Another busy week where all focus was on getting our customer ready for the launch of their next release on 3 April. Again I've been a bit optimistic about my estimates but all it good and the customer is happy. They just signed an extension to our contract so we will probably be here until the end of the year. Great testament to the value we are providing. Next week I'm going to be two days in Stockholm and 3 days the following week in the week of the release. After that we have a short sprin

This week marked my 4th month at Salesforce! That's so crazy. 4 months already - where did the time go? Joining Salesforce was a big decision and since I joined the time has flown by. It has taken some time but I'm starting to feel at home in my new role in CSG here at Salesforce. As always change is hard and a change of job is no different. Well it's probably hard for me to say that as this is the first "real" job I've had as I've been self employed / co-owner of the company I've worked

Using preformatted HTML in a Salesforce Lightning Component
Fri, Mar 24th 2017 8:26a   Mikkel Heisterberg
Had to output preformatted HTML richtext from a richtext field in a Lighting Component the other day. Looking through the documentation I found the ui:outputRichText component but it didn't really work the way it's mentioned in the documentation. Instead of the body of the tag containing the HTML the HTML had to be in the value-attribute as shown below. The "bio" CSS class I added is to actually apply the formatting I need. Although the HTML contains the HTML tags the CSS on the Lighting

I am developing some Salesforce Lightning components at the moment as while Lightning Components are great they have a major drawback in my mind. Some background first... Salesforce Lightning is our "new" component based UI based on HTML / Javascript and components are automatically mobile ready and responsive. A Lightning Component is not a single "thing" but rather a folder with stuff that is a number of files named using a predefined format. The component name is the name of the folder -

For the Lightning Components I'm developing for a customer I'm using the activity timeline component to show a chronologic timeline of "stuff". However when I added the markup to my Lightning Component and ran it inside Salesforce the vertical bars were missing. What to do? Crack open the Chrome Developer Tools and inspect - but hey! Then the bars were there... Close Developer Tools and the bars were gone again. Hmmm... Seems to be a viewport height issues. But then again not... After qui

Week 16 brought my first full week budgeted at my customer and I was asked if I wanted to stay on for the rest of the year. I said "yes please!" and take it both as a pat on back for work well done as well a encouragement that I'm definitely heading in the right direction. The night I spent in Stockholm was spent on Trailhead as I really want to make Ranger. Ranger is awarded when one has earned 50k points and 100 badges. I'm well beyond the 50k points but need 20 more badges. I'm making a

A week with two days of travel although not going to Stockholm for a change. This weeks trip brought me to Amsterdam and our Regional Kickoff for the EMEA North region. First day was breakout sessions for the various divisions and then drinks and dinner. Day 2 was the main regional kickoff and after a mindfulness session and group massage we got started. All good fun, good information an a nice place to meet new people and colleagues. Only drawback was the hallways of the venue where the noice l

Short week as I had Thursday and Friday off - or PTO as we call vacation. But a great week. Monday and Tuesday I spent on-site in Stockholm and Monday night I finally got my act together and took the final certification exam of my onboarding and I'm very happy to report that I passed. Yay!! I now have passed all the 5 certifications I needed to pass. #happyDays It was also my first week of being billable at the customer which was great. Wednesday was spent in the home office. All good stuff!

Last week I spent two days at the customer site in Stockholm and 3 days at home in the home office. I think. Cannot really remember. Maybe I was in the office one of the days. Oh well :) It's starting to become normal to go to Stockholm and family life and work life is starting to work out. It seems like it will work for us. Customer project wise I almost finished the Lightning Component I've been working on for the customer and even made small changes to also make it work in Salesforce1. With
