Domino Designer 8.5.2: Browser Applications and Dojo
Lotus Training Overview

Dojo is an Open Source JavaScript toolkit that makes it easier to create Ajax/DHTML applications for browsers with modern, attractive user interfaces. Dojo is included with Domino 8.5 and with Dojo you can quickly and easily improve browser applications that use the traditional Domino Form/View design architecture.

This course immerses the developer in the essential aspects of the Dojo Base and Dijit widget libraries needed to adapt elements of existing Domino applications.

Lotus Training Learning Objectives

In this course, you will learn how to:
  • explain the role of Dojo in browser applications running on Domino and how Dojo is otherwise used by Domino in iNotes, the Rich Text Editor, and XPages
  • integrate Dojo and Dijit widgets with existing browser applications running on Domino
  • install and locate the Dojo library files on the Domino Server and include them in a design element such as a Form or Page
  • use key functions in the base Dojo library file to interact with the browser’s DOM nodes, manipulate JavaScript objects, load additional Dojo libraries when needed, run code only after all the Dojo modules have loaded, validate user entries, and fetch Domino data
  • debug applications that use Dojo and JavaScript using the console log and Mozilla FireBug
  • convert Domino fields to Dijit widgets
  • establish a Dojo data store from a JSON object (including from a Domino View) and use the data to populate combo boxes, trees, and data grids
  • add button, menu, toolbar, layout, and dialog box widgets to Pages and Forms.
Lotus Training Audience

This course is designed for Domino programmers well versed in using Domino Designer 8.5. It assumes that you have:
  • thorough knowledge of the Domino Designer 8.5.x development environment to create browser-based applications, including Form and View design, as well as how to use properties boxes, and how to set the ACL
