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 ...

Apply attribute change to multiple design elements with a single command

: Domino Designer
: development, attribute
Rob Goudvis8695 - 09 2009 / (0)
I would like to have an option where you can set an attribute on more than one design element (or sub-element) at a time. For instance: when you want to change the font of your columns, but leave the other settings like color or emphasis as they are, this idea ...

Global variables

: Domino Designer
: development
Rob Goudvis8695 - 05 2009 / (1)
I would like to see the possibility of global variables. And with global I mean global to the application. I think that the declarations section of the database script is an excellent place to store them.

Book proposal: The Diaries Of A Whimpy Notes Programmer

: Domino Designer
: notes, development, book proposals
Peter Presnell28487 - 15 2010 / (0)
This is response to Ben Langhinrichics' request for book proposals.
Building on a similar format to the great series written by Declan Lynch I would propse a book specifically targeted at those people who have acquired skills as a Notes Classic developer and are looking to make the ...

Book Proposal: SQL Plus NSF have your cake and eat it too

: Domino Designer
: book proposals, development
Tim Paque2656 - 15 2010 / (0)
This is also response to Ben Langhinrichics' request for book proposals.
I still like my rejected abstract: SQL Plus NSF have your cake and eat it too. Was going to show examples of creating rich and web apps that tie into SQL Enterprise data using various methods.  Such ...

Debug indication

: Domino Designer
: application, development
Rob Goudvis8695 - 07 2009 / (0)
I would like to see a global boolean that shows whether or not DEBUG mode is on. This way you can add debugging code to your application that is only executed when you are actually running the debugger.
I am aware of the STOP statement, but this is different.

Easier handling of Hide-when attribute

: Domino Designer
: hide-when, development
Rob Goudvis8695 - 13 2009 / (0)
I would like to see that you can clear old hide-when formulae more easily. At this moment you can disable a hide-when formula in multiple fields on a form, but there is  no easy way to blank out the old formula.

Error Handling for default Domino errors

: Domino Designer
: enhancement, error handling, development, domino applications
Garth Thomas143 - 21 2011 / (0)
Currently when error occur during input translation and/or validation steps such as "Unable to interpret Date or Time", etc. it can be hard to determine the field which is giving rise to the error especially in large or complicated applications.
It would be really useful if we could have ...

Reference to another uidoc

: Domino Designer
: development
Rob Goudvis8695 - 05 2009 / (0)
Wouldn' t be nice when you could get hold to the uidoc pointer of another document? Suppose the following case: you have a parent document and a child document. In thsi child you change some attribute and you want to reflect this in the main document. when the main document ...

Single category view without having to embed it

: Domino Designer
: view, development, single, category
Rob van den Heuvel362 - 07 2008 / (0)
If you want to use a view as single category view, you always need to embed the view on a form or page. This results in some limitations for using the view ( like form formulas, document previews, actions for documents etc.).
There should be a "Show single category" ...

Client/Browser parity for ComboBoxes and ListBoxes

: Domino Designer
: browser, client, development
Samuel Allen484 - 30 2007 / (0)
I would really like to see the combobox and listbox (and a @%$#-ton of other objects behave the same (or at all) in a browser or the client.  If the whole concept of developing for Notes and Domino is to speed developement time, then I shouldn't have to build form ...

Provide an UnQL interface

: Domino Designer
: sql, nosql, development, database
Michel Poleur7416 - 01 2011 / (0)
It should be interesting to adhere to this language for accessing Notes data :
It may open new perspectives for the use of Domino (on the web).

Convert-back / verify a Javascript-signed field

: Domino Designer
: javascript, development, web browser
Mike Woolsey4870 - 03 2011 / (0)
I'd love to be able to read a field that Javascript has signed. I don't think it takes much -- a decrypt function that'll accept the author's public key instead of your own private key. It'd quickly replace all the signed-section functions I use, when they exist for security reasons ...

Add more "don't repeat yourself" (DRY) features to building managed beans & controls

: Domino Designer
: java, jsf, development
Mike Woolsey4870 - 10 2012 / (0)
Domino Designer's XPage interface has a masterful way of managing items so I'm not chasing around for the random file in the random directory. I'm heavily indebted to the designers of Designer for this.
The bean & controls file arrangement needs that  kind of treatment. I wish all the java, ...

Help IBM with the improvement of Notes

: Domino Designer
: development
Rob Goudvis8695 - 04 2009 / (0)
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 ...

Target version of IdeaJam Idea's

: Domino Designer
: development
Rob Goudvis8695 - 16 2009 / (0)
This forum holds a great many number of excellent Idea's, but I cannot imagine that they are exclusively wanted by us for the latest version of Notes.
I do understand that resources at IBM are limited, but there are so many developers out there that will not use the ...

Provide A doc-Load option in each object to load just the first 40k of rich text fields in a doc

: Domino Designer
: notes, development, domino applications
Mike Woolsey4870 - 28 2014 / (0)
1- Often applications couldn't care less about what's in the rich text. When they do, you can still get it for 'em.
2- Document preview in Notes can be abyssmally slow, when all you really need is a half-page image load independently. Advantage: Outlook.
3- Even omitting attachments can give ...

Parity between Java/JavaScript and LotusScript

: Domino Designer
: development, lotusscript, java, javascript
Samuel Allen484 - 30 2007 / (0)
It would be really nice if when IBM tells new developers that they can start developing for Lotus Notes using the language that their most familiar with, the actual act of developing for the platform didn't require them to learn ALL the languages because LotusScript, Java, JavaScript, and @Formula work ...

create a Development and Test environment

: Domino Designer
: development, design
Hendrik Jan van Meerveld812 - 08 2009 / (0)
[have the option to] create a development environment that is identical to the production environment.
The development environment has the same databases (same name and replicaid) as the production environment.
When a developer logs in to the client or designer, he or she can choose which environment to log in ...
