The first article of a two-part series by myself and the estimable Troy Reimer has been published in The VIEW. (Subscription Required)
Part 2 will demonstrate reusable message controls that function as dialogs — one with OneUI styling and one with a Twitter Bootstrap modal.
The separation of client-side and server-side logic in XPages (read: web) applications increases the complexity of communicating consistently with users. In this series, we demonstrate several implementations of reusable message controls that save development time by being easy to implement and help improve the user experience by providing consistently formatted inline messages. Options include OneUI and Twitter Bootstrap styling as well as client-side and/or server-side triggers, so you can choose what works best for your application.
