Best Practice Makes Perfect

A collaboration with Domino developers about how to do it and how to get it right in Domino

I just published a Domino Designer Wiki entry on troubleshooting @DbLookup (and other lookup operations). Though it's been reviewed by a couple of people internally, I probably made some mistakes or left out some things that might cause a lookup to fail. See if you can catch my errors -- please post a comment in response to the Wiki document if you find anything.

(Or you could just edit the entry, I suppose. Earlier I was concerned that using the web rich text gadget on these would mess them up, but editing it with a Notes client doesn't really seem to be much better. I really have to talk to those people about that.)

See the Wiki page. I started to just Edit it, but the screen that came up had a blank editor, instead of all the previous article being in there. That made me nervous. :-)

Great article! Loved that you included information on XPage usage.

It was interesting to see the expression @DbName[1]. I don't think I've seen something written like this before in conjunction with @DbName.

One suggestion for the article, in the performance section, might be to add a little parargraph about not doing lookups in a form for Read Mode.
