Lotus Notes Exception - @Function is not valid in this context


Another that can take you a while to track-down.


Usually due to an Hotspot that uses something like @Command([FileSave]) when the document is in read-mode or @Command([EditDocument]) when it's already being edited.

Maybe you are trying to do something like create a response document:

I m facing same probs when i used @Dbcommand("domino";"nagigatenextpage") and same for previous ,and i click on the next or prev button the url change automatically , when u view log there it shows @function is not valid in that context. I could not understand the reason behind that.

This basically have to do with the requirements of the function that you call.

For example @SetViewInfo, requires at least 1 view to be open.
