This help page explains how to handle a Repositionable Note control through programming.
Displaying an information in a Repositionable Note control
To display an information in a Repositionable Note control, a simple assignment is sufficient.
For example:
  • direct assignment:
    NOTE_CustomerNote = "Important customer"
  • assignment by variable:
    NOTE_CustomerNote = Note_Customer
Remark: If the control is associated with a file item, the assignment is automatically performed by using FileToScreen.
You also have the ability to use the following notation: "NOTE_CustomerNote = CUSTOMER.NOTE". For more details, see Binding a Repositionable Note control to an item.
Caution: The Repositionable Note control includes no scrollbar. The text will be truncated if it exceeds the size of the repositionable note. The control size can be modified (Height and Width properties).
Retrieving the value displayed in a Repositionable Note control
To retrieve the content of a Repositionable Note control:
  • perform a simple assignment.
    For example:
    CurrentNoteContent = NOTE_CustomerNote
  • use the Value property.
Remark: If the control is associated with a file item, the value typed is automatically retrieved by using ScreenToFile.
You also have the ability to use the following notation: "CUSTOMER.Note = NOTE_CustomerNote". For more details, see Binding a Repositionable Note control to an item.
Forcing the export or import of notes
The user can import or export the notes (found in the window or in the application) in a "wdnotes" extension file via the popup menu of the Note control or window.
You have the ability to force the export or import of the notes by programming with AAFExecute:
  • the aafExportNote constant is used to force the export of the notes found in the specified window. The user must select the file containing the notes.
  • the aafImportNote constant is used to force the import of the notes. The user must select the file containing the notes.
Caution: the export can be performed only if the content of the note was modified.
Versions 22 and later
Tip: To import and export all the repositionable notes found in a window, use NoteLoadAll and NoteSaveAll.
New in version 22
