UserRoles in LotusScript to control rights

In a Navigator, it is not possible to hide an option if the user does have rights to access based on the user roles. It is therefore good to control the execution of this option with the underlying LotusScript.

Code: Sub Click(Source As Button)

Dim URoles As Variant
URole = Evaluate("@UserRoles")
MyRole = ""
Forall ur In URole
  If ur = "[DbAdmin]" Then
     MyRole = "DbAdmin"
     Goto NextStep
  End If
End Forall

If MyRoles = "DbAdmin" Then
  Put your codes here....
  Msgbox "You are not authorised to access this option.", 64, "Not Authorised"
End If
End Sub
