Sometimes it can be helpful to control the Notes client if a user really wants to close it. To do this you can easily change the Queryclose event in the Bookmark.nsf database or you can change your own homepage on the Queryclose event (normally you should choose the Main page to do this). The script is very short.
'Declaration Const MB_YESNO= 4 Const MB_ICONQUESTION = 32 Const MB_DEFBUTTON2 = 256 Const IDYES = 6 Const IDNO = 7 Sub Queryclose(Source As Notesuidocument, Continue As Variant) yesno = Messagebox ("Do you really want exit ?", MB_YESNO+MB_ICONQUESTION+ MB_DEFBUTTON2,"Close Notes") If yesno = IDYES Then continue = True Else continue = False End Sub
