Unexpected results reading a plain text file with NotesStream in LotusScript (or when strings contain MORE than meet the eye)
Tue, Jul 4th 2017 3:05p   Robert Ibsen Voith
This is a little LotusScript experiment with a plain text file and a LotusScript agent using NotesStream. After reading the text from the file I try to use the string to locate a document with a corresponding key in a NotesView. While everything looks fine in the debugger, something is not correct and the lookups fail. This article has some suggestions for solutions at the end but they are not state-of-the-art! Perhaps you know other ways? First off, I have a super-simple plain text file with a

Is Bluetooth degrading?
Thu, Jun 22nd 2017 7:39a   Robert Ibsen Voith
Being a programmer I know how hard it can be to get software right. Sometimes it never “get right” and the software have to soar in the flux between working and not working. I my case I have an Apple iPhone 6S, connected to several Bluetooth devices such as a Garmin 235 watch, a couple of cars and a couple of headsets. Over the years I experience that the Bluetooth connections have more and more problems. For example I can see that my Garmin 235 watch suddenly has a severe battery

ISBG Spring Seminar Success!
Fri, Jun 9th 2017 8:28a   Robert Ibsen Voith
ISBG (The Norwegian IBM Software User Group) has just finished it’s 19th Spring Seminar (“Vår seminar”) in Oslo, Norway. For two, intense days, the 50+ attendees has witnessed 15 top-notch sessions. The conference were staged in the offices of PwC in Oslo, very close to the main railway station, and just two blocks away from the hotel. In other words, pretty easy to get to the conference. Many of the earlier ISBG Spring seminars have had different tracks with parallell sess

In the start of May 2017, one family-member suddenly experienced “No internet, secured” message hovering over the network icon down in the tray icon area. Sure enough, her machine wasn’t visible on my TeamViewer control panel either, so she was definitely off the grid. Why did her Windows 10 machine suddenly decide to drop network connection? As always, I start to search the net for similar cases, and as always, tons of different results pop up. All sorts of suggestions too, wi

Over the years I have attended many Lotuspheres and the latter IBM Connects. What I really enjoyed in the first Lotuspheres, were the intense depth of some of the sessions. Remember C API sessions with difficulty settings? Tree dots meant the real deal! Well, those days are over and generally Lotusphere has become more and more a marketing event. Not necessarily a bad thing, but not the same as “back then” Over the last years I have seen that the Belgium Engage-conference has gotten

How to get XPages and Bootstrap3_xxx themes to work (or how to check that XPages is correctly installed)?
Tue, Mar 21st 2017 4:07p   Robert Ibsen Voith
Warning – Not that experienced XPages programmer here   I have been fiddling around with the Single Page Application control in XPages, but I never got it to work properly with the Bootstrap3, or Bootstrap3_flat themes. In fact it only worked with OneUI before FP8. I supect that I have some issue with XPages on the server. Below you see a screen shot of the result in Chrome; My question is therefore – Does anybody know how to check if XPages is is properly installed on the ser

Note to self; "Unable to find valid target platform" means "hey, install the core product first" when installing the Notes client
Tue, Mar 21st 2017 7:23a   Robert Ibsen Voith
Unfortunately I managed to completely wreck my Notes client install and and thus I had to reinstall it from scratch. To be completely sure that there wasn’t any remains left from the old installation, I ran the “Notes Install Cleanup Executable” (NICE) tool found here. So far so good, and Notes vanished from my computer. Perhaps it has been too long since I had to install Notes from scratch, so my first attempt was to just fire up the latest and greatest Notes FP8 client insta

Thu, Mar 16th 2017 1:25p   Robert Ibsen Voith
After installing the latest and greatest FP8, I realized that the Extension Library shifted a lot of components from ExtLibX into the ExtLib. One thing I can’t seem to find any more is the “Mobile controls” – which contained the “Single Page Application” wizard amongst other things. Does anybody know the whereabouts of the Mobile controls in the post-FP8 world?

Ahhh, feels good to have FP8 (and iNotes working again) in place!
Thu, Mar 9th 2017 10:22a   Robert Ibsen Voith
For some reason the client installer would’t run smoothly unless I killed NSD first (had this problem back with FP5 too). Well, with NSD out of the way, the new version installed without hickups. On the server, everything went smooth! Took a while longer (approx 15-20 minutes) compared to other updates, but that doesn’t matter as long as the install works! And, finally the iNotes client worked again!

Fri, Mar 3rd 2017 12:35p   Robert Ibsen Voith
Have you ever seen a bunch of these in your Domino log-database? If so, you are the victim of attempted SMTP Hacking. It means that someone is trying to log on to your server via the SMTP protocol. SMTP was primarily constructed for functionality and not so much security Unnecessarily to say, it is a waste of cycles to have all this traffic hit your server, not to mention what could happen if they ever succeed entering the system! Obviously the perpetrators uses some sort of directory attack t

How to use quickly get a nice looking month-calendar together with SmartNSF
Fri, Feb 24th 2017 4:20p   Robert Ibsen Voith
Have you ever wanted to get a nice looking month-calendar based on your Domino data? Sure you have! Perhaps something like this; This is my short take on how to use the fullcalendar.io javascript event calendar together with the fresh SmartNSF-tool from Christian G??demann on OpenNTF. Here you see the end-result (go to June to see some data if interested). Many others have done similar things to make Domino stuff its data into calendars of different kinds, so the only new thing here is that

How to setup Gmail's smtp.gmail.com as the outgoing mail server on both Domino and on iOS
Wed, Feb 22nd 2017 2:59p   Robert Ibsen Voith
One of the fun things with software, and perhaps especially server software, is that there is lots of ways to get things done. Sometimes you just drown in settings, configurations and restarts. Suddenly things start to work, and you really don't know exactlywhat fixed the problem! This is a story along those lanes, and I write about primarily to remember the steps for later for my own part. Perhaps it can be beneficiary to others too. From having my own Domino server and using it fo

Classic LotusScript: When 100.0 isn"t 100.0 anymore?!
Tue, Feb 21st 2017 4:48p   Robert Ibsen Voith
Today I had to debug some old code, and when doing so I stumbled over something which I found strange. LotusScript would not consider the value 100 equal to the value 100 … Let me explain with some simple code (you can click on every image to get a larger one by the way); I put the above code in a test-agent. Marked by 1, I set my reference value to the value 100 (and yes, by purpose I don’t use the forced floating point notation 100.0) Marked by 2, I fill my array of 12 doubles wi

Does anybody have a cure for extremely small fonts in some incoming mails?
Wed, Sep 14th 2016 12:00p   Robert Ibsen Voith
For some reason I have extremely small fonts in the news mails from Twitter. I haven’t seen the problem elsewhere. Below you see how the mail looks in the preview pane. It is the same when opening the mail. In am on FP7 of Notes 9.0.1.
