View Full Version : Ext.nd 2.0.1 - Missing Action Bar (Shared Actions)

I just tried the new EXT.nd 2.01 Beta version and I am having a problem displaying the Action Bar in Views.

I am using the same setup as the EXT database (main.html and mainOLpage) with the html header updated from a profile document i created in the ext-nd database.

I have double checked everything i can think of and cross-checked the EXT database, but have been unable to get the Action Bar to display with "Shared Actions"

I saw what i thought was a piece of the action bar displayed below the view panel, but can't be sure as it was a very narrow band.

I finally tried a simple "create action" within a view and got the action bar to display.

Does EXT work with shared actions?

I'm not sure about the shared actions, It would depend on if/how Domino outputs them with the view Dxl. We'll check into it.

I just tried an @formula shared action and a javascript shared action and they both showed up. What type of shared action were you trying to display and what's the code for it?

Hi Jack,

To make sure i haven't made an error i just tested again as follows:

1) Opened Ext.nd view Profiles and copied the action "New App Profile"
2) Went to the "Shared Code->Actions" section and pasted in the action
3) Renamed the new "Shared Action" as "New App Profile2"
4) In the view Profiles, added in the shared action "New App Profile2"
5) Saved and Closed the view, refreshed the Web Page, shared action did not appear

Were you able to reproduce my error?

I just tried it on the Ext.nd db we have on the OpenNTF server and it works for me.

You can see it here:

Also, can you send me the results of the DXLExporter?OpenAgent call we make to get the actionbar? The url for the Ext.nd db on the openNTF server is:

So your's will be similar. In fact, if you are using FF with Firebug, just click on the "Net" section, find the DXLExporter line, right click and choose "open in new tab" and then send us a pic of the actionbar section (see the pic I've attached as an example)

What version of Domino is your server running? And on what OS platform/version?

Well, in Domino 6 it looks like shared actions aren't even returned in the dxl and in Domino 7 (not sure about 8) any updates to shared actions are not seen on views/forms until you resave the views/forms. So, we'll have to come up with a way to handle shared actions another way. We'll keep you posted.
