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

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

Practice what you preach – be fast and look sexy
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!

BTE 102: The Future of Web Development Write Once, Run Everywhere with AngularJS and Domino
Tue, Dec 16th 2014 5:33a   Mark Roden
Mark Leusink and I are very excited to be presenting a session at ConnectED this coming January. This is a great opportunity to come and find out about something a little different from the normal XPages run of the mill development. Mark and I will provide an introduction to the concepts and structure behind Angular.js, and then demonstrate how to build a very simple yet useful application using Angular.js and a Domino data store. We are also going to blow some minds by showing the same ap [read] Keywords: collaboration connections domino ibm xpages application development javascript

Angular in XPages: Formatting Domino Data Services Date values with app.filter
Sun, Dec 14th 2014 7:39p   Mark Roden
In this article I will show how we can use the core angular date filter capabilities to format Date format, Domino data into an Angular.js based application Introduction In previous articles I have shown how to create a simple Angular.js application using a notes Domino Data Services feed from a notes database. If we want to add “date” information then we need a way to nicely format it. Using the Angular.js documentation page as reference I will show you how we can do this with Do [read] Keywords: domino notes xpages application database google xml

Websockets in XPages: Improving on the automated partialRefresh interface
Tue, Dec 9th 2014 5:59p   Mark Roden
In this article I will further discuss how tom improve the user experience of an automated partial Refresh on an user’s XPage. Although these posts were originally about using Bluemix to host the node.js server I kinda feel that the focus has drifted onto websockets more than Bluemix. So in an attempt to make it easier to find I am going to use the Websockets in XPages title moniker for a few posts and then go back to Bluemix :) Introduction In the last article we looked at how to push [read] Keywords: xpages application css interface server wiki

XPages and Bluemix: Pushing out data changes through automated partialRefresh
Sun, Dec 7th 2014 7:32p   Mark Roden
In this article I will demonstrate how using targeted websockets messages we are able to refresh user data on pertinent screens within an application, and keep user’s data up to date. Introduction In previous articles I have discussed the creation of a nodejs websockets service within Bluemix and how we are able to send messages to specific web pages using the socket.io rooms capability. Both of those examples were proofs of concept and the messages were generated in the browser via fireb [read] Keywords: xpages ajax application applications css javascript server xml

XPages and Bluemix: Sending a targeted Websockets message to specific XPages
Sun, Nov 30th 2014 6:51p   Mark Roden
In this article I will demonstrate how the use of socket.io “rooms” enables us to send message to users who are only accessing specific pages within our application, rather than blanket messages to all users. Introduction In the previous article I demonstrated how to use a message POST to the node.js server which could then be turned into a chat message and sent out to all users. While this is a nice example it only serves as such and does not have significant business value.

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

Got non-XPages design elements? You really should use WebContent.
Mon, Nov 17th 2014 7:20p   Mark Roden
Recently I was able to help explain an issue Russ Maher was having with his application png files - http://xpagetips.blogspot.com/2014/11/got-png-you-may-get-problems.html. It got me thinking that as modern web developers (which is what XPage developers need to be), we should not be using Domino database elements for “web elements”. Back before R8 we all used the Database Files, Style sheets and Database Images as a way to reference files as part of the database. I now believe w [read] Keywords: domino R8 xpages application applications css database development server
