Thank you to everyone who contributed to and sponsored the LTAP 2010 event

Can I just say thank you to everyone who contributed to the LTAP 2010 conference. My actual user experience was mixed due to my own connectivity problems and the site itself but that does not take away from what was achieved and the huge effort that was collectively put in.

As someone who works from home a lot the physical interaction of “real events” is very necessary but I have thought for some time that for a community who make their living from collaboration and a brand that offers to meet all of your collaborative needs this type of on-line collaborative event was long overdue.

I am looking forward to next years event and I hope that IBM will learn from the buzz that this event generated and reflect on how Lotusphere

SNTT : Adding embedded Video to the Openntf Domino Wiki Template

I use the Domino Wiki template from OpenNTF for most of the projects that I work on. It has its quirks but it is none the less very useful.

We are launching a new XPages product and I wanted the relevant wiki to be a bit more engaging so I added a .swf ( Adobe Shock Wave ) feature that displays the video as an embedded object.
I guess this doesn’t work for iPads ??

Anyhow, it is very simple to do and the end result is a form that looks like this

and a wiki  page that looks like this (click here )

Step 1 : Add a new field to the underlying Notes form CONTENT NOTES

Step 2 : Add a computed field to the Custom Control prtContent

This field displays the html code for the video if the field above is populated.

The value of the field is calculated as shown below. The field is set to display as HTML ( see attached file also )

part6 = document1.getValue(“swffilename_tx”);
atturl = facesContext.getExternalContext().getRequest().getRequestURL().toString() + “/$file/”+part6;
“<object width=’550′ height=’400′><param name=’movie’ value='”+ atturl +”‘><embed src='”+atturl+”‘ width=’550′ height=’400’></embed></object>”

The visibility of the filed is calculated as

if(document1.isEditable()){return(false)};
var check1 =  document1.getValue(“swffilename_tx”);
if (check1 ==”” || check1 == null){return(false)}else{return(true)}

I’m not proud, any advice on coding gratefully received.

Step 3: Add a field to the XPages so that it can be edited in the browser

This is mapped to the field on the form in step 1. Also note that if you copy the the source for the row above the cells are hidden for some reason.

Thats it !

To use it attach a SWF file and enter the file name into the new field.

The result is like this => http://www.deliverytoolkit.com/Public/FDT/moc/mocwiki.nsf/dx/Overview_Screencast

I have attached the XPage source below. I would attach the whole database but it has been badly hacked about in other ways.

Eliminating debugging messages on Traveler 852 for Symbian

If you are getting debugging messages on your Nokia device after installing Traveler 852 then you will want to download a newer version of traveler 852 which was released on the 19th September.

This is not an interim fix or a hot fix but rather a fix that has been sneaked into the new multilingual installer.

It does not appear on fix central, I happened to just come across it in this notes forum thread. Actually Traveler 8.5.2 is not recognised by fix central at all.

The debugging messages appear as black text in a blue box.
