Notes error: Field is too large (32k) or ....
Mon, Sep 24th 2012 6:16a   Tom Steenbergen
"Notes error: Field is too large (32k) or View's column & selection formulas are too large". I ran accross this error last week and it took a while to solve, as the error is not as descriptive as it seems. The error occurred in a lotusscript agent while updating a document after receiving and processing an xml response from a webservice. As the agent is not dealing with changing views or view selection formulas, the problem had to be at field level. Initially the error indicated its locat [read] Keywords: agent ibm lotusscript notes rich text richtext blogger xml

"Invalid or nonexistent document" on embedded object on form
Wed, Apr 11th 2012 6:11a   Tom Steenbergen
There seems to be a problem with embedded objects stored in the design of a form. I recently came accross this bug at a client site. They use an embedded word document object on a form to allow the users to create templates for letters. These letters are used on the dossiers they handle for their customers/clients. This problem or bug is introduced with the latest release of Lotus Notes, 8.5.3. The bug only occurs when creating new documents based on the form.

agent.RunOnServer - cannot create automated object
Wed, Dec 21st 2011 6:09a   Tom Steenbergen
The other day I had to make some changes to process an incoming html page containing client data from a paid service. To limit the access to this service, it can only be called from the domino servers. And is currently done through a scheduled agent. But now some users also need to be able to call the service on demand. To keep the restriction of calling only from a domino server I created a lotusscript button that runs the process via an agent.RunOnServer call.

Xsnippets - do not reinvent the wheel
Tue, Nov 22nd 2011 1:10p   Tom Steenbergen
A gem for code sharing was lauched about a month ago on OpenNTF, XSnippets. It contains small re-usable chunks of code related to Xpages. The UI is very simple and userfriendly and finding that codefragment you need in your next project should not be a problem. The code snippets are even colour coded. Hopefully all those great contributors of code to the Notes Domino community will gradually copy their pieces of code to this site. That would make XSnippets the place to look first and avoid rein [read] Keywords: domino notes xpages blogger community openntf

Xpages Internationalisation
Mon, Oct 10th 2011 7:11a   Tom Steenbergen
Working in Europe for a multinational, providing a multi-lingual website is not an option, it is a must. So the option for internationalisation in Xpages is very welcome. The standard xpages localisation option (in the application properties) creates a properties file per specified language per custom control/xpage. Works great, but it does create a lot of maintenance work if things needs changing afterwards or when you add a language. There is another option available which is not as automated [read] Keywords: ldd lotus xpages application blogger development properties wiki

Keep view position between (x)pages
Wed, Sep 28th 2011 6:13a   Tom Steenbergen
By default xpages doesnot keep the position of the view (pageno.) when going to another page. So when you go back to the view page from another page, the view will display from the first entry (and page) again. Not very userfriendly if you had just left it from page 3. You will have to make the view page remember its position by storing the number of the first row on the page in a scoped variable. In the "beforeRenderResponse" event add the following code: var c = getComponent("viewPanel [read] Keywords: xpages blogger properties wiki

Final version of DbLookupArray & DbColumnArray
Tue, Sep 13th 2011 1:09p   Tom Steenbergen
Time to post the final version (I think) of the DbLookupArray and DbColumnArray functions, which I started blogging about a couple of months ago. To date these functions only worked on the current database. So now I have added the option to also execute on another database on another server (beware that proper authorisation is in place). The server will only be used when a database name is provided.

Another "repeat control" encounter - multivalue fields
Mon, Aug 15th 2011 6:08a   Tom Steenbergen
Beginning of this year I reported about some problems I encountered with repeat controls getting data from @DbLookup and @DbColumn. Specifically if the returned results were a single value. These are not returned as arrays. The other week I encountered a similar thing while displaying a multivalue field through a repeat control. Here is the catch: although the field is declared multivalue on the Notes form, when accessing in Xpages a multivalue field containing a single value is not passed as a [read] Keywords: dblookup notes xpages blogger

Typo in code - dbcolumn !!

Had a sametime chat yesterday via BleedYellow started by Ed x Sanford with a question about a post from end of march on dblookup and dbcolumn in Xpages. The cache setting is not working on the dbcolumn code, why? A glance at the code quickly learned that indeed the dbcolumn code would never cache. The problem was in the second (actual) line of code. The "not" ! should not be there. Thanks Ed for contacting me. The code snippets on the original blog entries have been changed accordingly.

Lotus Notes client SSO problem

After rebuilding my laptop end of last year for some reason the single signon, although installed, did not work as expected and every time I started Notes I had to key in my password. Not a big deal, but definitely annoying. Searching the web for clues also did not bring any anwsers. The other week the old laptop was replaced by a new one. Data was copied over from old to new machine, except for the notes.ini file which I deliberately left out hoping it would solve the problem. Well it did not!

Getting unique results from Xpages DbLookup and DbColumn functions
Mon, Mar 28th 2011 6:14a   Tom Steenbergen
After using the DbColumn and DbLookup code I posted a while back I found another thing that needed solving. Frequently I want these functions to only return unique values. But placing @Unique around the function calls gives the empty result as before for a repeat control if the result of the function is a single value, a string in effect. So I added a line of code and a parameter to the functions to be able to request unique values (see the code below). DbLookup /** * Returns @DbLookup results [read] Keywords: dblookup xpages blogger

A while back I blogged about a failing repeat control in Xpages when passing it a single value returned from a @DbLookup or @DbColumn. In the comments to this entry it was already mentioned by some that it needs an array as input.

Xpages - Combobox - set first choice to blank
Wed, Jan 19th 2011 6:14a   Tom Steenbergen
In Xpages the combobox works different from what you are used to in the Notes form equivalent, the dialog list field. In Notes if you get the choices using an @DbColumn or @DbLookup, assign no default value and the user does not consciously pick a value, no value is assigned to the field. But when you do that with a combobox in Xpages, the first value in the list of choices will be assigned to the field. Usually that is not what I want, I want the user to make a conscious choice.

I am converting an application to Xpages and use the repeat control to build several levels of dynamic menu structures. They are based on simple @DbColumn and @DbLookup.

Good old @functions
Wed, Jan 14th 2009 5:12a   Tom Steenbergen
From time to time we use Notes databases to store documentation for processes and projects. And to avoid that everybody enters information using their own format we ask peolpe to use predefined templates to create unity in the created documentation. Normally these templates would be provided as main documents in the database and the users will copy and paste these template documents.br /Now I remembered from way back in Notes 3.3 that I had created a bit of @function code to allow users to pick [read] Keywords: notes xpages applications blogger database widgets

IBM Lotus Technical Conference Amsterdam finished
Wed, Jun 4th 2008 6:50a   Tom Steenbergen
The IBM Lotus Technical Conference in Amsterdam has finished. And to be honest I was a bit disappointed by the number of participants at this event (maybe caused by that other event that started today, the ILUG 2008). Only about a hundred-twenty people turned up and at least a quarter were IBM staff, compare that to Lotusphere !!br /That aside, most of the sessions were of the standard that can be expected by IBM, although some of them could have been a bit more technical to give the name of the [read] Keywords: ibm ilug lotus lotusphere blogger

For the today value I used the "today" function. The age [read] Keywords: agent lotusscript blogger email properties
