Whats New in Domino Designer?

What s New in Domino Designer?

Domino Designer was introduced in R5 as a separate client devoted to designing applications. Domino Designer provides the capability to create, modify, test, and preview applications. Its purpose is to provide an integrated development environment (IDE) that provides a place for all code to be entered and tested . The IDE is covered in Chapter 3, "The Integrated Development Environment."

Most of the new features in Release 6 are for development itself, but there are a few enhancements to the IDE, including the following:

  • Design elements can be expanded and collapsed directly in the Design pane by clicking the embedded plus/minus symbols.
  • Design elements can be scrolled in the Design pane when multiple design objects exist that won't fit in the display.
  • The Tools menu is customizable.
  • A new Print Source window prints script from the Programmer's pane.
  • Multiple design elements can be updated or locked in the Work pane of Domino Designer.
  • Individual design elements can be locked, preventing others from modifying the elements.
  • Autocomplete for functions occurs as you type in the Script area of the Programmer's pane; the complete syntax for the function also is displayed.
  • Scripts running on a Domino server can be remotely debugged .
  • Breakpoints entered during a debugging session persist after the session completes and must be explicitly removed.
  • HTML code can be entered or modified in the Programmer's pane, and the results can be displayed.
