XPages Tip: Select a Working Set in Package Explorer (and Navigator)
If you’ve been using Domino Designer for any length of time, you’re likely aware that you can group your applications into Working Sets in the Applications view. But did you know that you can do the same thing in the Package Explorer and Navigator views?
Working Sets in the Applications View
Here’s what it looks like to select a working set in the Applications view in DDE:
You can choose one or select the
Multiple... option to select multiple working sets.
Working Sets in the Package Explorer View
Until recently, I didn’t realize that I could make a similar selection in the Package Explorer view. I always just saw it as annoying that I had to dig through every NSF I’ve worked on until I looked around for this option.
If you click on the icon with 3 horizontal gray lines, you get this drop-down:
You can select a single working set or choose the magic
Window Working Set option to have the Package Explorer databases automatically updated based on your working set selection in the Applications view.
If you want to disable this option and show them all, you can select
Deselect Working Set from the menu.
Working Sets in the Navigator View
Interestingly, you can also choose a working set in the Navigator view, but the options are more limited; there’s no option to link it up with the current working set.
