Lotus Domino 7 isnewdoc or is newnote help needed!

I am working on setting a default value for a feild in a view I have completed the web side of things but I was instructed to go into the postopen form and write something like if isnewdoc then default the daysopen field to a value of "1". this is what i tried and it didn't work any advice on how to do this.

 If uidoc.IsNewdoc Then Set doc = uidoc.Document Call doc.ReplaceItemValue("daysopen","1")

Call doc.Save(True, False) Set doc = view.GetNextDocument(doc)

End If

 How I could use postopen and put code in there so that "daysopen" would get a default value of 1. I originally did an if statement with @today in the field but that made it run far to slow. So I wrote an agent and now it runs faster it just doesn’t get the first day "1" because the agent only runs once a day so until it runs it is blank. I need a code that would set the default in the client postopen that so it doesn't slow it down. Any Ideas?

Please help me fix this.

PS. I am using a form for this and need to write code into the postopen form to get the default vavle

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

In the field, find the default value property. Set it to 1. Or “1”, depending on whether you want a numeric or text value. Don’t use a form queryopen or any other lotusscript event. the field itself is programmable.

    Brooklynegg is right, set the default value to the field... But if you want absolutely set it in postopen, try :
    if source.IsNewDoc then
        if source.editMode then
            call source.FieldSetText( "daysopen", "1")
        end if
    end if

    BruceWayne: the poster, AMcAuley3, says he has "...completed the web side of things...". It sounds like he is developing something for a browser, not the Notes client. Would the lotusscript postopen event evaluate from the web? I don't remember ever using a postopen for a web app. I don't have time to test it now. If he really wants to use script, I think he could write an agent, then call it in the webqueryopen. What do you think?

    Mmmm :- You're right again Brooklynegg ! Postopen doesn't trigger in web. But webqueryopen will do the trick. Sorry, I did not see the "Web Side Of Things" ...
