Show single category view, the next stage

This tip describes how to show a single category view.

If you want to allow a user to pick a single category view on the web, this is by far the easiest way to do it, with finesse.

Define a $$viewtemplate form and embed the view to use. On the web you can use graphics either within the form or outsdie of it in another frame. Use the Domino URL parameter:"openview&RestrictToCategory = " with whatever category you want the link to show. That will pull the view up using the view template form so it's pretty. To finesse it, put the javascript that follows in the header. This code pulls the Location from the browser and strips out the category to show the user what category thety are looking at. For an example, hit and click 'shop online' and then choose 'by publisher'.

Hope this helps somebody.

p.s. no purchase necessary :)

 <script language = "JavaScript">
var qs=window.location.href;
var breakhere=qs.indexOf("&RestrictToCategory=")+20;
var mystring=qs.substring(breakhere, qs.length);
var break2=mystring.indexOf("#")
if (break2<1)
var mystring2=mystring.substring(0,break2)
var addurl=mystring2.charAt(0)+" to "+mystring2.charAt(mystring2.length-1);
document.writeln("<B><FONT SIZE=2 COLOR='FF0000' FACE='Arial'>"+addurl+"</font></b>");
// -->
