Hi guys,

We would like to be able to change the size of a fields font on a form based on a setting on another field that we set.

To begin with I'm just trying to see if I can change the size of a fields font when the form opens. By 'default', the size and font of the field is set to Arial 11. I have placed some code in 'PostOpen' of the form which tries to set the font to courier and the size to 14. When the form opens however, it is still set to Arial 11. A sample of the script I am using is shown below in the first part of the script. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Sub Postopen(Source As Notesuidocument)
Dim session As New notessession
Dim docstatus As String
Dim user1 As String
Dim user2 As String
Dim allowedit As String
Dim doc As NotesDocument
Dim richstyle As NotesRichTextStyle

Set doc = Source.Document
Set richstyle = session.CreateRichTextStyle
richstyle.NotesFont = FONT_COURIER
richstyle.FontSize = 14

Dim richtext As New NotesRichTextItem(doc, "IssuesAndComments")
Call richtext.AppendStyle(richstyle)

If Source.IsNewDoc Then
Call source.FieldSetText( "DocStatus", "Locked" )
Call source.FieldSetText("Currentuser", session.commonusername)
update = True
Exit Sub
End If

allowedit = Source.FieldGetText("AllowEdit")
If allowedit = "False" Then
Source.EditMode = False
update = False
Exit Sub
End If

'don't let any one make changes if a newer version of this document exists.
saveOption = source.FieldGetText("SaveOptions")
If saveOption = "0" Then
source.EditMode = False
Exit Sub
End If

user1 = session.commonusername
user2 = Source.FieldGetText("Currentuser")
docstatus = Source.FieldGetText("DocStatus")

If source.EditMode And docstatus = "Open" Then

Call source.FieldSetText( "DocStatus", "Locked" )
Call source.FieldSetText("Currentuser", user1)
update = True
Call source.refresh
End If

If source.EditMode And docstatus = "Locked" And user1 = user2 Then
Source.EditMode = False
update = False
Call Source.Close
Msgbox "This document is already open in another window"
End If

End Sub
