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!
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. [read] Keywords: xpages
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.

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 [read] Keywords: notes
NotesIn9 146: Going Mobile with Bootstrap
Tue, Jul 8th 2014 11:14a David Leedy 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.

NotesIn9 145: Simple Feedback in XPages
Thu, May 29th 2014 4:57p David Leedy 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.

A conversation with my Son
He got a good response so I thought I’d give you a snippet of a conversation from this weekend.
Me: “Tell the girls we are having popcorn and ice cream for dinner”
Matt: “that is the stupidest idea I’ve ever heard.”
Me: “you think it’s a stupid idea?”
Matt: “I mean, not literally..I think it’s a great idea”
That’s how [read] Keywords: notes
NotesIn9 143: Component vs Value binding in XPages
Thu, May 22nd 2014 6:42a David Leedy In this show Tim Tripcony explains that while we’ve typically been binding to a value all this time, it’s possible to bind to a component inside your XPages Development.
This show was originally published elsewhere and I basically grabbed this to try and improve the visibility and get Tim’s information as much exposure as possible.
