Rebuild Dependent Agents/Script when Script Library Classes are Updated

Changes to script library classes can break code throughout a database, with errors such as "Cannot find external name: EMAILREMINDER" occurring until the agents/scripts are re-saved.

This can be frustrating as Designer doesn't automatically re-build the dependent code when changes are made in used script libraries.

It would be best to automatically rebuild all related scripts using the script library when the library is updated.

Having programmatic access to "Rebuild all LotusScript" would also be helpful in repairing this.

    Won't work in design-time. What if there are multiple design databases; where A references B and B references C? It has to be solved during run-time IMHO, and if there's nothing essential changed to a class's method I don't see why execution couldn't continue. So instead of verifying the class signature the runtime should verify the class method signature. Or so.

    Yes, but it only displays any errors on the Problems tab.

    But there is another checkbox: Save and sign design elements during automatic recompilation - it saves the affected elements. There can be dozens of them. So it would be good to have a button that would do it only on demand.

    Isn't that what the "Enable automatic recompilation of all dependencies" option in Designer Preferences > Domino Designer > LotusScript Editor does?
