The power of evaluate

This tip describes using the evaluate function.

I find interesting that most new Notes programmers could use a crash course in @formulas. For the most part they underestimate the power of @formulas and how easy it is to integrate in LS code. The Evaluate function when combined with the appropriate @formula could save you tons of time. As an example, here is a piece of code that allows me to redirect user when an agent is executed:

'-- this sample code redirects a user to a thank you page. After the agent has been executed. The Evaluate function, replaces the / to and the spaces to "+"

Dim strDBName as string
Dim varDBName as string
"//":" ";"":"+")})
Print "[/"+strDBName+"/pgthankyou?openpage]"
