How to get XPages and Bootstrap3_xxx themes to work (or how to check that XPages is correctly installed)?

Tags: Lotus Notes Xpages Question

Warning – Not that experienced XPages programmer here Smile 

I have been fiddling around with the Single Page Application control in XPages, but I never got it to work properly with the Bootstrap3, or Bootstrap3_flat themes. In fact it only worked with OneUI before FP8. I supect that I have some issue with XPages on the server.

Below you see a screen shot of the result in Chrome;


My question is therefore – Does anybody know how to check if XPages is is properly installed on the server? I search around and find some details, but a lot of the information seems somewhat old (2014’ish), and the nomenclature seems different now and pretty fragmented. I guess I am also a little confused about what features that still needs ExtLib and what has been moved to the core product with FP8.


[SOLVED] - Post FP8 install - Does anybody know where the Xpages "Mobile" controls palette has gone?

Update March 16th, 2017: Maire Kehoe (one of the lead developers on the XPages team as far as I remember) posted an answer on this blog and that was “The Mobile controls no longer appear in the palette by default. To re-add them, go to the menu File, Preferences, Domino Designer, XPages, Palette Check the check-box beside: Mobile and click OK.”. There it was;


Thanks Maire!

Original post follows;

After installing the latest and greatest FP8, I realized that the Extension Library shifted a lot of components from ExtLibX into the ExtLib.

One thing I can’t seem to find any more is the “Mobile controls” – which contained the “Single Page Application” wizard amongst other things.

Does anybody know the whereabouts of the Mobile controls in the post-FP8 world?



How I added Textbox.io rich text editor to XPages

What about replacing the built in rich text editor in XPages with a super-modern editor which accepts image-pasting directly, without configuring anything on the server?
