Re: Deploying ActiveX upload Control in IBM Lotus Quickr 8.5.x for Domino

Hi Donald,

You should be able to attach multiple files to new pages, though obviously new upload documents and new imported file documents can only have one file attachment at a time. My suggestion would be to follow the steps in the "Installation_Guide_ROUNDTRIP_EDIT.txt" file located in the server's "\data\domino\html\qphtml\widgets\resources" directory. This file will have instructions for updating the "widgetRegistryConfig_ext.js" file located in this same directory along with instructions for updating the server's qpconfig.xml file - both of which are necessary for enabling the functionality you want.

Specifically for updating the "widgetRegistryConfig_ext.js" file,the easiest thing to do here would probably be to reference the code updates shown in the first merge example in the "Installation_Guide_ROUNDTRIP_EDIT.txt" file to configure the server to have the Folder Navigator, ActiveX Preview, and Roundtrip Editing all enabled.

After making the updates to the "widgetRegistryConfig_ext.js" file and qpconfig.xml file and then restarting your server, you should be able to add multiple file attachments to pages.

Re: Deploying ActiveX upload Control in IBM Lotus Quickr 8.5.x for Domino

Am I wrong in thinking that you should be able to upload multiple filles when using the ActiveX control? This article for older versions of Quickr refers to being able to upload more than 1 file at a time http://www-304.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21154131

I have deployed the activex control and I can use the D&D functionality but when trying to upload multiple files I get a waring stating that only 1 file at a time can be uploaded.

If not available in 8.5.x is there any plan to introduce in future releases?

Great article, thank you.

Please also note that if the following qpconfig.xml setting is enabled:

security

uploadable_filetypes enabled="true".pdf,.doc,.ppt,.xls,.docx,.pptx,.xlsx,.png,.jpg,.gif/uploadable_filetypes

/security

...then importing files using ActiveX will NOT work.

This is because ActiveX creates addtional .HTML, .CSS and .JPG files when a file is imported. The above security settings will block those and the user will receive an error:

"Error: Unable to upload file: "C:\DOCUME~1\ADMINI~1\LOCALS~1\Temp\1\QuickPlace\TMP2429$Charsetwindows-1252$.HTM".

Connection to "quickr.server.com" closed."

To prevent this, the qpconfig.xml should be changed to:

security

uploadable_filetypes enabled="true".pdf,.doc,.ppt,.xls,.docx,.pptx,.xlsx,.png,.jpg,.gif,.htm,.css/uploadable_filetypes

/security
