This tip shows you how to activate the view property "Do not display empty categories" without using Domino Designer. A view with that property has a Field called $Index containing "/C". So we have to set the value of this Field to "/C" for each view we want not to display empty categories. This is particularly useful when using a database residing on Domino R5 and over, and accessed by R4.X clients. You can modify this tip and use the same method to change other properties of a view. Beware, changing some special Fields will cause unpredictable behavior! ($Formula ...)
Option Public Dim S As NotesSession Dim db As NotesDatabase Dim col As Variant Sub Initialize Dim i As Integer Dim it As NotesItem Dim v As NotesView Set S = New NotesSession Set db = S.CurrentDatabase Col = db.Views For i = Lbound(Col) To Ubound(Col) Dim doc As NotesDocument Set V = Col (i) ' A notes document representing the view Set Doc = db.Getdocumentbyunid(V.Universalid) ' Do not change private views If V.Aliases(0) <> "V_Private" Then Doc.~$Index = "/C" Call Doc.save(True, True) Next End Sub
