Hi All, I need to modify Notes such a way that user is able to tag the individual mail in his folders/view with some identifier. So to achieve this, I have created custom form where it contains text input and one button that does the whole. I have modified the "Interrion MailFS" frameset so that custom form is displayed just below the preview frame.  Now my issue is I am not able to access the selected document in Inbox(any other folder/view) when I click on button.  to get the selected document i use  Dim oNotesUIWokSpace As NotesUIWorkspace Set oNotesUIWokSpace = New NotesUIWorkspace  oNotesUIWokSpace.CurrentDocument, which gives me blank document. Also oNotesUIWokSpace.CurrentView is nothing in this case.  I am just speculating, but is this behaviour is beacuse Custom form and Folder/View are in different Frames? Can I get any suggestion on this?  TIA

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

Yep you’re right.

CurrentDocument on NotesUIWorkSpace will give you the open document on the screen but not if you are in an other frame.

I suggest that you work in the Inbox view/folder with a DialogBox called by an action button. Your custom form would be then display in your dialogBox.

From the Inbox view/folder, you could know wich documents are selected with the Documents method of NotesUIView class

set uiview = NotesUIWorkSpace.CurrenView
set docCollection = uiview.Documents

Then you could iterate in all the documents in the collection in order to add your tag field with what was inputed in your DialogBox

Whay do you think ? Hope you’ll understand, sorry for my poor english 🙁

    Hi there How about adding the following lines to your code. I don't know if you're tried it but it is worth a try Call oNotesUIWokSpace.SetTargetFrame( "TheNameOfFrameToSetFocus" )
