Notes In 9 – Show 14 – Repeats Repeated

In the very first episode of Notes In 9 I discussed the new XPages Repeat control. There’s so much you can do with this control I guess it was just a matter of time until I had to come back to it. I’m sure I’ll be talking about this again and again in the future I’m sure.

This show was born on the Notes 8.5 Forum. Judy Kilpinen was posting a question about multi-value fields in XPages. A comment was made that most of the Repeat Control examples only showed repeating views or document collections.

So in today’s show I’ll demonstrate two ways to repeat a multi-value field. The first from a document and the second from a view. The interesting thing about the view is to pull it off I’ll nest a repeat INSIDE a repeat.
How crazy is that? :-)

This show also contains a short public service announcement for Bears On Patrol. I believe this to be a worthy organization that’s dedicated to helping children in a particular time of need.
