Making named element links work with external database in frameset

Have you ever tried to create a Notes frameset portal bringing several different Notes databases together that are related?

Have you ever tried to create a Notes frameset portal bringing several different Notes databases together that are related?

Did you have hotspots (or outlines) open a different database in a different frame in the Notes client using "Named Elements"?

I was getting an error with the database not being found on the server, which was absurd when it clearly existed.

The reason it couldn't find the database in question is becasue it appears that "named element" links use the workspace in some fashion to find the databases, so the script simply adds the required databases to the users workspace, and must therefore be run before they have the option to open the database in your frameset.


Sub Postopen(Source As Notesuidatabase)
 On Error Resume Next 'to handle unauthorised users, though error still pops up...
 Dim workspace As New NotesUIWorkspace
 Call workspace.AddDatabase("ServerA", "IntranetDB_One.nsf")
 Call workspace.AddDatabase("ServerA", "IntranetDB_Two.nsf")
 Call workspace.AddDatabase("ServerB", "GroupDB_Three.nsf")
 Call workspace.AddDatabase("ServerA", "IntranetDB_Four.nsf")
End Sub
