Scripting For Both Notes & Web

A lot of my applications have to work for both Notes and the Web. So instead
of writing script in both the Form "PostOpen" event and in an agent for the
WebQueryOpen event, I put all my code into a script library and just pass the
document handle when I call the script. It also allows me to create a Notes
Form which will break my HTML into sections with other related field (not use
by the Web) making it easier to locate problems.
This example is based on the "$$NavigatorTemplateDefault" form.

In the WebQueryOpen event of the form enter:

@Command([ToolsRunMacro]; "agwqoHmPgNavigator")

Where "agwqoHmPgNavigator" is the name of the agent I need to call from the Web.

In the Options event enter:

Option Explicit
Use "gwHmPgStyle2Scripts"

Where "gwHmPgStyle2Scripts" is the name of the ScriptLibary

In the PostOpen event enter:

Sub Postopen(Source As Notesuidocument)

Dim ndCurrentDoc As notesdocument
Set ndCurrentDoc = Source.Document

'This subroutine will generate the HTML for the HomePage
Call wqoHmPgDefaultNavigator( ndCurrentDoc )

End Sub

Create an Agent call "agwqoHmPgNavigator".

In the Options event enter:

Option Public
Use "gwHmPgStyle2Scripts"

Where "gwHmPgStyle2Scripts" is the name of the ScriptLibary

In the Initialize event enter:

Sub Initialize
Dim ns As New notessession
Dim ndb As notesdatabase
Dim ndCurrent As notesdocument

Set ndb = ns.Currentdatabase
Set ndCurrent = ns.DocumentContext

'This subroutine will generate the HTML for the HomePage
Call wqoHmPgDefaultNavigator( ndCurrent )

End Sub

Finally create you ScriptLibary "gwHmPgStyle2Scripts" and you Subroutine.

Sub wqoHmPgDefaultNavigator ( ndNavDoc As notesdocument )
.
.
.
End Sub
