I just wanted to mention that sometime last week NotesIn9 passed 100,000 total video plays/downloads of videos!
Of course that’s not unique users… people watch the same show more then once, but still I think it’s a really good number showing growing interest in XPages technology.
Anyway – I’m very pleased at the interest in my little show. When I started this in the summer of 2009 I never thought it would go this far. And I certainly couldn’t have done it without the awesome help from my growing list of contributors. These people are the true XPages experts and I’m very happy that they’ve come on the show to share their talents and tips.
My most popular show continues to be my original XPages Jumpstart video. A 73 minute session that I originally presented at some user groups. That show is been viewed / download over 8,500 times itself!!
There’s a lot more to come for NotesIn9.
- I’m investigating getting the shows transcribed or maybe even closed captioned/subtitled to help people where english is not their first language.
- I’m desperately trying to do some things to improve my website and consolidate XPages.TV and XPagesCheatSheet.com into NotesIn9 to try and make things easier to find.
- I’ve got some more great contributors coming on soon if all goes well.
- I also have a bunch of my own shows in the queue that I want to try and get to.
So needless to say, NotesIn9 will keep going and hopefully serve up another 100,00 in less time!
I really must thank Chris Miller and his Spiked Studio Productions for supporting NotesIn9 with wordpress hosting and advice. He came to me very early on and gave me some help when I really needed it.
I also want to thank Jeremy Hodge and his ZetaOne company for creating my logos and assistance with other aspects of the show.
And I especially want to thank everyone for watching and for any comments and emails. I really appreciate them!
In celebration of this event there will be some new shows out next week.
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 [read] Keywords: xpages mobile
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! [read] Keywords: notes
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 [read] Keywords: xpages
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. [read] Keywords: xpages java
NotesIn9 165: Learning XPages Part 6 – Forms, Views and XPages
Tue, Nov 11th 2014 6:20a David Leedy 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.

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.

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.
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 [read] Keywords: ibm
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.
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.
