I'm a trainee of "IT-Engineer, specialized in application development". I have to design Lotus Notes Databases. Now I have to design an Information Portal for the Web with Lotus Domino.
My question is:
I want to make a dynamic Menu. That means, if a user want to rename a menu-title or create a new one.
The mechanism should be dynamic. My problem is, I don't know how to design this application.
There are several ways you could do this. 1) Create a Form and use computed for display fields, or computed text that computes your menu items. For example, you could look up the items and then wrap them in the appropriate HTML to make them appear as links. 2) you could write a LotusScript or Java agent that dynamically generates the menu page, and the links it contains based on any criteria you define. The latter approach lends the greatest flexibility, and I have used it quite often to build a menu based on values looked up from a database and maintained by non-developers.
