Force Use Of Edit Button

Here's a way to force the user to edit a document using an edit button, rather
than from the menu, so that you can do some other processing from the button.
In (declarations) create a global variable for the form:

Dim buttonClickedFlag as Integer

In QueryOpen, you'd want the flag to default to false:

Sub Queryopen(Source As Notesuidocument, Mode As Integer, Isnewdoc As Variant,
Continue As Variant)
buttonClickedFlag = False
End Sub

In the button code, set the flag to true, along with whatever else you want to

Sub Click(Source As Button)
Dim workspace As New NotesUIWorkspace
buttonClickedFlag = True
Call workspace.EditDocument(True)
End Sub

In QueryModeChange,

Sub Querymodechange(Source As Notesuidocument, Continue As Variant)
If Not ( source.EditMode ) And buttonClickedFlag = False Then
Messagebox("Please use the Edit button to modify this form.")
continue = False
End If
End Sub
