Make the NotesAdministrationProcess.DeleteUser have the ID in Vault deleted/inactive

: Domino Designer
: id vault
Mathieu Pape8090 - 09 2016 / (0)
Currently known under SPR KTAI7RZ6VG, but dating already back to 2010 ...
The method doesn't do anything with the ID in the Vault (unlike the manual deletion process asking what to do with the ID file in the Vault), ...

Design element support in XPages format

: Domino Designer
: xpages
Mike Woolsey4870 - 28 2015 / (0)
In development there is a major advantage to being able to manage design elements separately. Tasks are easier to allocate & understand. The impact of one element is limited as it applies to the rest if the application.
Yeah, there are great advantages to XPages serving multiple functions. It ...

Abort searching design of form

: Domino Designer
: search, enhancements, form, fields, designer
Mohammad Haidar25 - 26 2015 / (0)
 Ability to stop searching a form for a word, this will be time saving especially when the form contains big number of fields and you have by mistake chosen to search 'Scope: All Objects"

Make the columns of the design element lists customizable

: Domino Designer
: designer
Starrow Pan5103 - 20 2015 / (1)
The designer shows design elements,e.g. forms, agents, in views similar to normal notes views. The predefined columns are useful. But it would be better to be able to customize them. For example:
1. Thanks to XPages, there's little use now to create two versions of a form for notes client ...

XPages template/framework based on (incorporating) IBM Design Language

: Domino Designer
: xpages, outline, template, framework, core controls
Mark Rowan31 - 29 2014 / (0)
IBM has recently published a set of guidelines/best practices for "making delightful products and enlightening experiences"

{ Link }

Would it not make sense for IBM (or someone else for that matter) to publish/submit a baseline template that incorporates the "IBM Design Language" so that ...

Allow HideWhen on multiply selected outline entries

: Domino Designer
: out-of-office
Christopher Boote10606 - 07 2014 / (0)
Open an outline
Select multiple entries
bring up properties
You can't set the hide-when formula for multiple entries

make it easier to get from view or form to its related XPage

: Domino Designer
: xpages
Mike Woolsey4870 - 18 2014 / (0)
Without a quick link from a Form or View to open a reoevant XPage, I am constabtly jumping back & forth between form & XPage, looking up one, navigating around, looking up the other, back & forth.
I want a link from a form or view to its XPage, ...

Javascript editor that flags common errors between serverside & clientside

: Domino Designer
: javascript, xpages
Mike Woolsey4870 - 18 2014 / (0)
 It's too easy to mistake a SSJS event & a CSJS event.
Be great to have different background colors for SS & CS dialogs.
Great to enable the editor to report a CSJS warning when a SSJS object is named, and vice versa.
Maybe restructure the event ...

Add ComputeWithForm argument to set "saved" "edited", "loaded"

: Domino Designer
: domino objects, notesdocument
Mike Woolsey4870 - 06 2014 / (0)
So many times I've been in the middle of a script needing to refresh a document like it's gonna be saved.
But ... I can't fire off the formulas that way using ComputeWithForm. Because I can't set @IsDocBeingSaved = @True.
And there're a LOT of formulas.
If we ...

Background-rebuild views when saved in Designer

: Domino Designer
: views
Mike Woolsey4870 - 06 2014 / (0)
 When I save a view in Designer and I'm in that view in Notes, Notes locks up waiting on the view rebuild.
It'd be great if Notes just went to its "view being refreshed" screen and actually allowed us to continue development.

Handle Java design element copies consistently

: Domino Designer
: script library, java
Mike Woolsey4870 - 06 2014 / (0)
If I write an agent to copy a Java script library into / over an existing one, Domino Designer goes a bit crazy. It complains that anything calling the script library doesn't find it, even after a "Build All".
This kind of copy-design-element is essential when using multiple templates ...

Share Java codes for agents, XPages etc. in a Notes application

: Domino Designer
: java, agent, web services, xpages
Starrow Pan5103 - 12 2014 / (0)
Thanks to XPages, Java development takes a bigger role in Notes dev. However, while an agent, web service and XPage app can all be written in Java, the compilation paths for them are different. An Java agent can use a Java script library but not a Java code or package ...

Allow 'document properties' in view design mode

: Domino Designer
: design client, design elements, views
Christopher Boote10606 - 07 2014 / (0)
In the design client, when working on a view, allow the document properties box to work on documents in the view -would be incredibley helpful to check a doc when writing a complex selection statement, for example

I wish evaluate() would throw errors (again)

: Domino Designer
: lotusscript, error
Mike Woolsey4870 - 05 2014 / (0)
Im not sure where an @formula error goes now, but it doesnt seem to show up throwing an error. It seems to return some kind of "almost an overflow" return value when I run "@error" now.
I wish itd throw an error, or return something that can be understood ...

I wish @Eval returned errors much like other @Functions

: Domino Designer
: @formula, parameters
Mike Woolsey4870 - 05 2014 / (0)
When I stuck @Eval in a translation formula, it seemed like it'd work great. But its error handling seems off.
When I set an @Eval result to a variable, as in
Tmp := @Eval("@Error");
I would like the error returned into the tmp variable. Right now it ...

Integrate Worklight into Designer

: Domino Designer
: worklight, domino, designer, tool
Zoltan Szabo4849 - 28 2014 / (0)
Ability to add Worklight into Designer as an external tool.

more options to program customized view setup & changes

: Domino Designer
: view
Mike Woolsey4870 - 15 2014 / (0)
 I'd like the ability to setup a view initially in any format that a user might customize it.
I'd also like the ability to program a particular custom forms for a view, hiding & rearranging the rows.
I'd like to be able to reset a view programmatically to ...

I wish NotesUi objects could open an ACL dialog

: Domino Designer
: domino objects
Mike Woolsey4870 - 15 2014 / (0)
 Often it's useful to display or use the ACL dialog from within a script. I'd like to be able to display the ACL from a NotesUIDatabsse or NotesUIWorkspace object.

put back script library alias

: Domino Designer
: script library
Mike Woolsey4870 - 15 2014 / (0)
 I use scrpit libraries extensively to provide loose coupling to different methods of getting the same data. The simple way to do this is to use an alias.
Only, now its not easy to see what script lib is in use. I cant see the alias for a script ...

make profile a first class design element again

: Domino Designer
: profile
Mike Woolsey4870 - 15 2014 / (0)
Even with Xpages profiles are still used and useful for timely development.
1- View profile listings in Admin and Designer.
2- Open, edit profiles from Web.
3- Open profiles is a separate window in Notes client.
4- Deal with the continuing issue of cached profiles, which dont show updates ...
