Re: Converting large Notes Client forms to XPages

Thanks! Great idea for a mobile "wizard" type form, too. Another long form option could be Bootstrap's ScrollSpy (http://getbootstrap.com/javascript/#scrollspy). I've used this a few times, and users seem to like it on desktops. The example above, methinks, is much better for mobile.

@Wayne. I have changed the code sections and they are now visible.

There are three pieces of code missing. The first one I can do without, the other two seem rather important. The only thing that is showing is "{"...not real helpful.

Can you provide...please?

@Robert, no need for extra fields for displaying data, not sure how it works exactly but from examples I have seen there are still two modes, read and edit, depends how you set the xpage up on how it opens the data xpage from the view. Create new document you would want in edit mode straight away, clicking on a link in a view, read mode.

@David, thank you, working on another one now.

Good information. I've had a site in production for about eight years that does the same thing only using sub-forms like you're using panels. I've been thinking of how to upgrade it to xPages. This is a good start.

I'm really new to xPages so I'm still confused by another related aspect. With a regular Notes form with editable fields you get the data entry field when in "edit" mode and the text displayed when in "display " mode. One design does both. How does this work in xPages? Do I build a different page to display the contents from the page where the data is entered?

Really neat article. I'm actually working on a large form/xpage right now and will give this a try. Thanks for posting!
