Getting Size Of Full Text Search Index

This function retrieves the size of a FTS index for a database. By passing the
function a NotesDatabase object, it wil return the size of the index in bytes.

For example, if you wanted to display the size of the FTS index for the current
database, in a format consistent with the value in File - Database -
Properties, you can use this button code:

Sub Click(Source As Button)
Dim s As New NotesSession
Dim fts&, adj&


If fts& > 0 Then
' convert number to format displayed in File - Database - Properties
adj&=Fix(fts& / 1024)

If adj& > 999 Then
Msgbox "Full text size: " & Fix(adj& / 1000) & " MB", 0, "FTS Size
Msgbox "Full text size: " & adj& & " KB", 0, "FTS Size Sample"
End If
Msgbox "This database has no FTS index", 48, "FTS Size Sample"
End If
End Sub
' (Declarations)
Declare Sub OSPathNetConstruct Lib "nnotes" (Byval portName As String, Byval
ServerName As String, Byval FileName As String, Byval retPathName As String)
Declare Function NSFDbFTSizeGet Lib "nnotes" (Byval Filename As String, FTSize

Function GetFTSize(db As NotesDatabase) As Long
Dim path$
Dim fts&


' create an API-friendly path
OSPathNetConstruct "", db.Server, db.FilePath, path$
