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 ...
As an alternative to Views/folders, provide the ability to execute a query at run time that returns a subset of documents in the database and allow me to display these documents in a control similar to a view/folder. This is not unlike how datagrids work with SQL based languages. I ...
The current implementation of id's in XPages is -very- cumbersome, and makes it harder to write unobtrusive JS. A workaround for this would be to make a hashmap (converted to a JS object in the browser) of all the element names/their rendered id.
I would think this shouldn't be too ...
They are far more inferior than the standard controls in quality, documentation, ease of use etc. Some controls like the dialog are very useful, some look functionlly duplicated e.g. Dynamic content & Switch and SOME HARDLY WORKS, e.g. Form table, Form layout row & column. They are barely accectable when ...
As best as I can tell there are two key differences between the way an NTF and a NSF operate. 1) Scheduled agents will not run in an NTF, and (2) An NTF cannot be viewed in a Web browser. With the push towards doing more Web development (including XPages) it ...
If we want a killer application ...
If an agent, replication, or save action from another user changes the back-end document, then show this in the front-end UI document.
This Idea comes from a comment from Bruce Lill in idea "Problems of conflict situations".
Bruce, I like it so much that I made this idea out of ...
XPages are here, they're big and bad and scalable. They integrate with @Formulas, which is extremely powerful. For things like repeat controls, type-ahead, etc. there are times when you use @DbLookup or @DbColumn.
But these functions are limited in returning 64K, like the days of old.
Two new ...
I like the calendar time control for date/time fields on the client. These should also work on the web like they do in Xpages but without having to use Xpages. Would be a huge timesaver instead of having to use js. Would be nice to be able to specify a ...
So a cool new technology requires a massive rewrite? Hmm.... sounds ...
I would like to see the ability to display data in a view (or document collection) in Xpages using a calendar style view similar to the one supported in the Notes client.
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:
I would like an easier way to include newer versions of Dojo in my xPages applications. I would like to be able to choose on the application level which version of Dojo to use, similar to how we can choose a theme.
The development cycle for Dojo is faster ...
Add a simple control similar to the panel in which the contents are loaded from a designated URL. Similar to a frame in a frameset or an IFrame.
I need a link to navigate the View from the open document.
Before xPages used for these purposes @Command - [NavigateNext], [NavigatePrev], [NavNext], [NavPrev].
It would be great if when you compute the application datasource in an xpage you would get a collection of views like you do if you simply select current or even browse for one using other.
In the 2 wiki posts below I explain how I am computing my application datasource ...
The outline pane in DDE is a great tool. However, it could benefit from a expand all/collapse all button.
From code reusability point of view it would be great to have the ability to call LS subs and functions from SSJS code.
Domino Public Key Infrastructure for xPages applications
In order to develop secured xPages applications I need the following:
- Analogue of NotesDocument.Sign
- Analogue of NotesDocument.Encrypt
- Analogue of signed section
- Ability to extract name of signer, signature date-time, etc.
