Want To Know How Much Childrens Your Document Have?

This code is pretty helpfull to know how much childrens does your principal
document have.

First, create as much fields in your principal form as you got different
children's form. In my example, I've got one principal form named "Principal"
and two children's form named "Child1" and "Child2". So, I've create two
calculated fields name "NumOfChild1" and "NumOfChild2".

Next step. In your principal form you will have to copy the code in the
"Postmodechange" event. With this event you will be sure that unauthorised
peoples won't upgrade your principal documents. Each time a user will modify
his principal document, the code will verify, compare and upgrade the number of
childrens in the document.
Sub Postmodechange(Source As Notesuidocument)
Dim Session As New NotesSession
Dim Doc As NotesDocument
Dim Coll As NotesDocumentCollection

With Source.Document
Set Coll = .Responses
'verify if the fields are empty
If .NumOfChild1 (0) <> "" Then Tot# = .NumOfChild1 (0)
If .NumOfChild2 (0) <> "" Then Tot# = Tot# + .NumOfChild2 (0)
End With

'if the count is the same, it's not necessary to upgrade it
If Tot# = Coll.Count Then Exit Sub

Set Doc = Coll.GetFirstDocument
Do While Not (Doc Is Nothing)
If Doc.Form (0) = "Child1" Then
Child1% = Child1% + 1
Child2% = Child2% + 1
End If
Set Doc = Coll.GetNextDocument (Doc)

With Source.Document
.NumOfChild1 = Child1%
.NumOfChild2 = Child2%
End With

Call Source.Refresh
End Sub
