Adding rich content is notesuidocument

I'm often facing problems when working with notes ui thru Lotusscript and I want to add rich content to a richtext field.

we need functions for appending

  • http, document, view and database links

  • images

  • changing font, Bold, Italic, underline, color

  • appending html that is converted to richtext

This would make it much better

    That's right, there should be simple native methods in LotusScript.

    To the above, I would like to add the ability to set the width by a column in the NotesRichTextTable.

    We know there are workarounds but we shouldn't have to use them

    While it would be easier to have NotesUIDocument methods to do all this, it is worth noting that it is quite possible to change the NotesDocument and "refresh" (by closing and reopening the NotesUIDocument), all without ever saving the back end document to disk. Or you can save it. Either way, I've been using that technique for many, many years.

    Of course, I tend to do it with our Midas LSX which offers much more rich text programmability, but it should work fine with the regular (non-UI) Notes classes as well.
