SocialBizUg Articles: Notes Dev Tips April Edition

The April edition of the Notes Dev Tips Newsletter is now available.


I just left Breda in the Netherlands, and Engage (formerly known as BLUG).  This was my fourth year attending this conference, and this year lived up to my expectations.  And let me assure you, my expectations were high.

The Collaboration Stack Community Event was on Friday, March 21st, in London at the Soho Hotel.   The hotel itself set the stage that this would be different from the usual LUGs that many of us are used to.

jQuery Coding Standards and Best Practices

I recently ran across this article, http://lab.abhinayrathore.com/jquery-standards/.  As is slightly obvious from the title, the post is about jQuery Coding Standards and Best Practices.  Since I’m learning jQuery, “as I go”, meaning a little at a time and just about a piece of jQuery as I need it, I found this article incredibly useful.

Where IS It?

So I was fixing some bugs the other day.  As is often the case, the user described the problem.  I had not written the code for this application, I was just bug fixing.  I thought I understood the problem and I had an idea where the control was that had the issue.  I opened Domino Designer and I began bug fixing.

The View: Twitter Bootstrap – Beyond the Basics

Part 2 of my View articles on Twitter Bootstrap is now available. (Subscription required).

Once you’ve started using Twitter Bootstrap with your XPages applications, you can create a grid, use some Bootstrap classes, or even use some features via JavaScript or attributes. (For an introduction to using Twitter Bootstrap, see Part 1 of this series, Twitter Bootstrap: Getting Started. What else can you do with Bootstrap? A better question may be, “What can’t you do with Bootstrap?” This article takes you beyond the basics of Bootstrap and demonstrates how to leverage glyphicons, customization themes, and plugins. It also provides resources to further explore all that you can accomplish with Bootstrap and XPages.

Great Sessions at IBM Connect 2014

Lots to see and do at IBM Connect 2014.  There was no way I could possibly see and do it all.  I tried my best to attend sessions that were important to me, and as usual, I still couldn’t see them all, but what I saw was great and always motivates me to learn even more.

This year, I attended a few stand out sessions (no one get upset if I don’t mention YOUR session; remember, I couldn’t attend them all!).

Email is Dead – Long Live Email

We’ve been hearing it for a while, “email is dead”.  Well, apparently, email is what’s next.  IBM Mail Next, that is.  In a flurry of quick announcements at the end of the IBM Connect 2014 Opening General Session, we learned that whatever we are currently calling mail in IBM Lotus Notes and Domino Collaboration Services – Social Edition Mail (not an actual product name) will now be IBM Mail Next.

IBM Connect 2014 Roundup

I’m back from my annual trip to Orlando for IBM Connect (formerly Lotusphere).  This year, like all the others before it, I returned home exhausted, worn out, full of knowledge and motivation.  Lots of questions and rumors floated around before the conference.  Would it be the same as years past?  Would there be enough technical content?  Would Kenexa take over and make it an entirely new conference?  So here is my take on what was the same, what was different, the good and the bad of IBM Connect 2014.

Article: Failed Validation Fail

My validation was supposed to fail, but it wasn’t, so my fail validation failed, right?  A tough bug to figure out, but I eventually got there.  Read my article on SocialBizUg.org to see what happened.

I had an XPage application with pretty simple validation on the page. When the user didn’t enter a value, validation fired and an error message was displayed except on one particular field.

The setup:

The XPage application setting has turned off client side validation, in order to display error messages on the page. The page uses the Form Table and Form Layout Row controls from the extension library with simple edit boxes for fields. We want to display individual error messages for each field, so the “disableErrorSummary” property on the Form Table control is set to false.
