Just like I can Option Declare, or Option Private, or Option Base 0...
Allow me to turn off the NotesDocument extended syntax. (ie: NotesDocument.subject="blah" or subject=NotesDocument.subject(0) )
Manypeople think it was a mistake to ever offer this capability in the first place. It's certainly lead to some terrible ...
There is another idea for Full DXL Round-trip, but it is for both design and data. This idea hopes to take smaller bites of the elephant that is DXL support. Lotus should begin by making design elements 100% round-trippable in the next version of Notes. This would open many doors ...
XPages should have native access to RDB data. This will allow the use of external SQL data in views and forms in conjunction with Notes data. Moving Domino Designer to Eclipse was a big step forward in opening up the propertairy technology of the Lotus Notes development platform. The next ...
It would be really great if IBM provides some commonly used templates like timesheet,help desk, bug system etc.. in the Domino like Microsoft provides for SharePoint .
LotusScript needs a method for creating an empty NotesDocumentCollection object. Many of us have "silly looking" techniques to create an empty collection anyway. A sort method for a NotesDocumentCollection would also be nice.
When I create new lotuscript agents, I want a default set of code to drop in. Not just "option declare" but I may want to predefine some things that I use nearly every time I write an agent.
Some examples I might use:
Dim session ...
During Lotusphere 2008 I heard that IBM "discourages new users from using the C++ API" according to George L, probably meaning that the C++ API will die not so far from now. If you feel that the C++ API has been a valuable API alongside the C API, please promote!
We need the capability to join documents natively in a view in the notes client with out the need of DB2.
I suggest the following syntax:
[ FULL | INNER | OUTER ] [ LEFT | RIGHT ] JOIN left_selection_formula [ALIAS "fieldname1" AS "aliasfieldname1", ALIAS "fieldname2 AS "aliasfieldname2", ... ] ...
A lot of websites have a menubar/actionbar below the banner/logo/title. This gives the user a better experience, and looks nicer too. Notes currently has the actionbar always at the top.
I propose to have a setting in the actionbar to define/compute an optional subform to put above the actionbar.
Add a separate dialog to display and enter hide-when formulas to improve visibility and access in designer; and/or add shading to indicate where hide formulas exist, as is done with pass-thru HTML.
As the user, designer, administrator of our Notes environment, I frequently have all 3 loaded.
I'd really like an app/db block list so that when I have the "Debug Lotusscript" option enabled and I need to check my mail, or something else, that I could have a list of db/apps ...
Provide the ability to check off a box on the field properties box that indicates that the field is required. Also provide a UI clue that the field is in fact required. See screenshot.
In the last time many developers had adopted Linux and MAC OS as their natural operating system to create programs.
Domino Designer is developed using Eclipse Platform, and as anyone knows Eclipse works in any operating system, Why doesn't Domino Designer work in the same way?
We need Rounded Corner Tables for Notes (if possible, web) applications.
It is clear to me that one of the reasons that many of the good Ideas posted here will not be implemented due to the lack of resources at IBM.
So I would like to know your feeling about the following:
Could we setup a (small) group of ...
I would love it if while creating a view I could select a form and have notes create a view with all of the fields in that form.
This would be extremely useful when I am creating a view with many fields. Especially when that view is specifically used for importing data. Thank You.
I don't think there's much to add to this. How hard can it be to sort this?
The Domino Object Model classes for Java that deal with multi-value items use the java.util.Vector class for item values. For example, see the lotus.domino.Item.setValues(Vector) method. That was a good design back when those classes were first created for Java 1.1. But since Java 1.2 the recommended best practice ...
