Format a Users Name

Format a User s Name

Several properties are associated the NotesName class that enable you to return different versions of a user's Lotus Notes name. Several of the more common properties include the Common, Abbreviated and Canonical formats.

How It Works

Simply assign a value to an object and reference one of the property formats.

ImplementationExample 1

This first example displays the user's name in the common format (see Figure 13.16).

Dim s As NotesSession
Dim person As NotesName
Set s = New NotesSession
Set person = New NotesName(s.UserName)
Msgbox "This is the COMMON format: " & person.Common

Figure 13.16. Example of the Common user name format

 

ImplementationExample 2

This second example illustrates the user's name in the Abbreviated format (see Figure 13.17). This format as well as the Common format can be used to send emails.

Dim s As NotesSession
Dim person As NotesName
Set s = New NotesSession
Set person = New NotesName(s.UserName)
Msgbox "This is the ABBREVIATED format: " & person.Abbreviated

Figure 13.17. Example of the Abbreviated user name format

 

ImplementationExample 3

The third example shows the user's name in the Canonical format (see Figure 13.18).

Dim s As NotesSession
Dim person As NotesName
Set s = New NotesSession
Set person = New NotesName(s.UserName)
Msgbox "This is the CANONICAL format: " & person.Canonical
