Please identify LotusScript reserved word more correctly in Domino 11.0.x Designer

One customer use Domino Designer 11.0.x and defined a function with name DeclareObj

like following:

1 Function DeclareObj( count As Integer ) As Integer

2 DeclareObj = False

3 (省略)

4 DeclareObj = True

5 End Function

then he got a "Variable should be moved to declaration section" error and the above Lin4 and Line 5 were moved to declaration section.

After changed function name to some string which does not start with "Declare", the error does not occur.

We know that Declare is a reserved word in LotusScript for the following purpose:


Declare statement (external C calls) (LotusScript® Language)


But Domino Designer should not identify "DeclareObj" as a reserved word.

Please improve Domino Designer to identify reserved word more correctly.
