Protecting Your HTML Files

Use the following code to protect your HTML files from prying eyes. Instead of embedding your HTML files into Notes documents, create a form in Notes with a name (text) field and a body (rich text field). Put the name of the HTML file in the name field and paste the HTML code into the body field. If you have to make changes all you have to do is edit the Notes document. Create a view called HTML and have the first column sorted by name.

A call to a Web page would be something like:

This agent must be a shared agent that runs once.

Sub Initialize
Dim session As New NotesSession
Dim db As NotesDatabase
Dim view As NotesView
Dim doc As NotesDocument
Dim ctxDoc As NotesDocument
Dim tmpText As String
Dim tmpHtml As String
Dim positionOfChar As Long

Set ctxDoc = session.DocumentContext
tmpText = ctxDoc.Query_String(0)
posOfChar& = Instr(1, tmpText$, "&")
tmpHtml = Mid$(tmpText,posOfChar& + 1)

Set db = session.CurrentDatabase
Set view = db.getView("html")
Set doc = view.getDocumentByKey(tmpHtml)
Set rtitem = doc.GetFirstItem( "Body" )
htmlText = rtitem.GetFormattedText( False, 0 )

Print htmlText

End Sub
