Migrate Notes to DOCOVA Blog Series Part 16: Form events

2017-05-23T12:24:52+00:00

Welcome to blog series part 16 of 17 on migrating Notes apps to DOCOVA.  In this entry I'm going to talk about form events. Okay, so the talk about form events usually starts of with the question: Does DOCOVA have document events like onLoad, onUnload, QueryOpen, QuerySave and WebQueryOpen? Yes.  DOCOVA supports both typical browser events like onLoad and onUnload but has also been extended to handle similar events that were found in Notes [...]

Migrate Notes to DOCOVA Blog Series Part 15: Private on first use folders

2017-05-18T12:38:43+00:00

Welcome to blog series part 15 of 17 on migrating Notes apps to DOCOVA..  In this entry I'm going to talk about good 'ol Private on first use folders. This is another one of those "interesting" Notes application design constructs.  In my journeys I don't think I've ever come across this same sort of construct in any other application environment.  Anywhere.  Ever.  Sure, a private folder, but "...on first use" is the kicker.  Interestingly, [...]

Migrate Notes to DOCOVA Blog Series Part 14: Column sorting and categorizing

2017-05-16T12:18:04+00:00

Welcome to blog series part 14 of 17 on migrating Notes apps to DOCOVA..  In this entry I'm going to talk about view column sorting and categorizing. All view sorting and categorizing functionality is supported in DOCOVA.  Additionally, other properties like “Show multiple values as separate entries” and showing response docs in a hierarchy are also supported. I mean, as you get more in depth with DOCOVA, you'll learn the breadth of the view [...]

Migrate Notes to DOCOVA Blog Series Part 13: Shared columns and fields

2017-05-11T12:52:29+00:00

Welcome to blog series part 13 of 17 on migrating Notes apps to DOCOVA.  This entry is dedicated to shared columns and fields.  It's short and sweet. DOCOVA does not support the concept of shared columns and fields between applications at this time. Say what?  I know, right?  DOCOVA is so over the top, so chalk full of functionality...it's crazy, alas at the time of writing this blog entry, it doesn't support shared columns [...]

Migrate Notes to DOCOVA Blog Series Part 12: Multi-value fields

2017-05-09T12:01:37+00:00

Welcome to blog series part 12 of 17 on migrating Notes apps to DOCOVA.  In this entry it's all about multi-value fields. Notes had the concept of multi-value fields on forms.  All fields were basically treated as arrays of values.  For example when addressing field values in LotusScript, you might write some code like; Dim myval = doc.myfield(0)  (where doc is a NotesDocument) Although it's a bit of an odd duck, DOCOVA supports the [...]

Migrate Notes to DOCOVA Blog Series Part 11: Pass-thru HTML and Generate HTML for all fields

2017-05-04T13:02:41+00:00

Welcome to blog series part 11 of 17 on migrating Notes apps to DOCOVA. In this entry I'm going to talk about "Pass-thru HTML and Generate HTML for all fields". A neat aspect of forms development in Notes was the ability to treat text on a form as pass-thru HTML.  This meant that you could add HTML and inline JavaScript directly onto your forms and mark it as pass-thru so that the Domino server [...]

Migrate Notes to DOCOVA Blog Series Part 10: Refresh fields on keyword change

2017-05-02T12:11:35+00:00

Welcome to blog series part 10 of 17 on migrating Notes apps to DOCOVA.  In this entry it's all about "Refresh fields on keyword change". Ya, let's take a moment to just love this one.  Have you ever used it in your Notes apps?  Refresh fields on keyword change was a bit of an odd beast, no?  The purpose of this operation was to enable field options (or values) to be recalculated based on [...]

Calendar View Integration in DOCOVA V5

2018-03-23T15:56:37+00:00

You've built a new application for your client and they love it. You're their hero. Two weeks later, they're back with a list of enhancement questions and new ideas. This can happen regardless how many requirements gathering sessions you have. Once the system is in Production and all the users start accessing it, the requests start to come in. One of these requests may be "Can we see the data in a Calendar format?". [...]

Migrate Notes to DOCOVA Blog Series Part 9: Response Documents

2017-04-27T09:00:24+00:00

Welcome to blog series part 9 of 17 on migrating Notes apps to DOCOVA..  In this entry I'm going to talk about how DOCOVA handles response or child documents. First let me take a second to praise response documents in IBM Notes.  You know, they seem like such a simple thing but I think it's surprising how many systems don't include this type of construct out of the box.  With their ability to inherit [...]

12 Apps in 18 Days – A Notes Migration Project

Jamesway Incubator, located in Cambridge Ontario, manufactures and sells incubators worldwide.   For years they have used IBM Notes and Domino collaboration products to automate business processes and share information with a staff located all over the world.  However, like many in the Notes and Domino community, a corporate decision was recently made to switch to Microsoft based technologies. Replacing Notes based email is relatively easy, since the migration tools and processes are well defined.  [...]
