Question & Answer
Folders created using back-end LotusScript methods in Lotus Domino® Designer only display in the user interface until the database is closed and reopened. This issue occurs when using the following methods:
- -- EnableFolder (of the NotesDatabase class)
-- PutAllinFolder (of the NotesDocumentCollection class and the NotesViewEntryCollection class)
-- PutInFolder (of the NotesDocument class)
In cases in which a LotusScript front-end method attempts to get a handle to a folder created by a back-end method and the database has not yet been reopened, an error will occur. For example, calling the OpenView method (of the NotesUIDatabase class) results in the following error message:
- "View or navigator '<folder name>' does not exist"
This issue was reported to Quality Engineering as SPR# DPOL4XXJ8R and was determined to be a software limitation.
You can work around this issue by closing and reopening the database to see the folders.
