Domino Designer / column 


"Grey Out" hidden view columns in designer

: Domino Designer
: hide, column, view
David Lundy1648 - 02 2008 / (2)
Like many of us, I use hidden columns in views for sorting, row coloring, etc.  I also get confused sometimes when looking at the design of the view and trying to figure out which columns are hidden and which aren't.
I think it'd be very useful if the designer ...

Define View Column Titles using @Formula

: Domino Designer
: view, column, title, @formula
Philippe P.348 - 29 2009 / (2)
Now you can only specify 1fix text label for Notes view column titles. 
It would be very usefull to be able to specify an @Formula to define Notes view column titles. Especially in multilingual environments, where you can use @formula to show the column title in the user's language.

Computed View-Column-Titles

: Domino Designer
: column, title, computes
Hynek Kobelka8110 - 02 2007 / (3)
Right now you have to use „fixed“ text values in column titles. This makes it difficult to design multi-language applications as it is not acceptable to create several copies of a view only to get proper titles on it. Everywere else (forms,outlines,... )we can easily compute texts so ...

Mouse-over Text for Column Titles

: Domino Designer
: column, mouseover, column_title
Corey Davis1744 - 08 2007 / (0)
Add the ability to designate alternative title text for column titles that would display when the mouse hovers over the column title.  Useful for providing more details when using abbreviated text in titles somewhat similar to Field Help.

Column width in Views - double click on the border should auto-size the width to the content

: Domino Designer
: column, width, resize, excel
Patrick Kwinten22018 - 01 2010 / (2)
Just like excel does...

View Column Total - Option to Remove Grand Total

: Domino Designer
: designer, view, column, totals
Conrad Senn235 - 06 2007 / (2)
I sometimes have the need to not see the grand totals on View Columns.  The client would much rather just see the Categorized totals.  Have a check box in designer in the column box where Totals are specified to show or not show grand total.

Provide the ability to lock a column, row (document), or category when scrolling.

: Domino Designer
: applications, column
Alan Lepofsky8315 - 03 2007 / (1)
I think it would lead to some really cool view designs if developers could lock certain elements in place.

Shared column improvements

: Domino Designer
: shared, column
Paul Davies12381 - 11 2008 / (1)

1. When choosing to share a column in a view, an additional option to replace the selected column with the newly created shared column would be beneficial

2. when inserting or appending a shared column, the dialog should stay open to allow you to insert more, or simply allow multiple ...


Disable "Are you sure?" when saving a Shared Column

: Domino Designer
: shared, column, dialog, message
Gary Wilkinson366 - 23 2008 / (0)
Every time you save a Shared Column you are prompted if you want to save you changes.  There should be a "Don't display this again..." option on the dialog box.
Or is there already a notes.ini setting for this?

Calculating a Categorized Column From Other Column Totals

: Domino Designer
: column, totals
Geoff Black238 - 07 2008 / (4)
It would be great to be able to create a calculation in a categorized column which references other column totals. Currently the Totals property for a Column only allows the option to calculate based on the values of the selected column (Totals, Average per document, Average per sub-document, etc).

Improve the order appearance of columns (and make they adjustable)

: Domino Designer
: column, designer
Patrick Kwinten22018 - 25 2008 / (1)
for the designer the adjusted width of the columns is being recognized the next time you open designer.
but to my opinion the ordering of the columns may also be adjustable.
if i work as a single designer on a database the appearance icons have more value that ...

Vertical Alignment of Column Headings

: Domino Designer
: column
Peter Presnell26659 - 10 2008 / (0)
Whenevr a view is defined to have a heading with more than 1 line it would be nice to be able to specify the vertical alignment of the column titles.  Currenty view titles default to a "top" vertical alignment.  In many applications I would prefer to see column heading aligned ...

@WeekNumber - calculate the week number from a specific date

: Domino Designer
: calendar, week, number, column
Thorsten Seidel665 - 21 2011 / (4)
I'm shure, I'm not the first and not the last....
I need an @Function to calculate the calendar week of a specific date.
The function should be like @WeekNumber(date; format) with format = [calendar (gregorian, julian, ...) / region / ISO-8601 / etc.].
I know, there are a ...

Use the columnName in @DBColumn (instead of columnNumber)

: Domino Designer
: column, @dbcolumn, programmatic name
Patrick Kwinten22018 - 26 2009 / (1)
in case the @dbcolumn function could use the programmatic name of a column instead of the columnnumber it would be easier to make updates on views.

Make @IsCategory return a simple True or False that can be used in other formulae

: Domino Designer
: view, column, category
Paul Davies12381 - 14 2008 / (2)
anyone who has tried to use @IsCategory, probably to colour a view row will know just how strange this formula is, i.e. it's result cannot be used in any other formulae
Can we have it just return a True or a False instead, or at the very least make it work ...

@Name [TOLF] parameter for returning "Lastname, Firstname"

: Domino Designer
: formula, @name, i18n, names, column, collation
Gregory Engels1762 - 03 2008 / (5)
Note This keyword is new with Release 8.5
Returns the name in the form of  Lastname, Firstname when a common name or a hierarchical name is provided. This is especially usefull when used as in a column formula, since it allows to sort the names bibliographically.

New number format column style property: index

: Domino Designer
: column, view, formatting, sorting
Patrick Kwinten22018 - 30 2009 / (1)
Just a simple time-saver for good looking views:
It would be nice to be able to sort values writing with a dot notation as an index
if you write an index as text with a dot notation and try this to sort in a column number .10  is placed above ...

Column - Totals: useless for display values as icons

: Domino Designer
: view, column, icons
Patrick Kwinten22018 - 06 2007 / (1)
the total option for a column (tab 2)is pretty useless when the optoin is set 'display values as icons'.
much better would be to be able to provide a formula in combination with a custom icon, selectable from a resource or something


: Domino Designer
: notesviewentry, totals, column, views
Joseph Hoetzl4703 - 09 2007 / (2)
We have notesViewEntry.IsTotal, but I was just working on something and would have loved a quick way to notesViewEntry.GetTotal. 
Sure, workarounds abound, but thought this would be handy.

Column style as Number - Number Format = Weight

: Domino Designer
: column, numeric, style, formatting, weights, view, view_column
Patrick Kwinten22018 - 04 2009 / (1)
I am working on a View in an ordering system and I would like to display the correct weights for orders.
It would be handy to be able to select a number format as Weight for the column so I would not have to worry about the correct conversion ...
