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.

IBM has made a deal under which the Notes & Domino software and intellectual property is now being developed and maintained by HCL America. HCL America is part of the very large "HCL Technologies" company that has grown from its roots in India to become an 8 Billion Dollar company with a global presence in the IT Industry.

If your company has ditched Notes and Domino, I feel sorry for you. For companies that do use Notes/Domino this is a game changer and Apple should be paying attention. Here's why: There are hundreds of little Notes client applications you'd never spend the time and money to build and deploy for your internal user base on IOS that we use Notes for all the time (those of us still using it). Now, those are suddenly ALL available on the iPad. ......
