And here we are, the July edition of articles posted on SocialBizUg.org…

Fixing Issues in SourceTree

I’ve written a few articles on source control.  As you’ve probably guessed, I’m a big fan of source control.  In those articles, I use the Mercurial plugin within Domino Designer with a Bitbucket repository. Lately, I’ve been using Sourcetree to take care of the handling between the NSF, the on disk project, and the online repository.  No solution is 100% perfect and Sourcetree has its issues. However, a colleague and I were just discussing that the issues still outweigh the problems you have without any source control, but I digress.

Better JavaScript

With XPages, many of us are writing JavaScript for the first time.  As often happens, we learn by doing.  Learning by doing often means taking other developers’ examples and changing them to our own needs.  Unfortunately, learning from examples does NOT always mean we learn best practices for a language or technology.

Can I Use This?

With the wonderful number of browsers and the many versions that each browser comes in, it can be a bit confusing and difficult to know if you can use a particular piece of code.  I’ve previously written about how to TEST all those browsers with BrowserStack,  but wouldn’t it be much easier if you just knew beforehand if a line of code would work?

Easy Sorting and Column Order

You have a Notes and Domino traditional Notes Client application. It’s been in place for years. The application has far too many views (with sorting and indexing and everything else that makes the application larger and larger). You are getting your feet wet with XPages and you want to “XPagify” this application.

That’s Refreshing!

Often, when you’re learning something new, like XPages, you’ll accept the defaults or always use the selection provided in an example, without actually knowing what the options mean. In the case of page refresh (under “Server Options” on a server side event), you’ll probably start out using “Full Update” or “Partial Update”.  I wanted to point out what all the options do and provide two additional tips.

View Article: Getting Started with XPages Localization

Part 1 of the article I co-wrote with Brad Balassaitis is now available on the View website.

This is a deeper dive on the topic that Brad and I co-presented at IBM Connect earlier this year.  Part 2 will be coming out soon.

The enterprise is global. If your organization stretches across borders or your clients are in other countries, you cannot just develop an application in your native language and expect that to be good enough. XPages allows you to enable localization and provide multiple languages to display to users.

Here in Part 1 of this two-part series, we will discuss localization features built into XPages. We’ll also demonstrate how to enable localization, work with the localization files, and verify that the application is handling localization. Additionally, we provide some helpful tips to make the process easier. In Part 2, we will demonstrate how to extend out-of-the-box functionality by providing a means to translate computed values and other programmatic text.

Intimidating Themes

I admit it, I was intimidated.  I’m not sure why, but every time I saw a session on themes, I thought, “I should go to that”, or a blog post, “I should read that”, but I didn’t for the longest time.  I had some misconceptions that intimidated me.

My first misconception was that themes were hard.  They aren’t.  I’ll show you how to create a theme in just a few minutes.

Testing! Testing! Testing!

You test your applications, right? Of course you do.  But where do you test it?  Do you test on multiple browsers?  What about multiple operating systems?  You could have 10 different VMs with multiple browsers installed, or you could just use browserstack.com.
