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!!

XPages – Saving data sources bound to a panel – a lesson learned
Wed, Oct 9th 2013 6:20p Mark Roden In this article I will highlight/document an issue which I came across today – using a Save Button and a Document Data source bound to a panel.
so this is what I learned today
When you have an xpages document data source bound to a panel
and a save button to “saveDocument”
The button must be within the panel – otherwise for absolutely no apparent reason it just does not work. I checked the form – yes data was being sub [read] Keywords: xpages widgets
Wed, Oct 2nd 2013 6:09a Mark Roden I am a late comer to the OpenNTF community as I have explained before this was more due to the circumstances of my job in the mid 2000s shifting me away from development but I restarted development in 2011 and have not looked back.
So I have no known Bruce personally for much more than 18 months but I have know “of” him for much longer (obviously).
Unknowingly Bruce was the second person (other than my friends) to ever follow me on twitter (more here) and even by that simple act that [read] Keywords: lotus
