Products & Applications
The idea is simple. At the start of your day - upon completion of your first task - create an entry highlighting what you did and whether you feel it was an efficient or inefficient use of your time. Based on several requests, you can also select the priority, apply categories, or even align your time against a project.
For Lotus Notes Client v8.0 and above, you can use the Time Tracker Widget to make this process even easier!
My Configuration-based Rich Text Mail Merge and Emailing Utility, Zephyr allows you to create rich, data-driven emails to support automated workflow - all via Microsoft Word Mail Merge-like architecture. Dear <firstname> allows you to personalize each email message not only to the individual recipient, but also to the individual application workflow event!
xCopy is a simple configurable xCopy client for the Lotus Notes client. By creating and defining xCopy Profiles, you can batch process your file backup or remote upload jobs. With the addition of the xCopy sidebar widget, you can easily kick-off these jobs, and modify both the xCopy Profiles and xCopy itself.

I am always thinking of ways that we, the IBM Notes and Domino Application Development Community, can engage developers both within our community and -- most importantly for the long-term success of IBM Notes and Domino as an application platform -- beyond the existing community.
OpenNTF.org is apparently not only always thinking, but always doing as they just announced their latest sponsored XPages and Connections development contests...

The Extension Library xe:switchFacet Control is quickly becoming my favorite go-to tool for Custom Control development work... but I don't think I use them in what might be considered a traditional sense.

Extending the Extension Library xe:djBorderContainer, this take on a "Lotus Notes Client frameset" for XPages shows how we can create a reusable layout-type Custom Control that provides an alternative to an OneUI application layout.
Now while I don't hate OneUI themeing for XPages applications, I think it's absolutely critical to the adoption of XPages as an application services platform that we show the ability to serve alternative application UIs lest people unfamiliar with the technologies at play think XPages is OneUI...
Let's kick things off with an overview of the desired end-result...

After creating various HTML5 Custom Controls for my IBM XPages application development toolkit, I thought I would showcase two of these controls -- Geolocation and Canvas -- to paint a Google Map of the current user location. Bonus: works great on mobile devices too!

I was just adding to some jumpstart Custom Controls for an HTML5-based XPages project that I'm working on when I ran into something new. Specifically, I was working on the
bdi Custom Control (for the
<bdi> HTML5 element), and tried to match the name of the HTML5 element attribute (
dir) with the Custom Control property counterpart.
Domino Designer Alert for reserved Custom Control property names in XPages
So, apparently you can't use any of the following Custom Control property names:
|Reserved Property Name|
Not the end of the world, mind you, as it's a simple enough fix: name the Custom Control property that handled the
dir HTML5 element attribute to
-- and now you know!
This is why I also avoid property names like "type", "length", "location", and other reserved [or potentially reserved] words. You'll get no errors when you use those, however...
