jQuery in XPages #1 – Highcharts
MarkyRoden    

I am delighted to present the first in my series of articles highlighting some extremely cool jQuery plugins and how to integrate them within XPages. During the course of the articles I will always demonstrate at least at some level, basic integration with XPages. In many cases I will not be able to cover all the examples of everything possible with each plugin, but I hope to give at least a good teaser to the possibilities and  show the myriad of possibilities.

I have to also say a HUGE thank you to David Leedy (www.notesin9.com) who is hosting my demonstration for this and the rest of this series when I get to them.

So without further ad0 – welcome to jQuery in XPages #1 :)

Highcharts

For full disclosure, Highcharts is not free for commercial use.
“Do you want to use Highcharts for a personal or non-profit project? Then you can use Highchcarts for free under the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial 3.0 License.”.

But part of the reason I chose it as the #1 is because it really rocks well with an XPage environment. It has direct business applicability, unlike many other jQuery plugins which are pretty, but hardly “corporate”. The format and structure of the chart instantiation also jibes well with XPages and I was able to create a custom control which can be applied to any formatted viewPanel or dataTable.

The Demo

Here is the demonstration site

and here is the demo dataabase

Link download the demo database

In the example below you can see a simple form with a viewPanel. Adding a new value to the form refreshes the page and displays the value entered. The exact same functionality would be seen if I had a basic data table looking at the same view of data.

The Example

Initial XPages form

Initial XPages form

Submitting the form gives us our new value

XPage with new Apples value added

XPage with new Apples value added

The XPage is laid out very simply and our View control is called viewPanel1

View Panel on the XPage

We add the drawHighchart Custom Control to the XPage

Adding the drawHighchart custom control to the page

And let’s refresh our webpage – et voila – a chart

Changing the chart type is as simple as selecting a new theme and/or a new chart type

Chart Directives and Dynamic Binding – MWLUG 2014 preview
Wed, Aug 20th 2014 7:13p   Mark Roden
Although not directly related to the purpose of the presentation I am going to demonstrate how to use an Angular.js chart directive to bind to the application service data and create dynamic charting within the application. Changing the Zip for 1 Marky not only updates the data displayed – but also because of the data bind – auto-magically updates the chart While this in itself does not directly relate to the write once and run anywhere nature of the presentation – it d [read] Keywords: application

Accessing the original element when using Select2-focus
Sun, Aug 17th 2014 7:36p   Mark Roden
In the application we are currently working on I wanted to add an ajax call to a JSON service, but only for certain fields. Rather than go through the application and add the code to every element I used a delegated focus event for the field with an attribute of  “help_fieldName”. The following HTML represents the code on the form: UK US Global First Name Last Name The following jQuery code makes it work. The getHelp function shows/hides [read] Keywords: ajax application xml

Angular in XPages #8 – Directives (did someone say plugins?)
Sun, Aug 10th 2014 8:08p   Mark Roden
In this article I will discuss Angular Directives and why they are near and dear to my heart Directives Directives in Angular are modular pieces of functionality which in some cases are very analogous to plugins in jQuery. According to the Angular documentation… “At a high level, directives are markers on a DOM element (such as an attribute, element name, comment or CSS class) that tell AngularJS’s HTML compiler ($compile) to attach a specified behavior to that DOM element or [read] Keywords: xpages application css

Angular.js in XPages #7 – Writing better code using Services
Sun, Aug 3rd 2014 6:01p   Mark Roden
In this article I will discuss a better programming practice for Angular.js than was demonstrated in the previous articles within this series. I have mentioned before, part of the purpose this blog is very much a “learning in progress” for me. Without going through the previous articles I would not have been able to get to this point and write “better code”. Hopefully with that understanding, those of you who have been along for the ride will appreciate this and grow w [read] Keywords: agent lotusscript xpages application twitter

As Russ Maher said today in Hey Who got the Handsome Champion it is an honor and a privilege to not only be recognized by IBM as a Champion for ICS 2014, but you also get some very cool stuff. Thanks to Amanda Bauman and Oliver Heinz for organizing “the champions” and all the gear. I just wonder what I am going to do with all of it :) Seriously though, I am very humbled to be an IBM Champion ! Thank you to everyone who nominated me and made this possible :) [read] Keywords: ibm

Web Components – the future You should first ground yourself on Web Components and read this article on Web Components and concepts, ShadowDOM, imports, templates, custom elements by Todd Motto. Then listen to this Podcast (thanks to Steve for pointing it out) - Web Components with Peter Gasston Once you have read/listened you will have some idea and concept about Web Components and how they are the future…..
