Technote update -- Undocumented function @LocationGetInfo

By Andrew Pollack on 08/18/2006 at 08:56 AM EDT

An a post a few weeks back I went into detail about the function "@LocationGetInfo" which I used to help Rocky solve a programming puzzle. He needed to get the current location document's name so that he could do things with that location document. After doing a dxl export of common system files I found some parameters and using those we came up with formula language to get what we needed.

Just this morning a response by Jens Winkelmann added a new parameter to that function. [FullName]. I've tested it, and it works.

The list of parameters we now know about are:


If you're curious, the formula language I came up with before Jens' post was:

n := @Text(@LocationGetInfo([UNID]));
locList := @DbColumn("":"NoCache" ; "": "Names.nsf" ; "Locations"; 1);
@For( x := 1 ; x <= @Elements(LocList) ; x := x+1 ;
t := @DbLookup("":""; "":"Names.nsf"; "Locations"; @Subset(@Subset(loclist; x) ; -1) ; "Name" ; [ReturnDocumentUniqueID]);
@If(n = @Text(t) ; @Do(@Set("LocationName"; @Subset(@Subset(loclist; x) ; -1) ); x := @Elements(loclist) + 1 ) ; "")

Does someone provide a list of all known undocumented Calls in @-LotusScript?By Jens on 08/18/2006 at 01:15 PM EDT
Would such a list not in and of itself redefine such calls as "Documented"?By Devin Olson on 08/31/2006 at 01:05 PM EDT
My own thoughts on this are...By andy b on 09/01/2006 at 09:10 PM EDT
You can add [mailfilename] to the list...

It returns the location identified servername !! relativepath\mailfilename.nsf

Here is a tweaked code to return ANY field from current location.

n := @Text(@LocationGetInfo([UNID]));
retFieldName := "LocationType";
locList := @DbColumn("":"NoCache" ; "": "Names.nsf" ; "Locations"; 1);
@For( x := 1 ; x <= @Elements(LocList) ; x := x 1 ;
t := @DbLookup("":""; "":"Names.nsf"; "Locations";
@Subset(@Subset(loclist; x) ; -1) ; "Name" ; [ReturnDocumentUniqueID]);
ret := @DbLookup("":"NoCache"; "":"Names.nsf"; "Locations";
@Subset(@Subset(loclist; x) ; -1) ; retFieldName);
@If(n = @Text(t) ; @Do(@Set("retFieldValue"; ret ); x :=
@Elements(loclist) 1 ) ; "")
@Prompt([Ok];""; retFieldName ": " retFieldValue )
