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 ...
I wish we have a programming API to access and edit the mail database, the
personal address book and the Domino Directory
The API must support LotusScript and Java.
It is not professional to create a document with field and than find ...
The standard RGB color picker is just not enough for real application development. It would be better if the color schemes for an application can be stored in the application itself. Then, when developing, the stored colors in the database are the ones that can be picked easily (not the ...
with a simple copy and paste (in a rich text field) you can easily see all the properties, instead of having to go through the 7 individual tabs.
when the workspace is being maintained for the notes client it can help us to include a default set of icons to choose as database icon, just like you have in your system when you customize the icon for a folder (see image).
not so originally, but sometimes a timesaver
This proposal is going to be a bit disruptive, but a purely optional enhancement only to be added when needed.
Lotus Notes is especially popular for its very tolerant database. You can simply add a field to a document or a form. You don't have to change the database schema ...
We can get all groups of the current user by '@UserNamesList', we can see all groups of any user by 'Effective access...' of the ACL dialog, but we can't get all groups of any user without programming tedious code.
What about an optional parameter 'UserName' for @UserNamesList and/or method Database.queryAccessNamesList(userName)?...
I am sure I am not the only one that is, or in the future will, be developing applications in a mixed-client environment. Today some (most) of our users are on R5, while other are running Notes 7.0.
This idea comes from the article 'Date fields in your format' on www.codestore.net.
The idea is basically to have the ability to specify date formatting on a database level instead on design element micro level (view column, form field).
At this moment I am working on an application that ...
I suggest to add a new property to the NotesDatabase object to store version (application version eg.: 2.13.04 ) info. I think everybody used a "v.2.3" kind of extension in the title or in the About Document.
If a version property would be added to the ...
We have a general Shared Code Library that contains re-usable Subroutines and Functions. Each time we start building a new app we put in a new copy of the Shared Code Library. Unfortunately each developer changes/adds routines in that library. It would be cool if we could have a central ...
It should be interesting to adhere to this language for accessing Notes data : http://www.unqlspec.org/display/UnQL/Home
It may open new perspectives for the use of Domino (on the web).
a good option for downloads in Firefox that you have the option to open a file highlighted in its containing folder. I guess it would be helpful to have something for (local) databases on your workspace.
If we could extend this form property (include in menu) to be available when right-click a database from the workspace a lot of times we avoid that in a default frame a view is being loaded from which the index will be rebuilt first.
Okej, this is inproper application ...
