Framework Usability Improvements • Where am I? • Hover on tab for more information • Design list filtering • Find by name and/or alias • More Eclipse-like approach • Creating design elements • 8.5 brought a change to Designer UI for creating design elements • Set alias and comment (and language type) when you create the design element

  8. XPage Usability Improvements • New XPage dialog • Create the data source when the XPage is created • XPage Design Visualization Improvements • (Design Visualization = what it looks like at design time) • Text on a page • “Other” controls • Better rendering of style sheets in design mode • Custom control visualization • Provide your own!

Domino Designer Performance Improvements • Studied and queried Designer users for priority areas • Launching Designer • Database open from the client, from Designer • Expanding database already in navigator • Help Indexing • Results • Help indexing dropped to around 5 minutes (from 30 to 120) • Substantial improvements in other operations (smallest improvement was > 75%)

  10. Extensibility API • Designer (even in 8.5) publishes Eclipse resource selections • Enables Eclipse plugins to contribute to Designer UI and function • API maps between Eclipse resources and design elements, blends with and supports Eclipse APIs • Current selection available through API to allow context sensitivity in plugin contributions • Database and design element property manipulation available • Allows plugin contributor to refresh core Designer UI

  11. Extensibility Classes • DesignerResource • Constants, static methods to analyze selections, open databases, find design elements, etc. • DesignerDesignElementSelection • Information about the current selection (database or design element) • DesignerProject • Information about the current database • DesignerDesignElement • Information about a design element • DesignerException • Thrown to report errors encountered by these classes

  12. Some Sample Code... public Object execute(ExecutionEvent event) throws ExecutionException { Shell shell=HandlerUtil.getActiveShell(event); IWorkbenchWindow window= HandlerUtil.getActiveWorkbenchWindow(event); ISelection selection = window.getSelectionService().getSelection(); String describe=null; if(selection==null){ describe = "Nothing is selected."; MessageDialog.openError(shell, "Message", describe); returnnull; } DesignerDesignElementSelection uisel=DesignerResource.getDesignerSelection (selection); DesignerProjectdesignerProject = uisel.getSelectedDesignerProject(); if(uisel==null){ describe = "DesignerSelection is nothing."; MessageDialog.openError(shell, "Message", describe); returnnull; } List<DesignerDesignElement>designElement = uisel.getSelectedDesignElements(); if(designElement!=null){ for(int i=0;i<designElement.size();i++){ DesignerDesignElement nele=designElement.get(i); nele.sign(); nele.refresh(); } } returnnull; }

  13. LotusScript Editor • Brand new, built on Eclipse framework • Script libraries and Agents • Class browser (Yes, for custom classes, too) • Content assist • Preferences • Syntax coloring • Hyperlinking
