Add a separate dialog to display and enter hide-when formulas to improve visibility and access in designer; and/or add shading to indicate where hide formulas exist, as is done with pass-thru HTML.
It's always a tedious job to find a field given its name especially when the form was designed by someone else and even so when it's a complex form.
An intuitive way can be to sort the fields alphabetically in the object list (also display the fields and other elements ...
Please bring us back the @formula debugger !!
Local and Remote Debugging !!
There ought to be a better way of checking for an empty List than checking for a no-op Forall or trapping error 120. Perhaps extending IsEmpty to cover? I'd find that particularly helpful with class coding, when I'd often like to defer populating a List member until the first call ...
I want to right click on an agent, and tell it to run on server now.
It's tiresom to wait for the Agmgr to kick in on a scheduled agent.
Use color in the debugger as it is seen in the editor.
We often spend enough time viewing our code in color that when we get to the debugger, the plain black and white makes it harder to recognize certain parts of your code.
Allow typeahead for custom classes in the declarations section. If Microsoft can put it in Visual Studio 2003... I'm sure it's only a couple of more years away for Lotus to figure it out.
When adding a picture to a form in the Notes Designer. Allow the size properties to be locked and make it locked as the default.
I can't tell you how many times I click on a picture to add a hotspot and the thing resizes.
Allow developers to use a stylesheet to format view and form action buttons/bars so you don't have to go through the action bar properties for all your views if you want to change design.
Let us navigate the folder hierarchy when selecting a template. Let us browse outside the data directory. At a very minimum, even without a hiearcichal view, let us display titles, template names, filenames and dates, and sort on any of them! Let us filter by type (NTF, master template, and ...
It would be nice to have a "Save As" option for design elements while editing them. There have been times when I have been in mid-development and I couldn't decide if I wanted to save the changes or discard them.
In theory... I could quickly jump to the design element ...
In the last time many developers had adopted Linux and MAC OS as their natural operating system to create programs.
Domino Designer is developed using Eclipse Platform, and as anyone knows Eclipse works in any operating system, Why doesn't Domino Designer work in the same way?
Code comments in lotus script should explain the purpose of the code as well as any modifications made to improve functionality or resolve bugs. As comments become ever longer their embedded nature is an impediment to the codes readability. I think the domino designer should have the ability to make comment blocks ...
As the user, designer, administrator of our Notes environment, I frequently have all 3 loaded.
I'd really like an app/db block list so that when I have the "Debug Lotusscript" option enabled and I need to check my mail, or something else, that I could have a list of db/apps ...
I want to program my applications in another platform than windows.
If the client could be translated to Linux, why not the Designer?
The developers want to decide the platform we use.
This would greatly improve my daily life if I could finally totally abandon Windows for OS X.
Inspired by Dreamweaver CS3 and Martin’s post, I would like to accomplish the same with Designer. That is, wouldn’t it be nice if the background color of a field (on a form designed for the Notes client) could be assigned/determined programmatically?
Since master template name is not the same as database name, which is shown in the "open application" dialog, there is no easy way to find and open in desinger the template wich is responsible for application's design. The technology for searching is already in place - it is been ...
One of the downsides to developing Notes client applications is that as a developer I am usually tied to using the same version of Notes/Designer that is deployed across the company. This means I am unable to take advantage of many of the new features in Domino Designer until my ...
i would LOVE a new column "type" in a notes view, for lack of a better term called an "inline response column" ... This would be similar to the "display responses only" column, except that it allows me to add multiple columns for response documents, allows me to do totals for ...
