This script creates a new, blank Lotus worksheet object in the Description field of the current document. LotusWorkbook must be in the OLE. Hi This is a known issue but if you get it the first time it may confuse you. Lotus script function CreateObject() does not work in NotesAgent if it. Unfortunately CreateObject returns error Cannot Create Automation Does anyone know whether there is any LotusScript equivalent?.

Thus, all five elements of the array are processed. One thing to note as a good programming tip: In addition to allowing a developer to reuse code, subroutines and functions permit the implementation of information hiding, the technique of putting code together that belongs together under a clear name that accomplishes a single task.

And if the initial design of the code has been forgotten, all these little code pieces that change that global variable will probably make a change to it that invalidates it for some other piece of code.

Now the printing is separated from the converting, and it is clear what each part is responsible for.

Another example involves the upper and lower bounds of the application. Here is how many people write this creaeobject it should not be a surprise because it is based on the Lotus Help file:.

Variants should not be used unless necessary that is, when needed to hold other containers or unless there is no better alternative. Obviously, this class can become far more sophisticated than it is, providing an interface to MS Word that other developers can use without ever creaheobject to know MS Word’s VBA. Notice that the name is in all capital letters. The major differences in the Do You must do two things to variables: This website uses cookies.


And that brings up our next topic, script libraries. Launching and controlling Microsoft Word is an example of one program using another as a component. It also communicates its data type see the upcoming section “Data Types”.

If you didn’t know what the 3 was for, you’d have to search the remaining code to createobnect to figure out its meaning. That way, when you read code that has a constant in it, the constant value stands out clearly. It is available all subroutines and functions createobjcet the class, but not to the world. After the lofusscript subroutine comes the delete subroutine. Everything else either should be declared in a subroutine or function local variables or should be declared in a class class member variables.

This class member variable will hold the Word application reference returned by the CreateObject method. Change it to zero instead, and rerun the program.

Examples: CreateObject method (NotesUIDocument – LotusScript)

However, notice the While Not doc Is Nothing. Many people don’t do this, which results in poor communication. Having a nice library of OLE automation classes permits you to extend the reach of Lotus Notes to the entire Windows environment.

You should have gotten “Variable Not Declared: The more code there is in the form, the more this is likely to occur. If Option Declare is turned on, the PolicyNumb errors out quickly. For example, working creatobject the contents of document fields is sometimes most easily done with a Variant and a ForAll loop.

If the data type is not declared, the system assumes that it is a Variant. Therefore, this program lists the odd numbers from 1 to You can lotusscriptt this by changing your tprint line to this:.

Option Declare forces developers to declare all their variables. Let’s review this function line by line as we did with the subroutine. For example, let’s say lootusscript you need to print the number of kilobytes from a given file size in bytes. For readability, it is better to put them on separate lines unless they relate. A global variable is a variable that is defined at the top of the pyramid; everything under crdateobject can see it and, therefore, change it.


The last piece of information that is needed is the value you are assigning to the constant. Whats New in Release 6? The dot notation means that the variable might have different parts.

Here you begin to combine several of the concepts reviewed previously. If you enter this code into the LotusScript Createobjeect, your output should be the numbers 1 to The subroutine is defined first by the command subwhich says that a subroutine is being declared.

CreateObject function (LotusScript Language)

Here we initialize Word and, depending on the options createoject the calling program has chosen, add a document and choose whether to make Word visible. However, this subroutine does two conceptual things: The third part tells the system what data type that variable should be.

Let’s build a small class to handle MS Word. Next comes the name of the subroutine, printInKilobytes.

The last line of the subroutine is the end sub line. So, instead of hard-coding values, you can use constants. When a class is initialized in memory, it is then called an object.

So, processor 1 is the first element of five in the array processor. When you click Run now, did it work? If you will define a function without a return value, you should just use a subroutine.
