Domino Designer / DDE 


Make Domino Designer For Eclipse Faster/Stable

: Domino Designer
: dde
Peter Presnell28487 - 05 2009 / (1)
Is it just me or are there more Notes developers that would want to see (1) a more stable Domino Designer, and  (2) run significantly faster.  And would you rate this above ANY and ALL new features that may be added.
We need not set the bar too high.  ...

Correct Indenting For LotusScript

: Domino Designer
: lotusscript, dde, else
Peter Presnell28487 - 05 2010 / (0)
Before ELSE (Eclipse LotusScript Editor) the old Domino Designer client always ensured that the correct indentation was applied whenever I added new lines of LotusScript code.  Now I must manually select the code and type <Crtl><I> to force a block of code to be indetde correctly.  I would much rather have ...

Book Proposal: Introduction to Domino Designer 8.5 and XPage Development

: Domino Designer
: xpages, dde, development, book proposals
Paul Della-Nebbia274 - 15 2010 / (0)
This is in response to Ben Langhinrichs' request for book proposals.
A introductory/primer for pre-8.5 Notes application developers and new Notes/Domino developers.  Covers the following:
  • What is Notes and Domino
  • Domino application architecture
  • Using Domino Designer in Eclispe
  • Creating Domino applications
  • Designing forms and adding fields
  • Designing ...

Correct Casing for LotusScript Typeahead

: Domino Designer
: lotusscript, dde
Peter Presnell28487 - 05 2010 / (0)
When typeahead is invoked in ELSE (Eclipse LotusScript  Editor) it doesn't seem to use the correct casing for the methods/properties (as outlined in the documentation).  Given with SSJS we are compelled to ensure the correct casing is always used I think we should insist that ELSE also provides the documented casing.

Implement code folding in script libraries

: Domino Designer
: ssjs, xpages, dde, eclipse, outline, code, fold, interface
Ben Poole2370 - 15 2010 / (0)
When coding in “vanilla” Eclipse you get code folding for methods, constructors, etc. It would be really useful to have such a thing in server-side Javascript script libraries—in fact, across the board for all script libs and agents.

Autosave for Domino Designer

: Domino Designer
: save, dde
Peter Presnell28487 - 03 2010 / (0)
I now have the option of autosave in the Notes client which can be really useful when typing long documents and (shock horror) the Notes client crashes.  I would also love to see this same capability added to Domino Designer.  Unfornately it is even more likely that the Designer client might ...

Store "Applications" and "Working Sets" in a NSF

: Domino Designer
: dde, bookmarks, favorites, working sets
Joseph Hoetzl5019 - 17 2010 / (0)
OK, due to a missing "Mini-view" in mail, IBM support did the usual, delete the workspace directory and have it create a new one - fine, but I really hate having to re-add all sorts of apps and working sets in designer.
Maybe there is a way to backup ...

Ability to open function in Domino Designer in a new tab window if you already have an open another function from this library

Redesign Working Sets From The Ground Up FOR Notes!

: Domino Designer
: working sets, dde
Peter Presnell28487 - 17 2009 / (0)
After working with Working Sets for a while (or trying to) the only conclusion I can come to is they are not at all designed for Notes.  The original Eclipse/Java platform for which they appear to have been designed for does not translate at all well to Notes.  There have ...

Enhance the objects list when viewing a form to include field type

: Domino Designer
: dde, designer, objects, forms, ui
Joseph Hoetzl5019 - 31 2009 / (0)
When viewing the Objects list for a form in designer, instead of just fieldname (Field), tell me what kind of field "(Field)" is.
e.g. (Field - Text)

Make task functionality with // TODO comments in Java available for LotusScript etc

: Domino Designer
: dde, java, lotusscript, tasks, comments
Phil Warner216 - 21 2010 / (0)
In Designer 8.5.1 I've added the Tasks window to the Domino perspective (Window>Show Eclipse Views>Other>General>Tasks), which will list the stuff I've still got left to do when writing Java, if I add "// TODO...etc" comment lines in my code, which is great. It would be lovely to have this feature ...

Improve Speed For Deleting Agents In DDE

: Domino Designer
: dde, agents
Peter Presnell28487 - 23 2009 / (0)
SInce moving to DDE 8.5.1 it seems that the time taken to perform a basic task of deleting an agent from a database now takes a full minute.  To remove six agents takes six minutes.  As a developer i usually have lots of things to do and having to sit around ...

Do not replace list of design elements in center pane

: Domino Designer
: dde, center pane, view, open
Bas van Gestel2994 - 26 2011 / (0)
I find it very frustrating that I cannot have a list of forms open in the center pane and a list of e.g. views from the same app. Just add an extra tab for the views when the forms is already open.

Provide option to collapse panels in DDE

: Domino Designer
: dde
Yellow Dog1055 - 15 2009 / (0)
Outside of editing Xpages, many of the panels provided by DDE are of no value.  Even when editing Xpages their are often periods when I do not need to see all the panels.  I can use perspective or close panels.  What I would often find more useful is the ability ...

Smarter Decisions By DDE On View Rebuild

: Domino Designer
: dde, view
Peter Presnell28487 - 04 2011 / (0)
When a Notes view is opened in DDE any change made requires a view refresh to complete before DDE continues doing anything else.  With large views this can consume valuable time, especially when the change made is to the font of a column header which should not require a view ...

Support Control Drag/Drop in Source view

: Domino Designer
: dde, controls
Peter Presnell28487 - 15 2010 / (0)
When I am editing an XPage using the source code view (which is now probably 90% of the time) I would like to be able to drag/drop a control from the control palette instead of switching to the design view.  This can often be a fstaer way than typing out ...

For traditional Notes design elements show the properties box in stead of the Outline panel

: Domino Designer
: panel, dde, eclipse, properties
Patrick Kwinten21314 - 04 2010 / (0)
The "floating" properties is quiet annoying because you have to move it around the design area when it is on top of items.
For traditional Notes design elements (Forms, Views) it would be more handier to have the properties box appear in the Outline panel, simply because that panel ...
