I’m very happy to announce that after the amazing success of last years XPages Cheatsheet, there will be a brand new CheatSheet for this year!
This year’s sheet is titled “XPages: Social Tools” and is intended to be a starting point on how to connect your XPages Apps to Social Services like LotusLive, DropBox, Twitter, FaceBook, IBM Connections, IBM SameTime and the IBM Social Business Toolkit.
This document would not have been possible without the effort of IBMers Dan O’Connor, Niklas Heildoff and Phil Riand. They literally pulled togerther all the content and “all” I had to do was the formatting. I really hope this proves helpful to people who want to integrate their apps with these social services.
I have learned that the original XPages Cheatsheet will return for Lotusphere. I did send IBM a new version with a couple of VERY MINOR updates that people had sent to me. So even if you have the old one feel free to pick the new one up to get those changes. But again 99% of it is the same.
I assume that both cheatsheets will be available at the Lotus Technical Information booth. They might make it into the back of some of the sessions again. I’m not speaking this year so I’m not really certain about that. They might end up in the Labs also since they were last year.
On or after Lotusphere I’ll be adding the “XPages: Social Tools” sheet to XPagesCheatSheet.com, which is the website that I use to host the downloadable versions as well as the Demo database that I use for most of the NotesIn9.com videos. So you will be able to get it even if you don’t attend the conference.
I hope everyone likes them. If you’re coming to Lotusphere safe travels and I hope to see you!
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.

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. [read] Keywords: xpages
NotesIn9 161: Designer Plugins
Tue, Oct 21st 2014 6:34a David Leedy In this show I take a look at adding additional tools to your toolbox. Specifically we’re going to grab some great projects from OpenNTF.org. Among them are:
XPages Ext. Library
OpenNTF Domino API
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.

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 [read] Keywords: notes
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. [read] Keywords: xpages applications
