NotesIn9 025: Selecting Documents from inside a Repeat Control

When you use a view control there is a simple action for working with selected documents. In SSJS there is a method, getSelectedIDs (or something like that), that let’s you get a handle on any selected documents. However neither of these solutions exist for documents inside a Repeat Control.

In this show l will demonstrate how have a repeat control and get a handle on any documents that the user selects.

I’m TRYING to improve the site… It’s slow going.

P.S. Ok. I’ll admit it. I did have a thought on doing some April Fools Joke here. Maybe a Rick Roll – but then I thought that the “Rick Roll” has run it’s course. Maybe that “Friday” song should be the new Rick Roll? But don’t worry. This video is safe! ๐Ÿ™‚

Notes In 9 – Show 14 – Repeats Repeated

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? ๐Ÿ™‚
