Retrieve All Columns for Each View in a Database

This routine displays all columns for all views in the database.

How It Works

Using the NotesDatabase and NotesView classes, the routine iterates through every view in the database and returns all columns for the view. Alternatively, you may want to store the column names in a dynamic array or perform some other action with each view column.


To implement this routine, create an action button. Set the Language Selector to LotusScript and insert the following statements in the Programmer's pane.

Sub Click(Source As Button)

 ' Define the objects
 Dim s As NotesSession
 Dim db As NotesDatabase
 Set s = New NotesSession
 Set db = s.CurrentDatabase
 Dim view As NotesView

 ' Display all columns for each database view
 If Not Isempty (db.Views) Then
 Forall v In db.Views

 Msgbox "Found View: " + v.Name
 Set view = db.GetView( v.Name )
 Forall c In view.Columns
 Msgbox ( "----" + c.Title )
 End Forall

 End Forall
 End If

End Sub
