Extending the Messages Control: Multiple Messages for a Single Component

By Cameron Gregor | 5/29/15 12:08 PM | App Dev - XPages | Added by John Oldenburger

There is no way to show multiple messages for a single component.

Single Copy XPage Design - Some Learning and Why It's Not For Me

By Paul Withers | 5/26/15 4:00 PM | App Dev - XPages | Added by John Oldenburger

In a recent project I decided to use Single Copy XPage Design (SCXD). This is a seemingly useful technique that is in many ways similar to the concepts underpinning XPages on Bluemix: one database holds the data and it points to another database that contains the XPages-specific design elements – XPages, Custom Controls, StyleSheets, Themes, Images, custom Java code and third-party jars.

How to save date in a document item without time part on back-end

By Yuriy Pastovenskyy | 5/24/15 8:09 AM | App Dev - XPages | Added by John Oldenburger

This is not something really tricky but it's nice to know. Let's imagine you need to save a single date or an array of dates without time part in a NotesDocument item. F.x. you need to do this from an agent so you don't have a form opened in UI with a date-field on it which property "Display time" is disable.
