Developer's Tip: Framesets in R5

Today's Developer tip comes from our own SearchDomino community. Jay Herman, an IT manager for the Electrohydraulics Business Unit of Sauer-Sundstrand, has been involved with Notes implementation planning, development, administration since 1996.


When I started developing in R5, I quickly adopted framesets, outlines, and pages to provide a UI for my apps similar to the R5 Mail template. However, if I created a view link and used it, the view opened without the frameset (resulting in the default view/folder list on the left instead of my nice outline). There seemed to be other cases where this would happen too. (I'm assuming you will have already set the launch property for the database to "Open designated frameset".)


I discovered that in order to have the frameset open when you open a view from a link, the target frame for the view must be named "NotesView". Once I assigned that name to the frame, links to views opened the views in the desired frameset.
