Make @IfError() Available Again

@IfError() was introduced in R6, but depreciated with R7 and therefor should not be used any more. Probably, because IBM wasn't able to fix some bug. - However, this @function is very useful and makes code much easier to read and understand than any @If()-statement.




result := <statement>;

@If(@IsError(result); ""; result);


@IfError(<statement1>; <statement2>);


result := <statement1>;

@If(@IsError(result); <statement2>; result);

One easy to understand line, instead of a two-liner with backward logic!

    Agreed. I never understood why they deprecated this command. The good news is that it is still available even with Notes 11.
