Sadly, I will not be presenting at Engage UG this year
Tue, May 2nd 2017 3:34p   John Jardin
Over the past 4 years, I’ve had a great streak of not having any issues with my Visas to enter Europe or USA. Unfortunately, this year, thanks to silly admin issues, I was told that I would not receive my Schengen Visa in time to attend the Engage UG event next week. I can’t begin to explain the disappointment I’ve faced this past week. It took longer than what I thought to get over it. For those of you who don’t know, Engage is a major User Group event that operates fr

IBM Notes TIP: Solution to “Role” error when trying to refresh a NSF design
Tue, Jan 17th 2017 8:00a   John Jardin
So here’s a first time problem I faced this morning when trying to refresh one of my NSF designs in the IBM Notes Client. The design refresh worked 99% until it suddenly popped up with the following error: “Design replace failed, cannot add role, maximum number of entries has been reached“. Quick Solution Thanks to this tech note, the solution, whilst not preferred, is to make sure that the target NSF has the same Roles as the source NSF. In my case I was missing 4 roles. Aft

Fri, Jun 26th 2015 12:39p   John Jardin
Hi Everyone. I’ve finally made some time to test out a few features from the XPages Extension Library. It was a bit of a learning curve, but it’s looking good. Click here to view a Demo of these Controls. I apologize in advance if there’s a small delay when using this App. It’s been hosted on a Server in South Africa…so the Internet Line is to blame. Anyways…below is a list of Controls I’m using in the XPages App: 1. On top you’ll see the XPages Debug Control that was created by

This is a quick tip on how to filter your design elements in Domino Designer to help quickly find what you’re looking for. I have to laugh at myself sometimes. 80% into one of my recent XPages Projects, I found myself completely frustrated, trying to pinpoint 1 of many custom control designs in Domino Designer. I almost fell off my chair when I realised that the solution was staring me in the face the entire time. In Domino Designer, irrelevant of if you’re viewing XPages design elements, cu
