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.

Here are some sensible rules for web site advertisingAn increasing number of websites are now detecting when users have ad-blocking enabled, and refuse to show content unless you "whitelist" their site (disable your ad-blocking for them). I think that is a fair decision on their part, it's how they pay for the site. However, if you want me (and many others) to white list your site, there are some rules you should follow. If you violate these rules, I won't whitelist your site, I'll just find content elsewhere. 1. The total space taken up by advertisements ......
