Ok. I was wrong. This is me eating crow. You CAN separate the validation events on the XPages

By Andrew Pollack on 03/02/2012 at 06:33 PM EST

Earlier today I wrote a very frustrated complaint post about how with multiple different documents on a single XPage, the validation events would fire off on all of them no matter which document you clicked a button for. I also posted on Stack Overflow with details of the problem. I thought I'd tried everything, and I'd searched the web and found only comments about "IBM knows about this and..."

Well, I hadn't tried everything. Paul Withers pointed me toward this fix: I just had to check this box on the button event (in addition to setting the refresh mode and scope, which I'd already done).



So....I've updated the original post, and this is me eating some crow. Given that this makes my application work the way I want it to, the crow doesn't taste too bad at all.

Thanks, Paul.

re: Ok. I was wrong. This is me eating crow. You CAN separate the validation events on the XPagesBy Mike Woolsey on 03/06/2012 at 02:46 PM EST
No problem -- any of us who doesn't remember discovering this checkbox (and
actually, note the checkbox above it!!), we've probably forgot more than we
shoulda.

BTW -- note the one above this one, too. Sometimes it's really useful to just
shut off validation when communicating with the server. It's used less often --
but like your current situation, when you need it, you need it badly.

I'm so not jaded with all the ajax work that it would take to process
partial-execution of the code elements. I've had to do that before.

I just wish we could toss an event more than one control, so we could patch
more than one control at a time on a form.

This is not quite a scam because it's technically legal, but it's run very much like a scam. This company works with a few "clients" that have vast repositories of copyrighted images. The trolls do a reverse web search on those images looking for hits. When they find one on a site that looks like someone they can scare, they work it like ......

Thanks to the fantastic work by John Curtis and his team, the node.js integration with Domino is going to be getting a rich security model. What we know is that a user's authorizations will be respected through the node.js application to the Domino server -- including reader names, ACLs, Roles, and so on. The way ......
