Avoid closing Notes client

Editor's Note: This feature will reportedly be included in ND7.

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.

Const MB_YESNO= 4
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_DEFBUTTON2,"Close Notes")
 If yesno = IDYES Then continue = True
  Else continue = False
End Sub
