    I need this function, when I've a view with categories I'd like to select a entery category instead of selecting 1 by 1 because 1 category can have hundreds documents. It would be fantastic select several categories and with this button select all documents of the categories that I selected.

    This would be a very useful feature when used from the UI.

    Well we already build an action using the mentioned functions, but to select them in the ui that way is with increasing amount of documents really bad for performance.

    A fulltext search would also be possible, but a lot of users aren't quite familiar with the search syntax and no matter how often you explain it they still don't get it. Another Problem is, that the user themselves don't know the name of the field that is used for categorizing

    Or you could do a fulltext search on the categorized field :-)
    Like ->   [Category] = "Value"

    Isn't that already implemented by using the CreateViewNavFromCategory or GetAllViewEntriesByKey or GetAllDocumentsByKey?

    Sure it needs a little coding by using the NotesViewNavigator. But on using the NotesViewEntryCollection or the NotesDocumentCollection you only need to disable Autoupdate on the NotesView to avoid "no longer in view" errors.
