Synchronization between ODP and NSF goes rogue  

By Patrick Kwinten | 1/4/24 5:07 AM | Development - Notes / Domino | Added by Patrick Kwintensson

We develop in a team an XPages application and we experienced that it takes longer time to build a project and to refresh the design of the templates on ACC and PROD environment. We noticed that a lot of files are being replicated so initially I thought it were the files for web-plugins like Datatables…

Seasonal gift  

By Patrick Kwinten | 12/19/23 8:55 AM | Development - Notes / Domino | Added by Patrick Kwintensson

Today I posted "Team Documents" as a seasonal gift as a project on OpenNTF. What is it? Well it is a small document management application for the Notes client. What makes it so unique? First, it is wrapped in an OpenNTF styled "gift-paper" as you can see in the next image... Second, it has features… Second, it has features that makes Notes once the most popular document management platform: Authors and Readers access management, Review options, Revision (versioning), Expire settings, (locked) categorizing and Usage of templates.

Using OpenLog for logging/ debugging XPages – Kwintessential Notes  

By Patrick Kwinten | 10/3/23 2:09 AM | Development - Notes / Domino | Added by Roberto Boccadoro

Today I opened a database where a developer insists on writing almost all code in SSJS. A bit odd because OpenNTF Domino API is enabled and used in this particular application. I guess JAVA is still frightening. But because of SSJS you get unexpected behaviour which are difficult to catch in OpenLog.

XPages hack – visualizing checkboxes that fail validation  

By Patrick Kwinten | 5/6/22 12:31 PM | Development - Notes / Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

In an application I have added some CSS to highlight fields that fail validation. The css looks as followed: Basically I an looking for the aria-invalid=true attribute on input elements. Works great but not on all input elements. For example re-styling of checkboxes requires some work. But what if you would re-style the element that contains the checkbox?

Sticky headers in Bootstrap from ExtLib  

By Patrick Kwinten | 9/17/21 9:07 AM | Development - Notes / Domino | Added by Patrick Kwintensson

I received a request from a customer who would like to preserve the action buttons on an XPage when the user scrolls downs a very long form. The application is already using the BS theme from the Extension Library with the sticky navbar option in use so this would implement a second 'sticky element'.

Fixing the Tooltip function in XPages #2  

By Patrick Kwinten | 4/15/21 5:21 AM | Development - Notes / Domino | Added by Roberto Boccadoro

In a previous post I wrote about the disfunction of the tooltip after validation with the Domino server. It turns out my gigia-form has a lot of fields with visibility properties set that are calculated after partial refresh. To have tooltip fixed for the fields that become visible during interaction with the user I needed to apply another patch.

Fixing the Tooltip function in XPages  

By Patrick Kwinten | 4/14/21 5:09 AM | Development - Notes / Domino | Added by Andi Kress

A colleague noticed that the tooltip function on a Xpage stopped working after submitting the page to the server and when the validation did not pass. The same behavior occurred when I added a computed text control that would spit out an anchor reference using a tooltip. Odd.

TestiNG XPages  

By Patrick Kwinten | 3/30/21 5:14 AM | Development - Notes / Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

A while ago I started my journey into testing applications. Like most people I started with Selenium IDE since it’s free, easy to install and setup. The idea was to record the workflow in an application and play it back after the development of every new feauture.

Adding a GDPR message to my XPages app  

By Patrick Kwinten | 5/21/20 1:10 AM | Development - Notes / Domino | Added by Roberto Boccadoro

GDPR or Cookies plugins are nothing new. A simple search will give you a quick overview which jQuery based plugins are available. So I decided the one that looked nicest to me and implemented it my XPages app. It worked but not when I met a user who was using IE. No JS error or whatever so where to start debugging?

Data for Bootstrap Treeview from a Notes View?  

By Patrick Kwinten | 1/10/20 12:18 PM | Development - Notes / Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

In a modernization project (increase of browser compatibility) I needed to find a solution for a list of links, categorized and sorted like a Notes View. Since I already use Bootstrap as CSS framework I decided to check the following Bootstrap Treeview project
