Hi I am using embeded view in Lotus Notes. I am calling embeded view which is view of other database. When I call it , it displays all column. But how can I can select the view based on field which resides in the form? Regards

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

I am not really sure but i think it is not possible, dynamicly speaking.
Because the view is embeded when you create or design your form.

I have seen somewhere that you can do something like that with DXL (Domino XML)…
You have first to export your structure, then change the XML file like you want it to be and then import your new stucture in your application. Huuu, not so easy :-(

Hope a DXL guru in this site could find you an answer !

    I use a tabbed table to embed two views and use a hide formulea to chose which tab to display based on the value of a field on the form.

    HI, i thing I explained my question in wrong way. My question is:- I have field 1 which is text field in form.( This value is populated by other functions) I have also emebeded view in this form. This view is selected based on "Field1" value. Now problem occurs if I have two values selected in "Field1" . It can only show me recent one in embeded view. I want to display both in this view Can anyone help me on this. I try to make "Field1" as list type but that does not give me all values in embeded view.

    In my opinion, this cannot be done. You cannot have an embedded view show two views. You also can't make an embedded view show document from two different categories, so that wouldn't be an option either. Why not show two embedded views? Here's an idea: Instead of embedding a view, embed a folder. When the form opens with a value in Field1, have a script run to collect all documents that match whatever criteria populates the original view and put them in the folder. If the value in field1 changes, have the script run again and empty the folder, then populate it with documents that match the criteria. I think that would get what you want. The folder would have to be private on first use.

    Thanks for the answer. I would try to use folder pane method for utilising this. Still the issue resides having two values of field 1 seprated by comma. As you mentioned, Folder pane will be emptied when Field1 is changed. Can I retain the old value and add new value to this folder pane property. I will try first and hope this can be solved. In the meantime, if you have any other idea, please feel free to discuss. I really appreciate your help. Regards

    I would expect you will want to make the code add records that match the new value in Field1 when they change, rather than remove and re-add everything. I made the comment about emptying the folder when the form is closed and populating it when the form opens to that attention would be given to making sure the user sees up-to-date information in the embedded view (in this case, the folder).
