SmartIcon code to display any open database's ReplicaID

I wrote this smarticon code to display the open database's title, server name, then perform a lookup based on that info to the server's catalog.nsf database to find and display the ReplicaID enclosed in quotes provided the database is/has been "cataloged" otherwise it will simply error by default with "File Does Not Exist."


 tmpKEY_DBTITLE:=@DbTitle;
@Prompt([OK];"Info";tmpKEY_DBTITLE);
tmpserver := @Name([Abbreviate]; 
@Subset(@DbName; 1));
@Prompt([OK];"Info";tmpserver);
tmpDBREPLICAID := @DbLookup( "" : "
NoCache" ;tmpserver :"catalog.nsf";
"DatabasesBy Title";tmpKEY_DBTITLE ; 3 );
tmpReformatID :="""+tmpDBREPLICAID+""";
@Prompt([OKCANCELEDIT]; "Copy ReplicaID 
and paste where needed"; "Replica ID for "
+tmpKEY_DBTITLE+" is "; """+tmpDBREPLICAID+""")
