The Lotus Notes/Domino Fix List contains SPRs in various stages of the release process. I decided to use this database for a short demo of one possible use for the new GeniiRTCollection class and EPub generation. In the demo, I select certain SPR documents from the Fix List database and combine them into an EPUB file which could be sent to any mobile device that reads that format, such as an iPhone/iPad or Android device.
While the Fix List database has a public web view, this demo is intended to show how you could encapsulate Notes data without the requirement for either a web view or Notes/Domino access for the recipient. EPub data is also served up in a flow-oriented stream so that it sizes well down to the smallest device, while the automatic Table of Contents feature allows a view-like approach to navigation of the documents.
The Fix List database does not use rich text, so this is also a demonstration of how the Midas class works with a rendered form if desired. Click on the image below for the short demo:
The GeniiCollection class is a feature of the yet-to-be released Midas Rich Text LSX 5.00, and changes may be made before release.
