Adding Themes to XPages Dojo Charts

Since I first blogged about Dojo charting in XPages in 2009, quite a lot has changed with Dojo. Much of what I did then is still valid, including the additional JavaScript file I created at Lotusphere 2011 and contributed to OpenNTF for making the chart legend multi-column and allowing styling on it.

10 Reasons All Companies Should Use Open Source

Thanks to a tweet from Per Henrik Lausten I was alerted to the release of Dojo 1.6. There are quite a few big changes most notably use of “dojo-data-type” for widgets. This is a huge change but one which has been made to fit in with HTML5 standards. I haven’t followed the discussions in depth …

More Dojo Charting: A Couple of Goodies

During February Bob Balfe has been blogging 28 days of Dojo. To tie in with that I’ve decided now is a good time to blog about a couple of charting enhancements I included in my Lotusphere session with Dave Leedy, XPages: Enter The Dojo.
