I would like to create cutom Toolbar buttons for Lotus Notes that perform Lotus Script Actions. So it would be great if I could just write a quick formula to perform any action or more than one action in sequence. I dont want to have to change the template or create any agents Thanks

    What is your background? Have you taken a Notes development course? There are many ways to create custom actions in Notes, view actions, form actions, right-click actions, actions that call agents, actions that have all the code within them, actions that call lotusscript libraries, shared actions that can be created once, then added to views, forms, etc. The actions can run Notes @Formula or LotusScript, or run Simple Commands, Java, JavaScript... Where do you waht to begin? What do you want an action to do and where do you want its button to appear?

    Im a Lotus Notes administrator with a small amount of designer knowledge. I can already create Action buttons and right-click actions, but we have a standard R7 or R8 templates that everyone uses, that I don't want to modify or create agents. I would like to create a customized Toolbar buttons that call actions, that way we can just give clients different toolbar buttons depending on their work needs. When adding new toolbar buttons it asks for commands and formulas (File>Preferences>Toolbar>Customize, click New>Button in Lotus Notes 8). There doesn't seem to be any way to add LotusScript to these buttons. So it would be good if there was a standard Run Action command that could be written in this formula box Thanks

    Hi But why dont you want to use "Agent" ? With agent, you could build what ever you want, even in Lotus Script ! So, in the toolbar, you should use an @COMMAND( [ToolsRunMacro] ; "MyAgent" ) You may also use a special database called "Agent Installer" from Chuck Connell (see at http://www.chc-3.com or http://www.dominosecurity.org) , where you can create all the agents you need in order to be installed by the client.... (it push the agent to the mail box, and do not change the guenine design) I can give you this database if it is no more available on the web...
