October Webinar - XPages Flexible View Control with Michael G. Smith

Paul S Withers | 2 months ago | Comments
If you’ve been building XPages applications for any amount of time then you probably have struggled integrating view data into your apps and thought to yourself “it shouldn’t be this hard”. The Flexible View Control for XPages can simplify this process for you. The FVC is a re-usable XPages custom control built on jQuery and DataTables that sources data from Domino REST Services and xAgents.

By using “View Definitions” to handle all of the formatting for the View such as column order, sorting, categorization, and data types, the FVC separates View data from the design and keeps Domino Views in the back-end, allowing for much more flexibility and efficiency in your application. Using a creative approach to building your back-end View indexes helps minimize the number of Views needed and can eliminate single-use Views.

Take advantage of the tight integration with DataTables and bring your View to life with the immense functionality available in that library to create a rich, interactive experience for your users. By the end of the webinar you will see the many benefits of the FVC, how easy it can be to drag and drop highly functional Views into your application, and why I ditched the built-in XPages View components many years ago.


This webinar will take place on October 22, 2020 at 11:00 AM (New York time) to 12:30 PM. There will be time for questions at the end.

After a number of years as a contributor director Nina Wittich this year decided to step down from the board. Thank you, Nina, for your work on the board.

In Nina's place, we are happy to welcome Roberto Boccadoro to the board. He has worked for some time curating content for CollaborationToday and has coordinated the OpenNTF Guides. His strong background in all things admin will bring an additional perspective to the board.

The new board will take up their positions on 3rd October, when we will also elect the Chairman, Treasurer and Secretary positions.
