TECHNOTE - Midas Rich Text LSX 2.10+
Creating an Image Resource programmatically

Image Resources have proven to be a powerful, versatile feature in Notes/Domino R5, but one critical issue for many companies has been the inability of regular Notes client users to create Image Resources without using the Designer. This technote describes how to create an Image Resource using the Midas Rich Text LSX, given nothing more than an image file. This allows a developer to give anyone, even a web browser client, the ability to create Image Resources.

Image Resource

An Image Resource is stored as a special design note that is similar to a form or page except that it may only contain a single graphic image. This image may then be used on pages, forms and documents by creating an Image Resource link. The Midas Rich Text LSX gives a developer the ability to connect to an Image Resource that exists using LotusScript, and the ability to clone the Image Resource and modify the graphic. Therefore, there must be at least one Image Resource available in a database in order to use this script.

Installing / Using this Sample:
In this sample, we will show how a background agent could be used to create an Image Resource from an graphic file. This same logic could be used from a web client pulling in a document loaded through a File Upload control, with only minor changes. Additional information and samples are available from Genii Software either on our website at or by request at Free evaluation licenses are also available from our website or by filling out our on-line request form at
