Description :

This structure contains view format information for views saved in Notes 2.0 and later. This structure is one of the components of a $VIEWFORMAT item in a view note. All view notes contain a $VIEWFORMAT item (also known as a "View Table Format" item). A $VIEWFORMAT item is an item of TYPE_VIEW_FORMAT with item name VIEW_VIEW_FORMAT_ITEM. The item value of a $VIEWFORMAT item consists of a single VIEW_TABLE_FORMAT structure, followed by one VIEW_COLUMN_FORMAT structure for each column, followed by an item name/formula/column title set for each column, followed by a VIEW_TABLE_FORMAT2 structure, followed by one VIEW_COLUMN_FORMAT2 structure for each column, followed by a VIEW_TABLE_FORMAT3 structure.

Sample Usage :

VIEW_TABLE_FORMAT2     ViewTableFormat2;

 * Initialize the VIEW_TABLE_FORMAT2 structure.
memset (&ViewTableFormat2, 0, sizeof(VIEW_TABLE_FORMAT2));

ViewTableFormat2.Length = sizeof(VIEW_TABLE_FORMAT2);
ViewTableFormat2.BackgroundColor = NOTES_COLOR_WHITE;
ViewTableFormat2.V2BorderColor = 0;
ViewTableFormat2.TitleFont = DEFAULT_BOLD_FONT_ID;
ViewTableFormat2.UnreadFont = DEFAULT_FONT_ID;
ViewTableFormat2.TotalsFont = DEFAULT_FONT_ID;
ViewTableFormat2.AutoUpdateSeconds = 0;

 * Convert the View Table Format2 structure to Domino canonical
 * format and append it to the buffer. This increments pVFBuf to 
 * point to the next byte after the View Table Format2 structure.

ODSWriteMemory( &pVFBuf, _VIEW_TABLE_FORMAT2, &ViewTableFormat2, 1 );

 * Now append the View Table Format item to the note.

sError = NSFItemAppend( hNote,
                        sizeof(VIEW_VIEW_FORMAT_ITEM) - 1,
                        (DWORD)wViewFormatBufLen );
