One common issue in Lotus Notes 8.x is that the PostOpen event does not work properly. When a Dialog box is launched in the PostOpen event, it opens first and the Notes document remains closed until the user closes the Dialog box.
The view from which the user opens the document displays in the background of the Dialog box, instead of appearing in the actual document. This was not a problem in Lotus Notes 6.5x or earlier and IBM offers no workaround for this.
In this example, you should also create a hidden button called pushButton and place the Dialog box launch code in it.
