It allows you to visualize the DOM in a 3D way so you can see the node containers from top to bottom. The possibilities are endless. it also allows you to visualize the STYLE sheets and DOM in a way firebug can only dream of….

WOW

An open letter to Mr. NotesIn9

Dear Mr Leedy, I regret to inform you that your blatant use of child labor has offended my child labor union. They do not feel like you have represented me in the correct light. I trust that you will find this short response in the same light as your original offense. yours faithfully, Your very good friend Marky Roden CC: everyone who has seen this video http://notesin9.com/index.php/2014/03/31/notesin9-141-java-vs-javascript-throwdown/ [read] Keywords: java javascript

Picture this: I have been away for 5 days and during that time “someone” has been posting cryptic comments on twitter about how the next notesin9 is going to be different….and scaring me. So I am waiting at the airport this afternoon, about to board my plane home and I get this link from this “friend” who tells me to watch the new video it and enjoy. I download it and watch it on the plane. People start to look at me funny as I start to snort and giggle at my phone. [read] Keywords: ibm xpages application integration javascript twitter

Sun, Mar 30th 2014 12:41p   Mark Roden
Last week I posted why JavaScript is more critical a skill to learn than Java. There was an outpouring of comments, discussion and responses unlike any I have seen in a while. To give a little more background as to why I decided to post: I was not to be antagonistic or instigate a storm in a tea cup. It was because for the third time in 2014 I had been told by a notes developer something along the lines of “I can’t learn XPages because I have read that you need to learn Java and I do [read] Keywords: notes xpages blogging community java javascript

Why learning JavaScript is more critical to XPage developers than Java
Wed, Mar 26th 2014 5:14p   Mark Roden
I have tried to write this article multiple times over the last 2 years, when I read it back to myself it always sounds like I am bitching. Honestly, I usually am and that is why it has not been published. This is a final attempt at a constructive argument against the insistence on many blogs that everyone should learn Java. Many people think I hate Java; I really don’t. I can program Java (I am no expert admittedly) and have done so on multiple occasions. My concerns are always raised whe [read] Keywords: domino ibm lotus notes notes client R4 xpages ajax application applications community css database development dojo google interface java javascript network server websphere xml

PATCHing a Document using Domino Data Service
Mon, Mar 24th 2014 7:11p   Mark Roden
Talk about frustrating – in a week full of slow progress and CORS cross domain hell I found this little annoyance after hours of staring and curing – once again the power of trial and error triumphs over my stupidity again. The problem I have a Domino Data Service running on the server and I want to update a document This is the imaginary URL https://xomino.com/issues.nsf/api/data/documents/unid/FDCA9C28A793D3F785257C4D0068BBCA returning the imaginary data just fine { "@href": [read] Keywords: domino ibm ajax application java server

How to ad icons to individual items in a Select2 multi-value field
Tue, Mar 18th 2014 8:08p   Mark Roden
Select2 is one of the best user interface enhancers I have come across – if you do not know what it is then you need to go play with it. It transforms SELECT boxes into dynamic, stunning, interactive UI elements and allows for all sorts of customizations and developer fun. What I want to be able to do is select items from different categories within the select2 box and then add an icon displaying to the user which category they came from. In this article I will show how.

My ongoing struggle with stupidity and what is not valid JSON
Sun, Mar 16th 2014 6:06p   Mark Roden
So this was a frustrating lesson to learn – and please feel free to be entertained by my apparent stupidity. I was trying to create my own JSON with an xAgent – seems easy enough. I created a simple output which looked like this { 'items': [ { 'name': 'AK', 'dc': 23 } ] } and when I fed it through my AJAX code it failed. $.ajax({ dataType: 'json', url: "http://copper.xomino.com/xomino/ExtjsBigData.nsf/xState.xsp?query="+query //url: 'http://coppe [read] Keywords: ajax google javascript

Manually Setting Domino Database Properties through DDE
Sun, Mar 9th 2014 6:27p   Mark Roden
This gets filed under the “I am writing this because I know I am going to forget it, and will need it again” We had a problem in a database whereby we were checking to see if document locking was enabled and if not then it gets programmatically enabled. This reference document from IBM tells you how it can be done in LotusScript. This was done to the database which was deployed around the world. Is there a way to programmatically change Database Properties for a database? 'Set th [read] Keywords: domino dxl ibm lotusscript xpages database eclipse properties

Why using XPages Partial Refresh is sometimes easy for developers and bad for users
Tue, Mar 4th 2014 6:14p   Mark Roden
In this article I will discuss the potential issues of using using a Partial Refresh in XPages and how developer addiction and dependency on it is bad for users. Introduction This is the hardest blog post I have written – and I have written and destroyed it about 5 times before this one. Too many times I have come across what I consider to be poor design choices. I am always motivated to write when I am annoyed and rant and whine about how the over use of Partial Refresh is easy for XPag [read] Keywords: domino ibm notes xpages ajax application development dojo google interface java javascript properties server
