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!!

Lowering your ODS – an oldie but goodie
Fri, Feb 7th 2014 6:14a Mark Roden After Connect this year I tried to post my Ext JS sample database on my demo site and most users were reporting unsupported notes version. I did some digging and it turns out that amongst everything else R9.0.1 has a newer ODS (52) and therefore would not run on a lower than R9.0.1 server/client.
So after much idiocy and locally encrypted stupidity on my part, I did a search around and found/remembered that you can reduce the ODS aaaaaall the way back to 20 by doing this

My thoughts on Connect 14 – What makes a good presentation?
Mon, Feb 3rd 2014 6:44p Mark Roden I wanted to write down some thoughts and ideas, notes almost, after watching the IBM Connect 2014 technical presentations.
Ultimately what I want to understand and be able to execute myself is – What makes a good presenter/presentation?
Let’s ignore the content for the moment. Last week I attended sessions where I was interested in the content but the delivery was poor. I also went to presentations where the content didn’t interest me but the presentation kept my attention. Fig [read] Keywords: ibm
