Retrieve All Views in a Database

This routine illustrates how to retrieve all views associated with a database and could be used to build custom buttons that retrieve data based on a selected view.

How It Works

Using the NotesDatabase and NotesView classes, the routine iterates through all views in a database and displays a message to the user.


In the following example, all database views (hidden or otherwise) will be processed with the name of each view appended to a string and displayed in a message window. Alternatively, you may want to store the view names in a dynamic array or perform some other data query for each view. To implement this technique, 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
 Dim view As NotesView
 Dim strViewTitles As String
 Set s = New NotesSession
 Set db = s.CurrentDatabase

 ' Display all view names for the database
 If Not Isempty (db.Views) Then
 Forall v In db.Views
 strViewTitles = strViewTitles & Chr$(10) & v.Name
 End Forall
 Msgbox (strViewTitles)
 End If

End Sub
