I am looking for some code samples that would enable me (in ASP or Visual Basic) to programmatically place an event in someone's Lotus Notes calendar. For example, an intranet site has a calendar on the home page - we want to have a link that says "Add this event to your Notes Calendar". Has anyone done this using the com library or the C API in Notes ?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

To be able to do this you will need to have the following info:

Users name
Domino Server Name where mail file resides
mail file name on the OS.

Whith that info all you do is create a calendar document in the mail file with all the necessary fields populated. You can read the IBM RedBook COM Together for help on the COM interface and accessing the database. There are a few examples that you can download with the RedBook. Here is hte URL to download the PDF version of the book and if you click on the link called Aditional Material to download the samples.

Hope this helps

    The problem with this approach is that the web server would also require access to the Notes id file that was going to update the mail files together with the corresponding password. If you could use Domino (perhaps in an IFRAME within your ASP home page) then a signed agent could update the mail file. If you have already authenticated into IIS on the intranet then this NT user could also automatically authenticate with Domino without requiring your Domino password.
