Question

@Commands support in Notes Browser Plugin

Answer


IBM Notes Browser Plug-in supports majority of @Commands used by Notes/Domino applications. But there are some limitations on @commands that perform following functions:

  • Functionality not yet supported in Notes Browser Plug-in. e.g. Sametime (IM) integration
  • User's mailfile /Calendar operation
  • Commands that require Domino Designer or Domino Administrator Client (these components are not part of Notes Browser Plug-in package)
  • Commands that Notes Browser Plug-in has no control over. As Notes Browser Plug-in runs inside a browser, it's the browser that manages the tabs, and as such any @commands that deal with Window Management will not work in Notes Browser Plug-in.

Commands that fall into the above category are not supported in IBM Notes Browser Plug-in.

We have categorized all the @commands in various groups as below -

@Commands Group
Supported/Unsupported/Limitation in NBP
Description
Group1 Supported @Commands under this group are all supported by NBP
Group2 Unsupported @Commands in this group are not supported by NBP because of following reasons -
  • Some commands are related to controlling of windows which is now under Browser's control, and Notes Browser Plug-in cannot manage it
  • Commands related to Sametime fail as Sametime Integration is not supported in Notes Browser Plug-in
Group3 Unsupported @Commands specifically designed to be used when designing an application in Domino Designer, or editing design elements. These commands are not supported by Notes Browser Plug-in
Group 4 Unsupported @commands which are used when doing Domino Administration activities using Domino Administrator client. These commands are not supported by Notes Browser Plug-in
Group 5 Limitation @commands which are known issues/limitations in Notes Browser Plug-in. These are tracked through SPR# RSIH9L6ABU. Issue is fixed in Notes Browser Plug-in next version.

Please refer to the table given below, which shows @commands which fall in each of the above groups.
