I wish I could combine NotesDocumentCollection with PickListCollection dialog box
I have a database where I want to select some document with LotusScript. These documents should be presented to the user in a dialog box so he or she can choose what documents to delete.
Now, this isn’t hard to do with a dialog box containing a list of selected values from the documents. However, this always looks “oh so dialogish” ….
What if I could present any documents (such as a NotesDocumentCollection) in a PickListCollection dialog box? This would be much more nice looking IMO.
My initial ideas is to use a hidden folder, and store the NotesDocumentCollection with PutAllInFolder. Then the PickListCollection would show those documents. This may however lead to a race-condition if multiple users attempt to do the same thing at the same time.
Unfortunately it seems like I can’t use a temporary folder name either, as the folder must to be known to the design collection at an early stage of the database-open process. The PickListCollection seems to have issues finding newly created folders.
