Am I 1 in a million? 1 in 500,000? How many Lotus Notes Admins and Developers are in Houston?

Just curious about this, I only know of two others here in the Houston area, John Turnbow, and Paul T. Calhoun.  Anyone work in this area?  Any desire for a community meeting?  I had lunch with Paul last month and it was great to meet someone local that understood what i was talking about.

Do you want to take your Xpage applications offline? Please help me get Xpage support in DOLS

Would you like to take your xpages offline, easily, while keeping the domino security model intact?  And when the user connects back online it would replicate back to the server?

I know you can do this with the notes client today, but why should you have to install a Notes client and have all the GUI options available to users if you are trying to only deploy a single application?  ISV's and some other companies need this option so that they can deploy applications to partners or customers as needed without having to setup and support a notes client install.

 If you would like to see feature implemented, please contact Peter undescore Janzen at us.ibm.com.  ALso post your business case in the comments as well.

Also vote on the idea jam below.

Thanks for your help!!

Xpages: Validation for a field, hopes this helps someone

Today i needed to do some validation on an Xpages form.

The scenario
I had a field, it had typeahead enabled on an Xpage.  This view has 6000 documents so a combo box was out of the question.  I didnt really want to do a pick list either since most people know the number they want in the first place.  But i needed a way to figure out  if the value in the field existed in the view.

So i looked at adding a custom validator, couldn't seem to make that work.  So i looked on the wiki and a few other places and discovered this.  Create a validateExpression validator.

In the expression field you need to add your code to calculate to true or false.  Syntax should be something like

return var1 == var2

Mine looked like

account1 = @Trim(@Text(document3.getItemValueString('job')));
chargetype = document3.getItemValueString('jobaccount');
db1 = new Array("notes1", "Applications\\viewpoint.nsf")
var iffound = ""
if(chargetype == 'Job')

{  iffound = @Trim(@Text(@DbLookup(db1,"Project Import",account1,1)));
return account1 == iffound
{return (@IsMember(account1, @DbColumn(db1,"Accounts7",1))!= 0)

Then here is the part i didn't get from the wiki post,  You need to add a DisplayError control next to the field you are validating.  Then set that displayerror to show error messages for that field you are validating.  It will not pop up like the simple can not be 0 or can not be empty messages you get from the default validators.

Anyways I hope this helps someone else.

Video: My Tasks (ITANA) V4.0 for iPhone and Android delivers offline read/write via HTML5 and IBM Lotus Domino 8.5.2 XPages

ITANA V4.0 has been completely rewritten to work offline for editing and adding tasks.  As a great side benefit, ITANA opens quickly(sub 2 seconds) and moving between tasks is very very fast(sub second).   Since this update requires Domino 8.5.2(for the cache manifest), it will be released shortly after it is available later this month. Please let me know what you think
