NotesIn9 Updates the #XPages Episode Guide
Wed, Jul 1st 2015 7:15a   David Leedy
It’s been long overdue but I finally got around to updating my Episode Guide to contain all my shows.  Please check it out! https://www.mindmeister.com/280533435 I often get questions from people on “Where do I start” with XPages.  This guide probably isn’t great but I do have some nodes for “Start here” and “Beginner” that I typically point people to. I hope it’s helpful! ===== P.S. Call for Ideas / Help! This mind map is meant to be a poo

Goodbye headphones
Mon, Jun 29th 2015 6:26p   David Leedy
Sadly my trusty Logitech headphones have come to the end of the road. I think I recorded almost every episode of NotesIn9 with them except for maybe the first couple shows. So I definately got my money’s worth from them. I’ve replaced them with another Logitech pair though I don’t like those nearly as much. But maybe I’ll get used to them. Thanks headphones. It’s been a good run.

In this show IBM Champion and great friend of NotesIn9, Mr. John Jardin returns with the first of several shows talking about Bootstrap and XPages. In today’s demo he’ll show you how to turn the rather bland page into the much nice Bootstrap look and feel.  And the best part?  You don’t even need to use Bootstrap to do it. Check out the video to learn the secret!

For a little while I’ve been hearing from some respected friends that basically “AngularJS is Awesome”.  I’ve sat in some presentations…  seen webinars.. had Skype chats…. etc.  So it’s on my “Interest List” but I’ve not devoted any time yet to try anything about.  As I write this I literally know almost nothing about AngularJS from a practical stand point. A while back though I did look for AngularJS information.  Specifically I

NotesIn9 175: XPages Extension Library goes Responsive!
Tue, Apr 21st 2015 11:08a   David Leedy
I’m really excited about today’s brand new contributor.  Today we welcome Brian Gleeson to the show.  I’ve had many great contributors to the show over the years but Brian is the very first member of the XPages Development team to come on with a demonstration.  That’s been on my NotesIn9 “bucket list” for long time.  I feel like I’ve finally gone “legit”. haha Anyway Brian, who is a key member behind the Ext.

I just saw this come across my email. http://www.hersheyjobs.com/jobs/descriptions/programmer-analyst-hershey-pennsylvania-job-1-5225766 I basically interviewed for this job back in 2008/2009ish.  It is in a great facility right next to the amusement parks “Hershey Park” and “Chocolate World”.  They seem to do a lot of neat things.  At the time I did not get the job – supposedly I came in 2nd due to my lack of web experience. While that was a bit of a blow back t

NotesIn9 173: Getting Started with Servlets
Thu, Apr 9th 2015 9:01a   David Leedy
This is one of those shows that I think is really important.   Today we welcome Eric McCormick, a new contributor and IBM Champion, to the show.  Eric did a geat demo showing us how to get started using Java to make Servlets inside our XPages Applications.  This opens a lot of doors to expose your data to applications outside of the Domino server. Eric’s Blog Note: This show doesn’t have great audio.  My headset stopped working for some reason and also Eric recorded the show in

NotesIn9 172: XPages Java Debugging

In this show XPages “Professor” and IBM Champion, Mr. Paul Withers returns for an in depth look at how to use the Java Debugger to step through the Java code in your XPages applications.  In the beginning and end of the show he’ll also talk about OpenLog which was originally an AMAZING project from Julian Robichaux that Paul has enhanced for the XPages world. This show finally sees a slightly different format that I’ve been wanting to do for a while. We did this demo via

This Sunday is the International Food Festival at my kids school. For the third year in a row I’ll be dusting off my crack BBQ team and we will be manning a table of smoked Pulled Pork, Brisket, Burnt Ends, and our new item Bacon Tater Bombs. It’s always a fun event.  We sold out the first year then last year I doubled the amount we made and sold out twice as fast.  This year I’m bringing enough there’s no way we’re selling out.  I think at least.   Anyway if

NotesIn9 171: IBM Bluemix Text to Speech
Sun, Feb 22nd 2015 9:15p   David Leedy
This show will feature our very first, but definitely not our last, look at IBM Bluemix.  Bluemix is a Platform as a Service solution from IBM that gives you tools to quickly build web and mobile applications. IBM is even adding XPages capability and the original NoSQL database, Domino .nsf , capability to Bluemix. In today’s show Mark Roden comes on to show how you can connect with IBM Watson and harness it’s Text to Speech capability.  It’s very cool.

NotesIn9 169: Show Single Category View
Wed, Feb 11th 2015 3:09p   David Leedy
This show comes direct from the XPages Forum.  I attempt to answer someone’s question on how to do a show single category view inside of XPages. In the beginning of the show I talk about a couple of things community and XPages related.  Where to ask XPages questions for instance. However the biggest news is this: I’ve been elected the the director of XPages.Info! I talk more about this in the opening of the show.  Please tune in.

NotesIn9 hits 300,000 downloads
Wed, Jan 7th 2015 8:58a   David Leedy
Between my libsyn.com hosting and YouTube, the total downloads/views for NotesIn9 have now hit 300,000. Not too shabby for my little corner of the internet I think.  Was almost a year ago that I announced 250,000 downloads.  So looks like there’s still strong interest in XPages.  It’s also good to see people doing lots of videos on their own site or via OpenNTF! I do have more shows coming up.  A great one by Sean McManus will be up next. Hope everyone has a great 2015!  Thank

Would you like to play the Tree on a Truck game?
Tue, Nov 25th 2014 11:42a   David Leedy
It’s the time of year again. Every year my family plays a simple game to get into the holiday spirit.  It’s competitive and borderline cut-throat at times but at the core it’s simple.  We count the number of Christmas Trees that we see on cars and trucks.  By count I mean the first one who sees it and calls it gets a point.  And by calls it I mean the first person who shouts “TREE!” get’s that tree as a point.  It’s actually loads of fun while still

NotesIn9 168 – Updating Source Control for Page Controllers
Thu, Nov 13th 2014 2:58p   David Leedy
In today’s show I take a brake from the Learning XPages series and do a little demo on updating a project in source control.  So it kind of goes with the Learning XPages series but really isn’t part of it. The Learning XPages series is going on a little break while I work on a more important holiday project – but hopefully that project will turn into shows as well. As always let me know if you have any comments or questions. Thanks!

NotesIn9 167: Learning XPages Part 8 – Working towards CRUD
Wed, Nov 12th 2014 2:26p   David Leedy
In this show I continue on to the goal of CRUD. CRUD stands for Create, Read, Update and Delete. By the end of this show we should be able to achieve all 4 actions against the Company document. I’ve not done anything to really make this app look pretty yet.  Honestly I’ve given the UI very little thought so far.  I’m trying to just focus on the core functionality at the moment so the UI stuff doesn’t distract.  I do want to better integrate Bootstrap to clean up the UI

NotesIn9 166: Learning XPages Part 7 – Company Controller
Tue, Nov 11th 2014 7:12p   David Leedy
In this show I demonstrate how to setup and set using a Java “Page Controller”.  This is a technique that Jesse Gallagher came up with and I absolutely love.  Without a doubt it saved me a TON of work on a recent day job assignment.  There’s a little effort involved in setting it up but it’s so worth it in the long run.

NotesIn9 165: Learning XPages Part 6 – Forms, Views and XPages

In this show we finally start coding.  Horaay!  I’m going to create a form and a couple views to start setting up how the data for the applicaiton will work and then I’ll go right into some Java which will act as a bridge between our application and the data that gets stored into the database itself. This show should be particularily good if you’re interested in starting to use Java with your XPages applications. Note: This episode was filmed a couple weeks ago when I was w

XPages and iOS8 Update #6 – The Fix is HERE!!!
Tue, Nov 4th 2014 6:15a   David Leedy
IBM has officially released an Interim FixPack to correct the Mobile Controls issue!  Horaay!  As I said in a previous blog we got this a tad early and have deployed it and that has corrected all the XPages specific issues of iOS 8 devices talking to our Mobile Controls application. Also in this fix are some other key security fixes for issues that’s been discussed heavily recently. Here’s the link.  Go get it! http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21657963 It looks lik

XPages and iOS8 Update #5 – GOOD NEWS!!!

Pete Janzen just tweeted this: I’m happy to say that we’ve been testing this fix for a little while and 2 days ago put it into production.  Yay!  This does seem to fix all the known XPages / Mobile Controls / iOS 8 issues. Sadly not that our Mobile Controls app works on iOS 8 we discovered a new issue that I blogged about the other day.  But that’s strictly an Apple problem.  Nothing to do with XPages. Sounds like it’ll be available next week. Big thanks to IBM for

New iOS8 and Safari problem discovered.
Fri, Oct 24th 2014 6:10a   David Leedy
First let’s be clear what I’m posting about. This is NOT an IBM or XPages issue. This is specifically iOS8 and Safari. I posted on StackOverFlow with all the details. The skinny: I have an XPages app that uses a bluetooth Opticon Scanner No problems in iOS7 and Safari. iOS8 and Safari do NOT work well with the scanner. Characters are dropped. It’s not reliable. Using Chrome on iOS8 seems to work fine. I’ve no idea why or what the issue is. I posted on StackOverFlow and i

NotesIn9 164: Learning XPages Part 5 – Application Properties

In this show we actually go into Designer and create a new database that we’re going to be working with for our application and I have a little discussion on some of the application properties that are useful for XPages Developement. Some Notes: This show is I believe the first in the new larger Full HD resolution of 1980×1020. This will let me get more on the screen but might be harder to see if you typically use a smaller device. Please let me know how this size works for you. Als

NotesIn9 163: Learning XPages Part 4 – Access Control Lists

In this show I gave a brief introduction to Database properties and most importantly to Access Control lists for the database. There’s nothing really* here for the experienced Notes developer but if you’re new to the platform you might find the talk on the Access Control lists interesting. * Well there might be one little thing.

NotesIn9 162: Learning XPages Part 3 – Source Control
Tue, Oct 21st 2014 6:11p   David Leedy
In this show I continue setting up the programming environment by installing Source Tree and pulling down a project that we’ll be using later in the series. My plan is to try and emulate real life, and real life needs some good quality source control so I will ideally be doing a lot of different things with source control along the way.

Library OpenNTF Domino API Debug Toolbar Some  Notes: When I talked about the OpenNTF Essentials.  I didn’t realize there were 2 projects.  The “runtime” and the “toolbox”.  I was referring to the runtime even though I had clicked on the toolbox.

NotesIn9 160: Learning XPages Part 1 – Installing Designer

This show beings my great experiment. I’ve wanted to do this for a couple of years actually. I’m going to ATTEMPT to start from scratch and build an XPages Application. I’m going to assume that the viewer has little to no knowledge of Domino Development.  I’ve gotten a bunch of emails from people brand new to the platform so the beginning shows are kinda geared for them. I’m really trying to start from square one. When I get into the Application build – which

Email Do’s and Don’ts
Tue, Oct 14th 2014 7:42p   David Leedy
I’ve been getting a lot more emails from NotesIn9 viewers lately. Many are asking for XPages help with a particular problem. While I prefer questions unrelated to Ni9 to be asked on StackOverFlow.com with the tag “xpages”, just so the question and answer is public and can therefore benefit more people, I’m always happy to get the email and will certainly try and help where I can.  I can’t always.  But I will try.  Some of the emails say something like “I do

NotesIn9 158: Intro to the Frostillicus Framework
Fri, Oct 10th 2014 8:54a   David Leedy
In this show Jesse Gallagher returns to give us an introduction to this amazing Framework he’s created to try and improve the XPages coding experience. I can’t say that I totally “get it” yet BUT it looks VERY interesting. I have so far taken the “controller” piece from the framework and I’m successfully using that in my applications and I’ll be featuring that on NotesIn9 very soon. It’s really improved how I create my applications.

In this show Dan Friedrich, a brand new contributor joins the Hackathon! He’s a customer (like me!) that’s been doing a lot with XPages. He’s going to talk about using Bootstrap and Font Awesome in your XPages applications. Before the demo I take a little time to update the status of the XPages Mobile Controls and iOS8 issues as well as some overall personal opinions on the Mobile Controls themselves. The demo starts around the 10:00 if you want to skip over my opinion stuff.

XPages and iOS8 Situation Update 2 – Second Fix
Fri, Sep 26th 2014 12:32p   David Leedy
Ok lets update the situation.  As far as I know we started with 3 problems regarding XPages and iOS8 . 1. Uploading photos to a web app doesn’t work. 2. XPages Mobile Controls don’t work 3. An Edit box with Typehead / drop down selection doesn’t work. In my last post I mentioned that Domino 9.0.1 FixPack 2 corrects issue #3. Now I can report that iOS 8.0.2 corrects issue #1.  In testing I was able to upload a photo again where I could not with 8.0.0.  Technically it was cor

It’s time for YOU who are reading this post to get a little more involved and “Join the Conversation” To me a Hackathon is an event were people come together to contribute small pieces to complete a bigger puzzle.

Just to quickly recap the 3 problems that I know about. 1. Uploading photos to a web app doesn’t work. 2. XPages Mobile Controls don’t work 3. An Edit box with Typehead / drop down selection doesn’t work. Problem 1 is clearly in Apple’s court.  Hopefully that will get fixed in 8.0.1 Problem 2 is being investigated by IBM as we speak.  That’s all I know about that.  I have heard from others that Mobile controls will KINDA work if when tapping you hold your fing

XPages and iOS8 Situation – Update 1
Mon, Sep 22nd 2014 11:56a   David Leedy

JT reports that it might be working somewhat – BUT you need to “hold your tap” for 10-ish seconds.  http://www.bleedyellow.com/blogs/NotesShop/entry/io8_xpages_mobile_controls_update?lang=en_us This was confirmed by others.  Personally I could NOT get this to work even once on my iOS8 iPad 3 but did see it work once on my iPhone 5s.  I would not consider this a workaround. If anyone cares to try I set up a test page here:  http://watchtower.notesin9.com/mobileTest.nsf/m

Possible way to fix some of the XPages iOS8 issues.
Mon, Sep 22nd 2014 6:51a   David Leedy
This information comes from Sven Hasselbach.  I’ve not tried this myself.  Use at your own risk. ===== You can use other Dojo versions on a server by downloading the current version from dojotoolkut.org You have to unpack it into data/domino/js, rename it to dojo-1.10.1 and then copy the IBM stuff (folders “ibm” and “template”) to it Resource Aggregation must be disabled and it requires a restart of the server. Currently have running dojo 1.10.1 on a 8.5.3 Machine

Well if you’re seeing this you probably already know what the news is.  I’ve made some big changes to my blog. I’ve moved to a new host, upgraded to WordPress 4 and am playing with a new theme. I want to thank Chris Miller for hosting my blog since almost the very beginning of NotesIn9.  He really stepped in and saved me when I had problems with my original setup. In addition to the new theme, (which might change later) I’ve updated the About page and some of the links

In an app I wanted to have 3 buttons in a row.  Since this is an iPad app I wanted to make the buttons myself so the tab zone is bigger.  I wanted to put some space in between the buttons so I first had: margin-right: 15px; This got annoying because the last button didn’t need to have that margin

NotesIn9 150: Announcing fileVault for XPages
Sat, Aug 2nd 2014 1:18p   David Leedy
This is a different show today.  I’m going to be speaking at MWLug at the end of August.  In this show I’m going to do a little demo of what I intended to present at MWLug.  I’m not going to tell you HOW to do it yet, you’ll need to come to see that.  Or wait for it to hit a future NotesIn9. In addition to the commercial, I’ve taken a small clip from my show 100 (which ran WAY too long).  In this clip I give suggestions on how to get more involved in the XPages

NotesIn9 148: Getting XPages to talk to your phone
Mon, Jul 28th 2014 6:12a   David Leedy
Today we get another great contributor in the form of Oliver Busse. His website is oliverbusse.com.  He’s going to do a really neat demo of how to intergrate XPages with Pushover.net to send messages to a phone that has the PushOver App installed. I think that it’s always nice to see how to mix XPages with other services.

NotesIn9 Celebrates 5 years of ScreenCasting and ALMOST 150 Episodes
Sun, Jul 27th 2014 7:03p   David Leedy
On July 11, 2009 I uploaded the first ever NotesIn9 to YouTube.  The topic was this brand new concept in XPages called “Repeat Controls”. 5 years and 260,000ish downloads later and with the help if MANY people I’ve published 147 episodes so far and WILL hit 150 this week, and maybe even more. Not too shabby for a little show based mostly on XPages I think. As always I want to thank all the contributors to the show.  Without them I could never have gotten this far. Thanks for

NotesIn9 147: Using dGrowl with XPages
Tue, Jul 22nd 2014 6:30a   David Leedy
In this show Brad Balassaitis returns to Ni9 to give us some great instruction on how to start using the “dGrowl” project with our XPages applications.  This is a tool that lets you popup messages back to the user. It’s a somewhat common effect and I really really like it.  Actually before I got this demo from him I was attempting to do something similar inside Bootstrap4XPages and now I might try and switch to dGrowl for the additional features. In addition to using dGrowl t

In this show, we get another great new contributor joining the NotesIn9 family.  Please welcome Sean P McManus to the show. His blog is: http://spmcmanus.net  I’m really excited to get Sean on as he gives us a great demo on using Bootstrap for an XPages mobile focused application. Sean manually added Bootstrap to his application.  Another option is to use a great project on OpenNTF to do this for you via an update site. http://bootstrap4xpages.openntf.org/ http://bootstrap4xpages.com/ A
