Remove unnecessary bookmark icons

This shows you how to remove unnecessary bookmark icons.

View member feedback to this tip.

When we open a new database, an icon is placed on the workspace and the bookmark list. When you remove the icon from the workspace, the icon on the bookmark list is still there.

Using the code below to a button, the bookmark list opens and you can see all of the icons there. All you have to do is press and hold Shift while clicking the first icon. This will force the hidden column to appear. Now you can select the icons you want to remove and mark them for deletion. Make sure you press F9 to remove the selected icons.

 Dim workspace As 
New NotesUIWorkspace 
Call workspace.OpenDatabase 
( "","bookmark.nsf", "All Bookmarks" )


You can access that views using the Shift -> Control Right click access (lets you open any view in the database) with out code.

From the workspace, select the bookmarks icon and press Shift -> Control and right click on the bookmarks icon. On the menu that comes up, select Database then Goto… In the list of views select (AllBookmarks) and you have the view.
