Button To Select Mail Templates

If you are using @Picklist to choose a document, then the OpenView command to
open the view and finally the OpenDocument command to open the document you
might have noticed, the view will still be open after the User closed the
selected document.
This is sloppy - they should return to the place where they opened the Picklist.

I've used this script for selecting Mail Templates with one Click.

Create View named : (MemoTemplates)
1st Column sorted ascending - Field: MAILSTATIONERYNAME
2nd Column: Value: @Text(@DocumentUniqueID)

Create View named : (ByDocID)
1st Column sorted ascending - Value: @Text(@DocumentUniqueID)

Create Action in Inbox Folder:
DraftDocID:=@PickList( [Custom] :[Single] ; "" ; "(MemoTemplates)" ; "Select
Mail template" ;_
"Please select the Mail Template you want to use:" ; 2);
@Environment ("DOC";DraftDocID);
@Command([ToolsRunMacro]; "Templates");

Create Agent:
Sub Initialize
Dim sess As New NotesSession
Dim db As NotesDatabase
Dim doc As NotesDocument
Dim dcto As String
Set db = sess.Currentdatabase

dcto = sess.GetEnvironmentString("DOC")

If dcto = "" Then
Msgbox("No Template selected")
Exit Sub
End If
Call sess.SetEnvironmentVar("DOC", "")

Set doc = db.GetDocumentByUNID(dcto)
If doc Is Nothing Then
Msgbox ("ERROR: Template not found!")
Exit Sub
End If
displaydocument doc

End Sub

Function DisplayDocument (doc As NotesDocument) As Integer
Dim ws As New NotesUIWorkspace
Dim db As NotesDatabase
Dim vista As NotesView
Dim vistadoc As NotesDocument
Dim uidoc As Notesuidocument

Set db = doc.ParentDatabase
Set vista = db.getview ("(ByDocID)")
Set vistadoc = db.GetDocumentByUnID (doc.UniversalID)
Set uidoc = ws.EditDocument(True,vistadoc,False)
End Function
