View formulas

How do you use form formula in views. In my situation, I need to display one form for composing and another form for displaying. If we use this formula, it doesn't work: @If(@Isnewdoc;FormA;FormB)
You are using the formula language correctly. However, your logic is the culprit here. @IsNewDoc will never be true from a view. This is because once the document has been saved it is no longer a new document and since you cannot see a document in a view until it has been saved, you cannot have a true condition for this function.

You can, however, use @IsNewDoc for a computed sub form -- displaying one subform when it is created and another when it is being viewed.
