Remove forward or copy protection of a mail with Document Spy
Tue, Aug 18th 2015 8:09a   Ralf Petter
Sometimes i get e-mails from very nice users which thinks that there mails are so super confidential, that the set the $KeepPrivate flag on their mail. Every time you want to do something like forward, print or even copy paste with such a mail you will get the error message that this is not allowed. Fortunately with the mighty Document Spy this is very easy to solve. Open the Document Spy in the sidebar and select the mail in the UI. Search for the field "$KeepPrivate" in the Document Spy t

Create a Heapdump of the JVM running the Notes standard client

Normally the Garbage Collection of the JVM works without problems, but sometimes caused by programming mistakes the Garbage Collector can not free heap memory and the heap grows and grows till an OutOfMemory Exception is thrown. The best way to find such problems is to use a Heap Analyzer like Eclipse MAT. Before you can use the Heap Analyzer you have to get a heap dump from Notes with these simple steps. Open a command lineChange the current directory to the frameworkrcp directory in your note

Click Plug-in Details to open the list of all installed plugins. You get an list of all installed plugins with detailed version information's. To find the plugins i have provided sort the list with a click on the provider column header and scroll down to "Ralf M Petter"

How to use the new snapshot functionality in the document spy to reverse engineer features in Notes
Sun, Aug 16th 2015 12:28p   Ralf Petter
Today i want to show you how the new snapshot feature in the Document Spy can help you to understand how features in Notes works and how you can re implement such features in your own apps. As an example i show you which fields of an e-mail changes when you set a follow up flag on this particular mail. The first step is open the Document Spy in the sidebar view and select the e-mail you want to use for your analysis. All fields of the e-mail will be shown in the document spy. Create a snapshot

I have got no bug reports for Document Spy 1.2.0 Beta so i have removed the Beta tag from this version and release it as the Production release of this version. If you have already downloaded the Beta there is no need to reinstall it, because the final version is 100% identical to the Beta version.

Drag & Drop install of widgets does not work with new Microsoft Edge browser
Wed, Aug 5th 2015 6:26a   Ralf Petter
A user from France sent me a bug report, that the installation of widgets like the Document Spy does not work when you drag and drop the widget from Microsoft Edge browser to the My widget sidebar panel of IBM Notes. (You can drag the link, but nothing happens when you drop it) As a workaround you can use Firefox or Chrome which works on Windows 10 without problems. In the moment i do not have a Windows 10 installation to analyze this problem, but i hope that i will get a Windows 10 machine soo

New Beta Version of the Document Spy available
Mon, Aug 3rd 2015 2:54p   Ralf Petter
Last weekend the weather was not so nice in Grundlsee and so i decided to code a new feature for the document Spy. It enables the document spy to create snapshots of documents and then compare this snapshot with changes have been made to the document since the snapshot was captured. For example i can take a snapshot of a mail and then set the follow-up flag in the mail ui. The Document spy will then show me which fields in the document has been changed from this action. This is very handy to rev
