Text string selection by double clicking

Text string is selected by double clicking.

For example, in Designer 9.0.1 FP10, when you move and put the cursor on the following text string of "CurrentDatabase" which is a property of NotesDatabase class, and double click it, then "CurrentDatabase" is selected as the screen shot, 01.jpg.

Set db = session.CurrentDatabase

However, in Designer 12.0.1 FP1, when you double click "CurrentDatabase", "session.CurrentDatabase" is selected as the screen shot, 02.jpg.

Text string is selected over the ". (period)" between "session" and "CurrentDatabase".

The customer want same behavior as Designer 9.0.1 FP10.


1. Open a database with Desinger 12.0.1 FP1.

2. For example, create new form and create action button.

3. Write the folloiwng lotusscript.

Sub Click(Source As Button)

Dim session As NotesSession

Dim db As NotesDatabase

Set db = session.CurrentDatabase

Dim dummy As Integer

End Sub

4. Move and put the cursor on "CurrentDatabase" and double click.

5. You can see "session.CurrentDatabase" is selected.
