I love to develop Lotus Notes applications, but sometimes…

Two hours ago I was very frustrated. Some time ago I created a new agent in a Lotus Notes database. I wrote the code and during a Sametime chat, my Domino Designer crashed. I restarted the Designer, but all of my code in the agent was lost. I started to re-implemented the code. I do not know why, but after several lines of code, I have closed the Designer and re-opened it. Then, I wrote some more lines of code. Some times later, my Designer crashed again. I restarted the Designer and all the new code since the last restart of the Designer was lost… ūüė¶ ¬†I have saved the code several times before the Designer crashed, since I run the agent several times to test it. I had never before this situation. Normally, I implement the code in a library and do not use an agent interface. But I’m wondering why the saved code was lost after the crash.¬†It is possible that the Domino Designer uses an internal cache?

  1. Please try and restart Windows. Your code should then re-appear.

  2. You may be able to see it by closing Notes/Designer, then ending the “nnotesmm.exe” task. Or restarting Windows, as Bruce says. But you may also be out of luck. There is a corruption problem with the LS editor in 8.5.3 that CAN destroy your code. So you might be stuck. I had a developer lose an entire day’s work on an agent, and they had saved many times throughout the day. Rumor is it’s fixed in 8.5.4.

  3. This has happened to me a few times now. It is really infuriating. I’ll try restarting Windows next time.
