Hi there,

How do I create a button in Notes Client so that when user click on it, it will compose a memo, and send to myself?

This button work as a Feedback button for me.

Hope to hear from U =)


RE: Create button

Hi Pio,

I think, you should open your mail DB in the Designer and in the Folder "Inbox" you create a new action
the formula should be:

maybe you look at hide when clauses that's all



RE: Create button

Oups I forgot ;)

You have to change the mail db of all users ;)

maybe it's better to compose a new form "Feedback" where the submitto field is set to your mail adress



RE: Create button

Hi Stephan,

I managed to have the button create new memo, but how can I set the To: field to have my email address?

Pls advise me on the coding...

Thanks for your help :)


RE: Create button


open the form Memo
select all (within the document)
copy to clipboard
create new form (eg Feedback)
now search the field SendTo
double click it
change from editable to computed when compose
down in the programmers pane enter "[your email]"
now the fiel isn't anymore editable and the right name stands in it.
aftr this you have to create the Send button but I don't really know which commands to enter for it - have a look at notes help i suppose
and the action button you've just created should no be changed to

That should work



RE: Create button

Try this out:

SendTo:="Your e-mail address here";
BodyText:="Your message body text here";
@Command([Compose]; @MailDbName; "Memo");
@Command([EditInsertText]; SendTo);
@Command([EditGotoField]; "Subject");
@Command([EditInsertText]; "Comments/Feedback");
@Command([EditGotoField]; "Body");
@Command([EditInsertText]; BodyText)

This will compose a new memo in the sender mail DB and fillin the text you place in the formula. All the user needs to do is click send.

Hope this helps
