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.

Capturing geodata in XPages
Fri, Nov 1st 2013 4:02a   Patrick Kwinten
In XPages it is not default possible to capture geodata information with any control so you are depending on services (not a problem if they provide the correct data).
