ForAll variable to follow type of array element

Sub Initialize
Dim ns As New NotesSession

Dim db As NotesDatabase

Set db= ns.Currentdatabase

ForAll vw In db.Views

If vw....

End ForAll

In this snippet, vw is a Variant and not a NotesView, which is terribly unpractical.


  • either deduce the correct variable type, or

  • allow vw to be declared

    If you use a custom class array then it works as you want and the ForAll variable has the correct type. You can then directly call the methods of that class.

    The problem here is that db.Views is not an Array of NotesView objects, but a Variant. This is because a property in LotusScript cannot be an array or a List (can be any of the scalar data types). If it were possible, the parentheses for selecting an element would be indistinguishable from property parameters.

    The solution is to use a specific variable

    Dim v as NotesView

    Set v = vw

    The advantage is that it can also be referred to after End ForAll, e.g. in an error handler.
