LotusScript function to count how many embedded attachments are in a Rich Text Field. Function accepts two arguments, NotesDocument and RTI name as string. We came across a situation where we needed to be able to count how many attachments were in a rich text field in LotusScript. Scenario – We had a table with four tabbed rows. In each tab was a rich text field (which was hidden unless user clicked on tab). We needed a way of viewing how many attachments (if any) each rich text field was holding without clicking on each tab to see.

Targeting Domino for Webapps Incidentally  

By Jesse Gallagher | 2/11/20 5:03 PM | Development - Notes / Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

I recently had occasion to break ground on a new web project that uses a Notes runtime and has a web front end, and I figured it would be a perfect occasion to structure it in a way that is clean, portable, and, while it will run on Domino, doesn't have to use Tycho. I ended up coming up with a setup that I'm pretty happy with, and so I put up an example on GitHub for anyone else to use as a reference for similar cases.

Converting Timedate Strings in @Forumula Language with different date formats  

By Daniel Nashed | 2/11/20 8:10 AM | Development - Notes / Domino | Added by Andi Kress

Maybe I am thinking to complicated.. But I did not find an easier solution .. I had an interesting issue yesterday when adding multi timezone and date-time format to my backup solution, because I cannot store everything in Notes native TIMEDATES. There are some text logs involved, when storing information about a backup. To ensure I have an unified format, I decided to change the internal storage to UTC (in Notes terms: GMT).

Domino SMTP error limit before terminating connections  

By Daniel Nashed | 2/10/20 2:14 PM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Matteo Bisi

My friend Harvey and I noticed a lot of brute force delivery attempts on servers to figure out about email addresses. By default Domino doesn't limit the number of errors until a connection is closed. But there is a notes.ini entry and setting in config document to define the number of errors. https://help.hcltechsw.com/domino/11.0.0/conf_definingthemaximumerrorlimitbeforeaconnectionterm_t.html For larger servers you have to be careful, because that could also prevent newsletters from being delivered, if there are too many users which don't exist. On my own server I set the value now to 4 ;-)
