RE: Run Agent from Javascript
Willy Lorenzo 24.Oct.07 05:41 PM Lotus Notes
Domino Designer 6.5.5 All Platforms



First of all, the whole idea of having the JavaScript is to supply a method to interface with users. The opening poster’s primary need was to send a message to the user. If you get rid of the JavaScript portions then you can’t present, for example, a prompt offering choices and then act on those choices. The JavaScript in the onload event is used to communicate messages back to the user after the agent finishes running and to initiate additional processes that might be required. One framework does it all.

You certainly do need ToolsRunMacro. Using WebQuerySave is too limiting because it only runs when you submit for save. If you create a button that executes ToolsRunMacro, then you can execute an agent at any time you want just by clicking the button. WebQuerySave does not run every time you click a formula button on a form. The onload, however, does run when any formula button completes processing.

I just built a web interface to an existing db that doesn’t open any document at all. The form that’s presented to the user is used to gather information. Upon clicking a button an agent retrieves and updates the real document (as well as creating other documents, as per the requirements of this particular process.) So in this particular case the WebQuerySave never executes because I never actually submit the form, so it couldn’t have been used.
