Menu bar does not appear when accessing a calendar view in Webmail

Technote (troubleshooting)


Problem

On your Lotus Domino 8 server, you use the view below to access your mail file:

http://<servername>/mail/ dbname.nsf/($calendar)/?openview

Result:
The menu items do not appear across the top in this view. (New/Calendar Format/Tools).
If you use a 7.x server, the menu items appear correctly.

Diagnosing the problem

A custom application is being used which accesses this view.

Resolving the problem

This issue is fixed in Notes and Domino 8.5.1 which also fixes DWA hiding embedded views.

Fix details: SPR# JGUO7Q4MVP

Refer to the Upgrade Central site for details on upgrading Notes/Domino.

In future builds, the following notes.ini parameter will be needed to enable this functionality: DWAUnhideDesignItems=1

As DWA progresses away from webmail components, more may become unavailable. This parameter restores all of the webmail components but does so server-wide causing additional disk reads in DWA.

Note: Some of these menu items have changed between the 7 and 8 releases.

The ini parameter is unnecessary but will be available in 8.5.1 for debugging should DWA hide other Notes components.
