Using XControls for developing cards-based UI for mobile and desktop applications
Fri, Jan 9th 2015 6:05a   Patrick Kwinten
Introduction For a project I reviewed several frameworks to deliver a web interface. Among them was XControls which is a project on OpenNTF. XControls promises to deliver: Faster design and assembly of modern user interfaces, using Card & List objects. Easy the auto-optimization for smartphones, tablets and PCs. XControls is built with Bootstrap and the Bootcards project. Bootcards Bootcards is a cards-based UI and it is built on top of Bootstrap. Unlike most other UI frameworks, it

Custom control to display a My Communities list
Wed, Oct 22nd 2014 8:45a   Patrick Kwinten
In the managed bean I described in an earlier post there was a method to return a list of communities in IBM Connections where the authenticated user is member of (getMyCommunities()). So what can you do with it? In IBM Connections when you section Communities I’m a Member you get to see a list with communities you particpate in, along some sub data for each community: Social Business Toolkit API I find the following link the best resource to discover the details of the SBT API.

(extended) Managed Bean for SBT SDK
Tue, Oct 21st 2014 8:45a   Patrick Kwinten
In a previous post I mentioned my blogpost ‘Developing social applications with the Social Business Toolkit SDK‘. In the post I defined a managed bean to connect to the Files service  and return data via the getMyFiles method. In this post I will extend that bean to access other services in IBM Connections: Activity Stream Blogs Bookmarks Communities Files Forums Profiles Later I will refine the ServiceBean object with new methods derived from the ones available in the SBT SDK.

Developing social applications with the Social Business Toolkit SDK
Mon, Oct 20th 2014 4:05a   Patrick Kwinten
Last week I have posted a blog item on the company blog, which you can read here. In this post I take you through the first steps how to enable a IBM Notes application to integrate with IBM Connections via the Social Business Toolkit SDK using XPages. Learning Connections I have the idea to build a set of custom controls which would allow you to quickly create mash-up applications to interact with IBM Connections and include them back in Connections or run them as stand alone apps. This approac

I decided last minute to take usage of the early bird rate for IBM ConnectED. Since the event has this time more focus on technical content and a pre-release of Mail Next I have a feeling this edition will be of great value.

Social Connections VII will be held in the stunning city of Stockholm in Sweden on Thursday 13th and Friday 14th November, 2014. Since I work for Infoware, a company who will be sponsoring the event in order to promote their IBM Connections management tool called Domain Patrol Social I would like to highlight this event on my blog.

Icon UK (retrospect)
Sun, Sep 28th 2014 9:25a   Patrick Kwinten
On the Friday 12th of September 2014, I attended the Icon UK in the IBM Southbank Customer Centre, London. This review is a bit late since the attendance was part of my vacation. Achieving Developer Nirvana With Codename BlueMix BlueMix is a platform for composing and running virtually any application in the cloud without having to worry about the hardware, software, and networking needed to do so. This means that developers can be left to do what they do best….CODE! By eliminating the need to

OpenNTF is a rich environment for developers and administrators to express and share their ideas, hopes and believes regarding the IBM Notes Domino platform. Everyone’s contribution is valuable and treated with respect. As contributor director I bring my experience from both Notes customer and ISV side to this great community. I have decided to nominate myself as contributor candidate for the OpenNTF board. The voting ends October 1 so hurry up in case you have not voted yet. The reason f

Internationalization of the Pager controls
Mon, Sep 1st 2014 5:45a   Patrick Kwinten
While translating an app for internationalization I noticed that Pager controls (e.g Pager Expand/Collapse, Pager Show/Hide Details)) were still default in English. So I wondered how you could translate them since they did not adapt to the selected language in my browser? It turns out that a workable way is to set the text explicit in the controls first to your default application language: Now they have become available for translation: If you open the properties file for the XPage/Custom C

Tip of the day: isDocument() for nested data in the Data View control
Wed, Aug 13th 2014 5:05a   Patrick Kwinten
You can show nested data in the details section of the Data View control. Read about it here: Data Views – Part 10: Nested Repeat in the Detail Section. In case you have a ‘flat’ Data View (one without collapisble categories) you do not need to detect if your ‘var’ property is a document. But when you have a categorized Data View you better check it otherwise opening/closing categories will give an error…

New project on OpenNTF: DB Manager Notifier
Wed, Jul 2nd 2014 9:05a   Patrick Kwinten
Today I created a new project on OpenNTF called ‘DB Manager Notifier‘. The application is a tool that can send periodically notifications to persons who are listed as Manager in an Application document in the catalog.nsf on your IBM Domino server. A typical use case is a Development or Sandbox environment where users are free to install new applications. In such loosely managed environments people tend to “forget” their applications and leave them installed on the server.

Demo of the Single Page Application Control wizard

You can bring a IBM Notes application without much work to the web browser via the Notes Browser plugin. But since Mobile is the standard nowadays that plugin seems to be obsolete almost. So what other options do you have for your enterprise apps? You can introduce a mobile application platform, if you have the time and the money. You can migrate your whole collaboration platform in exchange for something less, similar or not similar at all. And prey for mobile tools on that platform. You can

Adding search to an application with XPages interface (quickly)

For a project I was asked to deliver a new user interface for the web browser with the help of XPages. This included a search functionality. First step: Look on OpenNTF OpenNTF is a great resource to check if someone has done development before and has made the code available for public. Here are some results that offer some form of search out of the box: Advanced Search XPage Control (link) Xpages Multi Database Search Custom Control (link) Xpage Search And Tagcloud control (link) XPages Basi

Tag cloud with data from another application
Mon, Jun 23rd 2014 6:45a   Patrick Kwinten
For a project I needed a tag cloud to provide some alternative navigation to a view. Easy I thought; such control is part of the XPages extension library. However it turns out that this control does not support to use a view from another application/database as the data-source. Some examples I found (1), (2), (3) required some work anyway so I wrote a quick prototype based upon the tag cloud component described in the OneUI documentation. The tag cloud is really simple but for now it does the

New app in town: Rooms & Connections
Mon, Jun 16th 2014 4:25a   Patrick Kwinten
This post is for all your IBM Notes users: I assume you all have experienced the problem of finding an available room when you register a new entry in your calendar. Especially with spontaneous meetings it is frustrating not be able to find a room, and if you check at the physical location the room seems to be empty. You have then the option to start/open your laptop, open one or more the resource reservation applications and find out who has booked the room, contact the person and ask if he/she

JQM & Domino Data Service (3)
Mon, Jun 2nd 2014 6:08a   Patrick Kwinten
In a previous post I demonstrated how to populate a listview for jQuery Mobile from a Notes view via Domino Data Service. In this post I will show how to include a ‘More’ button to load additional loading of more items for the listview and display them. For this you need to make changes in 2 places: mobile.xsp employeelist.js employeelist.js In the JavaScript file we need to modify the initial getEmployeeList function and include a new function to load more employees from the li

Tue, May 27th 2014 4:45a   Patrick Kwinten
In a previous post I demonstrated how to use Domino Data Service (as part of Domino Access Service) to populate a listview for jQuery Mobile. Probably the real-world application you want to mobilize has multiple layers of data that is common in Notes (multiple forms & views). I followed Christophe Coenraets’s example and re-used it for the fakenames application. First let me show you what you get: At first an overview of the People’s view is presented, from here the

listview in JQuery Mobile via Domino Access Service
Tue, May 20th 2014 4:05a   Patrick Kwinten
Here follows an quick example how to create a listview in JQM created with data from a view via DAS.

I have not really find out (yet) how to add the next set of documents when you scroll down the list (to be continued, or drop the solution in the comments or send me an email). $.ajax({ url: 'ht

Better defaults were created for certain Wizard options. The Document Viewer label position was changed to “above.” The default CRUD options are a big time sav

I have started at a new company and they didn’t have an XIC (XPages Information Center) so my XPages Knowledge db needed to be installed (a regular Notes db for quickly copying & pasting rich text, snippets, storing sample applications, multiple media files). The database is a couple of years old so it needed some updates. One was to hide a “files section” from printing in case there are no files attached. I noticed embedded images start with an “ST” naming in
