In today’s show I do my first one that’s geared to the End User and not the Developer. There were a couple of people on Twitter recently who had some issues with Notes. The first wanted to know how to tell Notes to use Chrome as the browser and the other was having some problems searching his Email database.
In the very first episode of Notes In 9 I discussed the new XPages Repeat control. There’s so much you can do with this control I guess it was just a matter of time until I had to come back to it. I’m sure I’ll be talking about this again and again in the future I’m sure.
This show was born on the Notes 8.5 Forum. Judy Kilpinen was posting a question about multi-value fields in XPages. A comment was made that most of the Repeat Control examples only showed repeating views or document collections.
So in today’s show I’ll demonstrate two ways to repeat a multi-value field. The first from a document and the second from a view. The interesting thing about the view is to pull it off I’ll nest a repeat INSIDE a repeat.
How crazy is that?
This show also contains a short public service announcement for Bears On Patrol. I believe this to be a worthy organization that’s dedicated to helping children in a particular time of need.
This week marks the last couple of days of Wiki Madness. In celebration of the end of what I think was a great event I’m celebrating with a weeks worth of new shows.
In today’s show I talk about XPages and especially the need to start becoming comfortable with the source window. Unlike traditional Notes Development where you only have an IDE, XPages allows you to access the actual XML source of the page. Watch how you can use that to your advantage and do a couple of simple things that can not be done in the IDE alone.
May the source be with you!
One note about this show. It’s my first attempt using a new microphone. It’s called a Yeti. I’m not sure if I have it set right just yet. Certainly the keyboard came across too loud in this one. I think it’s better in tomorrow’s show.
Next week will be the last week of WikiMadness. In celebration of the very successful event Notes In 9 will attempt to do something special.
There will be a new show on Monday.
That’s right a whole week of Notes In 9’s. At least that’s the plan.
Monday and Tuesday will be XPage Focused. The rest? We’ll you’ll just have to tune in and find out!
