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.

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!!!
Fri, Oct 31st 2014 11:30a   David Leedy
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
Thu, Oct 23rd 2014 6:41a   David Leedy
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
Wed, Oct 22nd 2014 6:12p   David Leedy
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
Sun, Oct 19th 2014 7:18p   David Leedy
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.

NotesIn9 157: Dabbling in Bootstrap and Font Awesome
Tue, Oct 7th 2014 1:25p   David Leedy
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

XPages and iOS8 Situation Update 2 – First Fix

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
1.) 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

Let’s face it…  I suck at CSS…  You know it.  I know it.  My dog knows it.  However with the magic that is StackOverFlow I just did some useful CSS that I wanted to share. 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

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

This is the last show I have from Tim Tripcony.  This is probably the simpliest demo he’s done for Ni9 but no less important.  It’s a demo of a way to return a message to a user based on an action. Tim actually gave me this demo maybe a year ago and I just totally forgot about it and I assume he then did as well. While I hate the thought of forgetting about it I think it makes this show a little special.  I was so happy to discover it when I went through our shared dropbox. #cod

Serdar reminded me of it and re-sent it to me so I could share.  It’s a little dated but I’m reposting this because the quality of the information should be shared. This is pretty much the marks the beginning of when I came to grips and realized that if I wanted to use XPages in a similar manner to how I developed for the Notes Client I needed to look past ServerSide JavaScript and focus on Java.  I liked bu

I have 2 emails filled with “Tim Info” that I want to publish and just get it out there.  1 is pretty old but the other was forwarded to me last week and I think was from that past Thursday.  Both have some really good information that deserves to be more widely available I think. I also have 2 videos from Tim.  One from a couple weeks ago on using OAuth.  Another

This one time at the Eastern PA Meetup and XMage Memorial…
Mon, May 19th 2014 5:51a   David Leedy
Last night a memorial get together was held in honor of our friend, Tim “XMage” Tripcony.  We met at the Allentown Brewhouse which did seem like a pretty nice place.  It kinda reminded me of the Big River Grill at Disney where we always meet for BALD the day before Lotusphere starts.  So very fitting. Jesse Gallagher, Chris Toohey and I wanted to have some kind of get together to raise a glass to Tim and share some stories and I think it worked out very well. It was great to see o

Tim Tripcony – Rest in Peace my friend
Fri, May 16th 2014 4:00p   David Leedy
I really don’t remember all the details of how I met Tim “XMage” Tripcony, but from early on he was always kind to me and a friend of my NotesIn9 screencast. I remember talking to him probably via email and/or Sametime about a blog post he made on “Fancy Typeahead”. I thought it was brilliant and as like many things Tim was involved with, no one had ever done that before in XPages. I eventually pretty much stole that entire post (with his blessing) and turned it into Episode 24

VENUE CHANGE: Eastern PA Meetup and Tim Tripcony Memorial
Fri, May 16th 2014 10:14a   David Leedy
I’ve gotten a great response to this!  I believe we’re up to 11 people that are likely.  Amazing! But the initial plan needs to change. Apparently some of the local colleges graduate that day and the Bethlehem location was booked.  So we’re going to try and move it to their Allentown location. http://www.thebrewworks.com/allentown-brewworks/ This isn’t really a “room” or anything.  It’s basically reservations for 5:00pm.  I’ve never been ther

Announcing the Eastern PA Meetup and XMage Memorial
Wed, May 14th 2014 12:09p   David Leedy
As much as I would like to, I’m unable to get to Tim Tripcony’s actual memorial with his family and friends in the Atlanta area. But here’s the thing, Tim has friends all over the world. So here’s what I’m going to do: This Sunday evening, May 18th, starting at 5:30ish in the Bethlehem Pa area,  I’ll be getting together with Chris Toohey and Jesse Gallagher. We’re going to toast our friend*, maybe tell a story or 2 and then probably talk some XPages and whatever. We’d like to in

Tim Tripcony
Mon, May 12th 2014 11:19a   David Leedy
This weekend I was working on a NotesIn9 from Tim Tripcony that I’ve been sitting on for a couple of weeks. I pinged him on Skype this morning to ask a question. I was literally just about to start rendering the video when I got word that he has passed away. Here’s the linked in post from Scott Hooks https://www.linkedin.com/today/post/article/20140512170336-24024491-tim-tripcony-you-will-live-on-in-our-hearts Tim was my friend.  My heart breaks over this news. My thoughts and prayers g

The Great XPages Mystery Solved.
Thu, May 8th 2014 3:54p   David Leedy
Disclaimer: Everything in this post comes from Declan Lynch.  He doesn’t really blog anymore but I felt this important enough to share so I’m just trying to put out what info I know. So we had a big problem at the day job this week.  Our main server was getting hammered with what looked like a memory leak.  This server houses our main business application that Declan wrote as well as the iPad BarCode Scanner stuff that I wrote.  So naturally the question was asked of me: “What code upd

XPages: The Best of Times,The Worst of Times
Wed, Apr 23rd 2014 7:16p   David Leedy
If you’re reading this you probably already know that I like working with XPages. It’s a great tool that lets me provide business solutions to my company in a timely manner. There’s also a really really good community behind it. A lot of great people sharing wonderful information these days and I’m happy to try and contribute a little bit to it. But I think the XPages community has suffered a big  loss lately and I thought it was worth mentioning. Recently, at least 3 KEY IBMers have mo

NotesIn9 142: Adding a “Please Wait” to XPages
Mon, Apr 7th 2014 7:47a   David Leedy
In this show it’s back to XPages and demos!  I will do a quick recap on the last show as 141 seemed REALLY popular but then it’s back to work.  In this show I demo a quick tip on how you can use CLIENT SIDE JavaScript to show the user the server is processing.

Wow! Show 141 Recap/
Wed, Apr 2nd 2014 5:25p   David Leedy
I’ll admit I was a little nervous about the last show.  It’s been a long time since I got a little “Rowdy” on the show.  Maybe too long. First I want to thank everyone for all the feedback via comments, Twitter, Facebook, etc.  I think this is the first NotesIn9 that someone (Russ Maher) actually live tweeted while watching. Thanks for the kind feedback to my kids as well.  We all had a good time making the show.  Though I am worried they might actually want to Union

NotesIn9 141: Java vs JavaScript Throwdown
Mon, Mar 31st 2014 3:48p   David Leedy
This is a VERY DIFFERENT NotesIn9.  It’s less of a normal show and more if a response to a recent blog post regarding one persons opinion on the value of Java in XPages and the Value of the UI vs the backend. Actually this show is more of a really long “rant”. This show could absolutely suck.  I pretty much broke all my rules and tried to have fun with it.  I do give my thoughts on things so maybe there’s at least a little value there. There’s no Demo.  There is

NotesIn9 139: SourceTree Deep Dive
Mon, Mar 24th 2014 6:23a   David Leedy
In this episode Paul Withers comes back on the show for a deeper look at using SourceTree and Git Flow. This comes from the session he did with Declan Lynch at IBM Connect.  In that session they ran out of time so this should fill in some of the missing pieces that they didn’t get to cover. I use SourceTree and HG Flow which is the Mercurial version of Git Flow in my Day Job all the time.  While there are some quirks due to Designer and you do need to be careful and understand what̵

NotesIn9 138: XPages Combobox Improvements
Thu, Mar 13th 2014 1:12p   David Leedy
In this show I take a look at using a Combobox inside XPages.  I’m going to demo how to use Java – but it’s NOT scary Java – I show you everything. We’re going to show the user a pretty value in the combobox but get a hold of and store the key value for our use. I’m also going to show how you can create categories inside the combobox. That’s kinda cool I think depending on your situation.
