Create CSS functionality for views and forms in Notes

: Domino Designer
: designer, view, form
Jason Dodds510 - 21 2007 / (0)
Allow developers to use a stylesheet to format view and form action buttons/bars so you don't have to go through the action bar properties for all your views if you want to change design.

Copy attributes between elements

: Domino Designer
: copy, attribute, field, form, design, designer
Mark Haller1299 - 22 2008 / (0)
It would be great if it was possible to copy attributes of a selected element in Designer and "paint" it onto other elements, much the way Format Painter does in Office products.
I'm thinking selecting a field and grabbing the "Computed for Display" property and being able to "paint" ...

Add isSummary checkbox to Field Properties Dialog

: Domino Designer
: form, summary, issummary
Mr Frunobulax360 - 07 2008 / (0)
Add an Is Summary checkbox to the Field Properties Dialog box in Domino Designer.
By default the value would be true.
Deselecting the option would mean that NotesItems created via the field would not have the Summary property set.
The most important benefit of this option would be that ...

Allow Subform ABOVE the Actionbar

: Domino Designer
: form, subform, actionbar, ui, design
Theo Heselmans9557 - 14 2008 / (0)
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.
When ...

Form Property to exclude from FT Indexing

: Domino Designer
: designer, search, form
Tom Franks3077 - 16 2007 / (0)
Why is Full Text indexing an all-or-nothing configuration?  My idea in the general case could be accomplished by either a form property or a list of forms on the FT creation dialog. I'd like to exclude certain documents (hooks, keywords, etc) from the index.  Certain types of applications could benefit ...

Buttons should have a 'No Focus on Click' property

: Domino Designer
: form, button, focus
Theo Heselmans9557 - 15 2008 / (0)
When you put a button above e.g. a RichText field, to perform a simple action as 'EditInsertFileAttachment', the user would like it to insert the attachment where the cursor is at that moment.
Currenty when clicking a button, this button get's the focus, and you don't know where the cursor/focus ...

Better control over what gets displayed as possible values for Names fields

: Domino Designer
: form, design
Dietmar Dumke871 - 03 2008 / (0)
To avoid user errors, give form designers control what types of addressbook entries will be selectable for a given Names/Readers/Authors field. E.g. to define that for a SendTo field should appear only entries which are mailable; in a field which controls document access should appear only entries which can control ...

Horizontal menu Separator to group actionbuttons

: Domino Designer
: action bar, actionbuttons, menu, view, form
Patrick Kwinten21314 - 07 2009 / (0)
The option to display an action button as a menu separator has only effect for sub-actions.
I find it hard to make it clear that certain actionbuttons can be considered as grouped. A horizontal menu separator could make this more clear.
like in:
Close   Publish   Withdraw  |  ...

Layout: Add a grid to Form Designer, auto align new fields

: Domino Designer
: designer, form, grid, layout
Christopher Baier440 - 09 2009 / (0)
I wish Designer would have a layout grid for better/easier layout of forms. This would allow for easier alignment of fields and text,and thus, better looking forms. There are layout regions, but the items you can put in it are limited.
I use tables for layout, but this can cause ...

Support for group boxes

: Domino Designer
: box, form, fields, fieldset, legend
Patrick Kwinten21314 - 30 2008 / (0)
Support of groupboxes. There are workarounds using layers but yeah these are workarounds...

Improve selecting ACL Roles on the FORM/Properties/Security tab

: Domino Designer
: form, security, tab
Wendall Mosemann503 - 24 2008 / (0)
When you try to select who can Read/Author, if you want to select a ROLE from the list, you have to scroll through the list  which may be very long as it includes users, groups and roles.  It would be nice to have a way to edit the list from ...

Add formula @IsDocBeingPrinted

: Domino Designer
: formula, designer, form, hide-when
Erwin Heeren1436 - 22 2010 / (0)

We have
Why can't we have @IsDocBeingPrinted

No problem to trade it for @IsDocBeingLoaded


Inheritance of design when creating Forms

: Domino Designer
: create, form, subform, design inheritance, default
Vlad Sh10679 - 16 2010 / (0)
When creating a new View, you can choose one of which will be produced inheritance. Exactly the same wants and the Form / Subform, since we have a very long time to configure all options again:
  • Action Bar and its properties;
  • basic properties of Form;
  • Window Title formula;
  • code ...

Enable 'CAPTCHA' for a web form with the click of a button

: Domino Designer
: captcha, web, form
Wendall Mosemann503 - 04 2008 / (1)
Add a way to automatically enable "CAPTCHA" for a web form in order to stop form spammers from auto posting forms against that neat new form created. Ideally it would allow the developer to specify either images/questions to present to the end user along with customized error messages if an invalid answer was ...

Sample forms to pick from when you are creating a new form.

: Domino Designer
: form, samples
Carl Rizzo1674 - 24 2010 / (0)
Not an entire Db template.  Just a list of common sample forms to choose from to get you started.  The list could also include other previously created forms on that server.  I was working with Adobe Live Cycle for the first time and when you select a new form ...

Option to display a document within a frameset

: Domino Designer
: form, forms, frameset, frame
Patrick Kwinten21314 - 20 2007 / (0)
for the Notes client I sometimes think it is strange that you can present a view within a frame, but as soon as you open a document it breaks out of the frame and is presented in new tab window.
if you compare it to the web at least ...

Form - Print Header / Footer

: Domino Designer
: form
Michael Amberg822 - 31 2007 / (0)
Change the Print Header / Footer on the Form Dialog to permit linking in a subform. The sub form would then allow creation of pager headers and footers with items such as Company Logo's, Address Footers, etc. that would repeat on each page.

Set properties for all selected Forms

: Domino Designer
: form, form properties, designer
Christopher Boote10606 - 03 2013 / (0)
In the design client, with a list of all forms, select all or some of them, and be able to change all the form properties (specifically background images and colours, action bar properties, include in various menus etc.)

Window title should be evaluated after the fields are evaluated

: Domino Designer
: form, window title, formula, calculated, cfd
Vlad Sh10679 - 19 2010 / (0)
I wanted to make a universal formula and put it in the Shared Computed For Display (CFD) Field $hf_WindowTitle (inherit to all databases), and that it was calculated at the opening of the Form.
    "(Deleted document)");
"New document")

Default outline entry in a form

: Domino Designer
: outline, form
Dan King2709 - 16 2008 / (0)
I'm adding an embedded outline to a form to allow navigation between tabs of a programmed table in the same form. No frames or views involved. It gives me a nice ui I reckon (better than some anyway).
When the form opens, none of the outline entries are highlighted ...
