#XPages: tagcloud control can not reside in custom control?
Patrick Kwinten    

I am currently testing 8.5.3+ (upgrade pack 1) and as a use case I am rebuilding Viewr available on OpenNTF.

My first impression on Designer’s behaviour is not really positive, I believe my 8.5.2 installation is more stable than the 8.5.3 one.

Nevertheless, it rises some Xpages related questions for example the next one:

I am trying to develop more via components, that is custom controls that will be steered via property definitions. I have created a custom control to display a widget component (oneUi). The widget contains a editable area so for each instance of the widget I can add custom content.

What I’ve tried is to create a custom control for a tagcloud, where the tagcloud (control from the ext. library) is steered via the property definition.

This works well AS LONG as the tagcloud does not reside in the editable area of the widget cc. When I place the tagcloud in the widget cc and preview locally the Xpage that contains the tagcloud cc Designer crashes.

I do not understand the cause of it. Maybe you can explain what I am doing wrong???

Image: the tagcloud custom control. It contains the widget custom control and the tagcloud control.

 

Image: here is how it looks in Designer. The tag control not residing within the widget custom control.

 

Image: How I want it to be: the tagcloud control residing within the widget custom control.

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 [read] Keywords: notes rich text xpages applications database linkedin

Funny, but a motive when moving to Sweden was to combine work with a bit of holiday. Recently I signed up for the Engage event and will do it the other way around in the Netherlands: combine holiday with a bit of work. I am looking forward to the event because of it’s great line-up. I am curious how the ‘collaboration market’ nowadays looks like in the Netherlands and Belgium and what the opportunities are. [read] Keywords: collaboration

Single Page Application tutorial
Mon, Feb 17th 2014 8:02a   Patrick Kwinten
After watching the video on YouTube on the Single Page Application wizard I became curious and decided to take a test and mobilize an application myself. I choose the infamous “fake names” application for this. I have written a blog article/tutorial about it. Here you can read it: ‘Single Page Application Wizard‘. Summary With the Single Page Application control you can rapidly mobilize a Notes application. The wizard is intuitive although you need to understand some b [read] Keywords: notes notes client application development mobile

With IBMConnect about to start I updated my collection of blog posts about the XPages technology. I started collecting in 2009, directly after Lotusphere where it was one of the highlights at the show. I remember that the blogosphere exploded after/during Declan Sciolla-Lynch‘s tutorial. The earliest post about XPages I have collected is  HND 102: IBM Lotus Domino Designer in Eclipse: Create and Work with XPages Hands On (January 2008). The latest post that I added yesterday is ‘ [read] Keywords: domino ibm lotus lotusphere xpages eclipse wiki

I bet everybody enjoyed David Leedy’s Use SourceTree for better XPages Source Control video-tutorial. At the time I was looking at SourceTree so David’s guidance came in the right time. To assist my fellow colleague developers I wrote a document or some sort of manual on using SourceTree for source control and I used David’s tutorial for a transcript. I hope you enjoy reading it.

I needed to setup a new development environment because we moved recently from Windows XP to Win7 (yihaa! I am a corporate developer). Because my ‘closest to administrator’ like co-developer (an ex-admin who we have convinced to development!) is on parental leave I had to clear the job myself. This is how far I came so far: Virtualbox machine Virtual hard drive of 25 GB; will probably create a new clone from this machine for each new project OS: win7 IBM Domino 9.0.1 Social Edition [read] Keywords: admin administration domino ibm notes xpages development server

Using Bootstrap in XPages – The ultimate incomplete guide
Tue, Jan 7th 2014 3:05a   Patrick Kwinten
This document describes how to integrate the popular front-end framework Twitter Bootstrap with XPages. The purpose is to provide developers an introduction to use Twitter Bootstrap in XPages development projects by building an actual application. Below you can find a document/manual I started to write a while ago but I never finished (I guess there is no finish since new boundaries are explored every day). At least the document should give you a head start with using ‘raw’ (Twitter) [read] Keywords: xpages application development openntf twitter

Updated eCard app on OpenNTF
Mon, Dec 9th 2013 2:22p   Patrick Kwinten
I received some comments on the eCard app on OpenNTF: A overlooked the middle fingers suggestion a Santa makes on the default image (dumb dumb). I never tested in IE (out of scope).

eCard XPages app – Time for your seasonal greetings !
Wed, Dec 4th 2013 3:06a   Patrick Kwinten
The last days I have spent some hours in the evenings to learn me Bootstrap in combination with XPages as bit more. The result is a basic eCard application on XPages which utilizes Bootstrap 2 for UI. Since the Advent Calendar has started I guess you are allowed to start sending out your seasonal greetings You can find the app as a project on OpenNTF (link to project). I noticed a card is not working properly in IE yet (what did I expect?). I will see if I can fix this on the short term. O [read] Keywords: xpages application openntf wiki
