URL parameters

Today Notes URLs can be used to open forms and compose new documents.

 

For example, this URL composes a new person document in the local address book:

Notes:///names.nsf/person?openform

 

It would be great to get support for URL arguments (on all Notes Client platforms and via the address bar), so that fields in the new document can get populated (text fields would be enough):

 

Notes:///names.nsf/person?openform&lastname=Lehmann&firstname=Karsten

 

This would be a great enhancement for the Domino mobile app.

We could add code in the form's QueryOpen/PostOpen methods to read these parameters and run application code, e.g. to do further data lookups, close the form, open a frameset to display the lookup result etc.

    Not sure I understand. Using and @ function, you can read those parameters now, and use them as defaults for your fields. I must be missing something here.

    Dear guest: yes you miss something. The use case Karsten has in mind covers situations where you don’t own the form or can’t touch it. In these situations you can’t alter your @Formula. Also it makes things simpler since you don’t need to add @if conditions to check if there is a parameter and otherwise use a default. Makes sense in integration scenarios

    I don't think that you can do this today with a Notes URL in the Notes Client, but maybe I am missing something.

     

    I just created a new form with computed text.

     

    Tried the following as formula:

     

    All returned no result when I opened the form with this URL in the Notes Client's address bar:

     

    notes:///test/urlargtest.nsf/person?openform&lastname=Lehmann

    I misinterpreted. You want the CGI variables and @URLQueryString to work in the Notes Client as well as on the web.

    Fair question. I’ll promote it.
