The mailbox app in appstore have a really nice feature, it let's you snooze your email for a custom time and bring it back as a new mail when the time is reached. So I did a quick test to see if I could do something similar in IBM Notes mail, and this is what I came up with.
I have been coding rather advanced Java applications a couple of years ago. It was then totally out of the Domino sphere. Recently I have began to code some Java agents for Domino, and the basic principles are not that hard to get. Anyway I did hit an issue with recycle and response documents.
In the previous two posts, I showed how to implement Font Awesome in XPages and two options for adding icons to your page. In this post, I’ll show how you can add event handlers so that you can trigger an action when a user clicks on an icon.
In the last post, I showed how to implement Font Awesome in your XPages application. In this post, I’ll show two ways to display Font Awesome icons on your pages.
Last week I started playing with Bootstrap4XPages. It’s been around for a few months now and is part of OpenNTF Essentials. But I finally got round to playing with it. Although having lots of whitespace seems in vogue for websites, personally I don’t like that. So one of my first steps was to change the theme. Fortunately, Bootswatch allows a host of themes to just lay on top of Bootstrap, in the same kind of way versions of OneUI have various themes.
We are pleased to announce the presentations given at our ATLUG Day of Champions event on Monday April 7 are now available online. Look in the Files section of this community.
This saturday was dedicated to do some tests with automated build and Jenkins / Maven. Jenkins is a brilliant tool to let a server do some automated tasks.

Font Awesome is a great library of icons (implemented as a font) that you can use in your applications. Russ Maher wrote a great post and provided a sample application to make it very easy to get up and running with Font Awesome quickly.
Selling XPages isn't actually selling XPages for me. I rarely sell technology. I focus on selling a solution to a business problem, using technology.
I troubleshot a maddening issue in an XPages application recently, so I’m documenting it in case anyone else comes across it (or has a better solution). The Problem In a pretty straightforward application, I have repeat controls with view data sources. The search property of each data source is set to read from a scope […]
The New England Lotus User Group (NELUG) is meeting next week , and Pete Janzen was kind enough to give us a preview of what he'll be presenting on.
Each year we create a new theme for MWLUG and is always a challenge. But this year it was easy. I took a hard look of what is a LUG and what do we do. It is not just about the collaboration technology that we are so fond of, it is all about us.
This is a VERY DIFFERENT NotesIn9. It’s less of a normal show and more if a response to a recent blog post regarding one persons opinion on the value of Java in XPages and the Value of the UI vs the backend. Actually this show is more of a really long “rant”.
I created the xGroupToolbox that has a couple tools that can be deployed and accessed by anyone in your organization. The tools provide a drop down list of applications and returns the groups listed in the ACL, group adminstrator(s), and links to both the group and administrator.
We recently saw how to dynamically attach event handlers to DOM elements with dojo.on(). In this post, we’ll see how to use event delegation to set up event handlers that will work on DOM elements that don’t even exist on the page yet. This is powerful logic that is well worth learning.
