Best Practice Makes Perfect

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

I always thought this property would tell the note collection to select all views (excluding desktop private and those to which the user has no access). Not so; it selects all views that are not hidden from the Notes client.

I have a fix for this which may or may not get into 8.5.2, but meanwhile I thought I should let people know, since it came as a surprise to me and I suspect many of you may have code that uses this property and don't realize that you're not locating all the view design elements in apps you're scanning.

The workaround is as follows:

ncoll.Selectallindexelements True
ncoll.Selectionformula =
|!@Matches($Flags; "*{FG^}*")|

The same bug exists in Java (by and large you can assume this as the APIs share a lot of code, except for the XML parsers).

Navigators are also affected; to find all navigators you should write:

ncoll.Selectallindexelements True
ncoll.Selectionformula =
|@Matches($Flags; "*G*")|

The other "select" properties seem to work OK.
