By Paul Withers | 2/13/17 1:56 PM | App Dev - XPages | Added by Oliver Busse

With a little over a week to go, IBM Connect 2017 looks set to be as busy as ever. 2016 was a challenging year as a Domino developer, testing the faith and patience of many. My attendance at IBM Connect as a speaker, Business Partner and IBM Champion may seem “business as usual”, but it has not been a straightforward journey. So I hope the experience is as positive as last year but with a more positive rest of the year.

Pasting Images into XPages CKEditor 

By Cameron Gregor | 2/13/17 1:03 AM | App Dev - XPages | Added by John Oldenburger

Programs like ‘Snipping Tool’ on Windows, are super useful for users to make a quick snapshot, do some quick markup on the image, paste into chat/email and send. Unfortunately when using the default configuration of CKEditor in XPages (the inputRichText control), support for pasting images is not available for all browsers, and even for the ones that do support it, the images are only pasted as a PNG data URI.

Setting Names, Readers and Authors the ODA Way 

By Paul Withers | 2/8/17 8:43 AM | App Dev - XPages | Added by John Oldenburger

No matter how long you work with an API, there can still be surprises. Yesterday proved one of those for me. While troubleshooting an issue for someone with setting an Authors field in a document (it turned out there was an obscure bug that meant it was trying to recycle a String in a Vector), I shared two ways I’ve been setting Readers or Authors fields in an application using OpenNTF Domino API for a while.

I must say I don’t miss Eclipse at all. Currently I am running it on macOS, but also in a VDI of the customer, which runs Windows.
