Today marks the release of my first video for Notes in 9. It has been my absolute pleasure to work with David Leedy on this project and I really hope that people find it useful. This blog entry is intended for my side-notes and also to provide a spot for any questions/comments.
This came about after my blog article on Adding a “working” visual indicator to the XPages TypeAhead. David approached me because he thought it would make a great Nin9 video. The original article was written from code on an 8.5.2 server and when I went to make the video on my 8.5.3 server I found that the HTML code generated for the type ahead was different any my code was “broken”.
As i said at the start of the original article, this is not bullet proof because you are always at the risk of this happening because we are manipulating the HTML created by the server. When IBM release 8.5.3 they upgraded dojo to 1.6 from 1.4 and the way the dijit comboxbox works had changed from one version of dojo to another, so IBM had to adapt.
The code in the example will work for 8.5.3 and 8.5.2 however because of the beauty of using the dojo.query. The 8.5.2 version is less complex and a couple of the lines in the addVisual() function are irrelevant. Because we are working with the dojo.query selector, and it find nothing to action on in the 8.5.2 HTML code, it does nothing – and most importantly fails over gracefully!!

Tue, Dec 16th 2014 5:19p Mark Roden As people who know me well may have heard once or twice, user experience is everything. When designing a custom web based application for a customer, there is always an unwritten requirement of “look sexy” and be fast.
This week my team and I at PSC successfully rolled out a new global application to a customer and here are some examples of the feedback we received within the first day or so:
I tried the new site only this morning and I have only one word: fantastic! It is very u [read] Keywords: domino

Multiple Chrome Incognito browsers share the same data
Sun, Nov 23rd 2014 7:15p Mark Roden In a previous post I talked about how going porn-mode on your browser is great for a developer. What I didn’t realize until today is that incognito mode is not as unique as I want it to be.
We use localStorage in one of the applications we are developing and I had issues when I was opening up multiple Chrome Incognito mode browsers, assuming they were unique….I wanted to compare separate instances in separate windows
Mr. Genius (Toby) pointed out to me that localStorage is shared a [read] Keywords: applications
