Is it just me or are there more Notes developers that would want to see (1) a more stable Domino Designer, and (2) run significantly faster. And would you rate this above ANY and ALL new features that may be added.
We need not set the bar too high. ...
Before ELSE (Eclipse LotusScript Editor) the old Domino Designer client always ensured that the correct indentation was applied whenever I added new lines of LotusScript code. Now I must manually select the code and type <Crtl><I> to force a block of code to be indetde correctly. I would much rather have ...
This is in response to Ben Langhinrichs' request for book proposals.
A introductory/primer for pre-8.5 Notes application developers and new Notes/Domino developers. Covers the following:
When typeahead is invoked in ELSE (Eclipse LotusScript Editor) it doesn't seem to use the correct casing for the methods/properties (as outlined in the documentation). Given with SSJS we are compelled to ensure the correct casing is always used I think we should insist that ELSE also provides the documented casing.
I now have the option of autosave in the Notes client which can be really useful when typing long documents and (shock horror) the Notes client crashes. I would also love to see this same capability added to Domino Designer. Unfornately it is even more likely that the Designer client might ...
OK, due to a missing "Mini-view" in mail, IBM support did the usual, delete the workspace directory and have it create a new one - fine, but I really hate having to re-add all sorts of apps and working sets in designer.
Maybe there is a way to backup ...
Ability to open function in Domino Designer in a new tab window if you already have an open another function from this library
Ability to open function in Domino Designer in a new ...
After working with Working Sets for a while (or trying to) the only conclusion I can come to is they are not at all designed for Notes. The original Eclipse/Java platform for which they appear to have been designed for does not translate at all well to Notes. There have ...
When viewing the Objects list for a form in designer, instead of just fieldname (Field), tell me what kind of field "(Field)" is.
e.g. (Field - Text)
SInce moving to DDE 8.5.1 it seems that the time taken to perform a basic task of deleting an agent from a database now takes a full minute. To remove six agents takes six minutes. As a developer i usually have lots of things to do and having to sit around ...
Outside of editing Xpages, many of the panels provided by DDE are of no value. Even when editing Xpages their are often periods when I do not need to see all the panels. I can use perspective or close panels. What I would often find more useful is the ability ...
In Designer 8.5.1 I've added the Tasks window to the Domino perspective (Window>Show Eclipse Views>Other>General>Tasks), which will list the stuff I've still got left to do when writing Java, if I add "// TODO...etc" comment lines in my code, which is great. It would be lovely to have this feature ...
I find it very frustrating that I cannot have a list of forms open in the center pane and a list of e.g. views from the same app. Just add an extra tab for the views when the forms is already open.
When a Notes view is opened in DDE any change made requires a view refresh to complete before DDE continues doing anything else. With large views this can consume valuable time, especially when the change made is to the font of a column header which should not require a view ...
When I am editing an XPage using the source code view (which is now probably 90% of the time) I would like to be able to drag/drop a control from the control palette instead of switching to the design view. This can often be a fstaer way than typing out ...
The "floating" properties is quiet annoying because you have to move it around the design area when it is on top of items.
For traditional Notes design elements (Forms, Views) it would be more handier to have the properties box appear in the Outline panel, simply because that panel ...
