Reflections on Domino 8.5.1: It's The Little Things That Count

Anyone who used Domino Desiger 8.5 must have been looking forward to last Monday. There were blog posts teasing about the improvements in 8.5.1 in the build-up and constant tweets across Twitter on Monday and Tuesday about people installing 8.5.1.

XPages: Validation for Radio Buttons – 8.5.1 Issue

 First of all, apologies for not making further progress on the validation tutorials. Prior to a customer meeting, I was doing a final review of the mixture of client-side and server-side validation I implemented, and found problems.

XPages: Validation for Radio Buttons, Check Boxes and List Boxes: Part One

I recently had the need to add validation to radio buttons, check boxes and list boxes for an XPages app. Sounds straightforward, surely it’s just the same as for any other control. However, I was creating the Radio button group, Checkbox group and List Box controls for Domino documents in a repeat control. So for …

Welcome

Welcome   I’ve always been a bit of a late developer (pardon the pun!), but I thought it was about time I started posting a blog. I’m a relative newbie at Domino Development compared to some – just nine years experience since R5. But after using a wide range of functionality and quite a bit of …
