Welcome to the #dominoforever Product Ideas Lab! The place where you can submit product ideas and enhancement request. We encourage you to participate by voting on, commenting on, and creating new ideas. All new ideas will be evaluated jointly by the IBM & HCL Product Management & Engineering teams, and the next steps will be communicated. While not all submitted ideas will be executed upon, community feedback will play a key role in influencing which ideas are and when they will be implemented.

For more information and upcoming events around #dominoforever, please visit our Destination Domino page.

New LS method "notesView.GetCategoryEntryByKey"

Set notesViewEntry = notesView.GetCategoryEntryByKey( key [, exactMatch% ] )


This would give the great benefit, to access the total columns of a view category row (a ViewEntry with IsCategory = True).



Think about a view, with categories and documents below, with numbers to be summed up.

The total value of all documents below a category can be read within the category ViewEntry.

This value already exists within the view index - nothing needs to be summed up or calculated - the result is already there.

But unfortunately we have no LS command to get it!
