Add a Setting to prevent Users from Double Clicking to Edit documents

In my experience, Notes/Domino is the only environment where double clicking a document/screen puts it in edit mode. We would prefer our Nomad Web application to use an "Edit" button of our creation to switch from "Read" to "Edit" mode.

I posted this in the Notes Forum and got a reply regarding the ability to do it using Lotuscript, which would work but be labour intensive.

I would like to see this capability added as a Setting in the DB Properties

    You can do this already now. In the QueryModeChange event set Continue to false unless a condition that you are in control of is set to true. E.g. only continue if an environment variable or profile document variable is set to 1.

    In a the edit button that you want your users to use you need to set that condition before trying to turn the document into editmode.
