Contributor Candidacy OpenNTF

OpenNTF is a rich environment for developers and administrators to express and share their ideas, hopes and believes regarding the IBM Notes Domino platform. Everyone’s contribution is valuable and treated with respect. As contributor director I bring my experience from both Notes customer and ISV side to this great community.

I have decided to nominate myself as contributor candidate for the OpenNTF board. The voting ends October 1 so hurry up in case you have not voted yet. The reason for the nomination is to give something back to the community and learn from others. Probably the reason why most people are active on OpenNTF.

The last decade I have been working for the most part as a Notes customer. Although OpenNTF is merely a community to develop open source applications a Notes customer is more interested in ready to deploy solutions. Hopefully I can initiate activities in this area.

Internationalization of the Pager controls

While translating an app for internationalization I noticed that Pager controls (e.g Pager Expand/Collapse, Pager Show/Hide Details)) were still default in English. So I wondered how you could translate them since they did not adapt to the selected language in my browser?

It turns out that a workable way is to set the text explicit in the controls first to your default application language:

Now they have become available for translation:

If you open the properties file for the XPage/Custom Control you can allocate the strings to translate:

Screenshot_3

 

The downsize to this approach is that you have to translate them for every design element you have the controls on. I assume this should not be the intention, so if you know the proper way, please let me know.

Update

pagerSizes

Paul Withers replied to my post how to set the pages in the pagerSizes control.

Here is a demo code:

<xe:pagerSizes id=”pagerSizes1″ for=”dataView1″ text=”Page {0}” />

In the properties file translate it accordingly e.g.

pagerSizes1/@text=Sida {0}

I am not sure how to set the ‘All’ text.

pager

The pager control you can also translate. A description you can find in the XPages Wiki maintained by Julian Buss.

 

Here is an example code:

<xp:pager partialRefresh=”true” id=”pager1″ for=”dataView1″ style=”padding-right:20px;”>
<xp:pagerControl type=”Previous” id=”pagerControl1″ value=”Previous”></xp:pagerControl>
<xp:pagerControl type=”Group” id=”pagerControl3″></xp:pagerControl>

<xp:pagerControl type=”Next” id=”pagerControl2″ value=”Next”></xp:pagerControl>
</xp:pager>

Again, translate the labels in the properties file accordingly.

Below is the result of the translation:

Tip of the day: isDocument() for nested data in the Data View control

You can show nested data in the details section of the Data View control. Read about it here: Data Views – Part 10: Nested Repeat in the Detail Section.

In case you have a ‘flat’ Data View (one without collapisble categories) you do not need to detect if your ‘var’ property is a document. But when you have a categorized Data View you better check it otherwise opening/closing categories will give an error…
