In Lotus Notes based databases (applications) a function can be used to gain access to other databases either by providing a server/name pair or by opening a dialog to let the user select the appropriate database.
There is no such dialog in XPages yet so this custom control contains all necessary functionality to inject XPages applications with an „Application Open...“-Dialog.
It is possible to navigate through the server directory with your mouse. To select a database simply double click on the database or use the button “Open”. To open a folder double click on the folder. You can also go up a level in the directory with the following button.
The new version 2.0 of the dialog uses jQuery and Bootstrap 3!
