NotesIn9 Extended Edition 11: XPages SplitScreen – View and Document

In this show I take a question from a viewer who asked how you could have a view on the right, click on a document and be able to edit it on the left. I’ll demonstrate that by using a Repeat Control since I don’t like View Controls that much.

There’s quite a bit in here for the beginner. I create a repeat control, bind to a foreign database, control rendering of the document section, use simple actions and SSJS and even show the world how bad I am with CSS. 🙂

The viewer also wanted to be able to create NEW documents, but I’ll save that bit for a future show.

Hope you like it.

NotesIn9: EE 008 – XPages: One Man’s Journey

NotesIn9 Week continues with this episode in which Graham Acres comes on as a guest to talk about how he got started using XPages. I want to thank Graham very much for taking the time to record this presentation for NotesIn9.

Graham will talk about his journey into learning this new technology and then will show off a couple of interesting demo’s and tips.

There are now a lot of great resources out there for XPages information. Here’s just a couple:

XPages Blog
Designer Wiki

Again, a big thanks to Graham for his presentation.
