Here is part 3 of Maureen Leland's answers to your questions from's recent Lotus Live! Series webcast with IBM/Lotus' Maureen Leland on Domino Designer 6.

Can ND6 now handle the preview pane in views within a frameset?

Leland: If you mean the state of the preview pane, then the answer is yes. We save off your frameset settings in bookmark cache and restore it when you get back in. So if the preview pane was open, it will be open the next time you re-open the DB.

Can you have text in a column be black, for instance, and then the color of the same column for that document be a different color, like red?

Leland: I'm not exactly sure what the question is asking in this case. But if I am guessing it right, in the Inbox all the text by default is black, which means all the columns are set to display text in black. Yet, you can add color coding and change the text color to red.

What happens if a view is refreshed or replaced after it is customized by a user?

Leland: You lose the customization. We store the customizations in bookmark cache. When the view definition changes, we throw away your customizations and reread the new definition.

Does the Java view applet show both the horizontal and vertical scroll bars?

Leland: Yes, it should.

Is there a way to programmatically label a tabbed table similar to the way section headings are now, via formula or field content?

Leland: Yes, in 6 you can label a tabbed table using the RichTextTable class in LotusScript.

In Domino Designer 6, can you display text fields as being more than one row high, the way you can with Rich Text fields (ROWS=5 COLS=40)?

Leland: Unless I misunderstand the question, no, you cannot.

On tables, can you select multiple cells and specify the class for all of them (CSS)?

Leland: Good suggestion, we will investigate. At this time, however, the new cell class is applied only to the most recently selected cell.

Can you hide the grand total in a view if some of the documents are hidden by readers field?

Leland: No, you cannot.
