Ability to use LotusScript to use / operate FullText Search in the Notes Client.

Can be simple: NotesUIView.FTSearch ("my search string" , maxDocs)
.. to complex : new NotesUIFTSearch which would be a new object allowing to operate all FT options available in the UI (search by form, how results are sorted,...)



Users are not aware how powerful the FT search is.
They simply type a few words.
But some applications could operate this by creating advanced search query (i.e. Including field name scope [Filed]=xxx, date ranges,...) based on simple questions asked to user in custom-application dialog box for instance.

    Have you seen NotesView.FTSearchSorted?  This allows you set a number of the search options like how the results are sorted or whether fuzzy search is used etc.

    Does this support what you want to do?

    I believe the request is for more options on the existing FTSearch method of the (Note)View object.  Not a bad idea, but also we are going to encompass FTSearch capability within DQL so stay tuned for that.
