Subject: Xpages Custom Controls How do ya...
Feedback Type: Question
Product Area: Domino Server
Technical Area: New Features
Platform: Windows 2003 server
Release: 8.5
Reproducible: Not applicable

Ok so I am running through a bunch of the Xpages Tutorials and examples that folks have been kind enough to blog about. I am starting to work on the design of the next version of our organization's Intranet. Currently we use subforms to house the basic Header, Navigation, and Footer for the Intranet design.

Welcome to Xpages. I have walked through Declan's wonderful tutorial ( which exposes the IBM OneUI design through use of themes and custom controls embedded on an Xpage.

1) Can I pull custom controls across databases? (right now subforms can do this)
2) How do I do this?
3) Should I be pulling in computed custom controls? (not sure where to do this) or computed Xpages?

I know this is probably basic stuff but that is where I am at right now. :)

Thanks in advance for your input.
