Open frameset based on Notes version

In the Notes Client, have you ever wanted to open a different frameset based on what version of the Notes client is running? You can open a frameset based on a formula value in the frame properties type and value with no problems. But the @Version provides a build number, not a 5.0.3 or 5.0.#. Script gives the whole Version 5.0.3 March... but cannot be put in the Frame properties. To get around this, have the single framed frameset (create a framset and delete one frame) open a page. The page can then be used to run the script. The code below shows looking for "Release 5.0.3" explicitly. The final statement, source.close, closes the frameset used to open the desired frameset so only that one remains. The launch properties can then be set to open to the single framed frameset!
Sub Postopen(Source As Notesuidocument)
 Dim strNotesVersion As String
 Dim session As notessession
 Dim ws As notesuiworkspace
 Set session = New notessession
 Set ws = New notesuiworkspace
 strNotesVersion = session.NotesVersion
 strNotesVersion = Left(strNotesVersion,Instr(strNotesVersion,"|") - 1)
 strNotesVersion = Trim(strNotesVersion)
 If strNotesVersion = "Release 5.0.3" Then
  Call ws.OpenFrameSet("mainframeset")
  Call ws.OpenFrameSet("mainframeset2")
 End If
End Sub
