Welcome to blog series part 12 of 17 on migrating Notes apps to DOCOVA. In this entry it’s all about multi-value fields.
Notes had the concept of multi-value fields on forms. All fields were basically treated as arrays of values. For example when addressing field values in LotusScript, you might write some code like;
Dim myval = doc.myfield(0) (where doc is a NotesDocument)
Or, for a list of fields;
Var myfields = doc.getFields(myfieldlist) and get the field with myfields.myfieldname
One additional important note as it relates to multi-value fields is that if a multi-value field is used in a view column, DOCOVA “views” support the “Show multiple values as separate entries” option. From a techy point of view, in a relational database environment, I should be able to hear people saying “wow” right about now.
