Dabbling in Bootstrap and Font Awesome Part 6-1: (re)Use Me! – Update

After using the Column Custom Control from my original post in many different applications for a while, all the sudden I ran into an issue.

Dabbling in Bootstrap and Font Awesome Part 6-2: (re)Use Me!

In Part 6-1 of my XPages and Bootstrap / Font Awesome series, I showed you how to create reusable custom controls in order to make XPages development easier and quicker again.

I know I’ve promised to show you in this part, how to use these custom controls. However, I thought I am going to add a few more reusable custom controls that might be helpful and in part 6-4, I will show you how to use them all (promise!).

So, in this part, I’ll enhance the Control Wrapper custom control I’ve created in part 6-1 and add another reusable Custom Controls: One for using Font-Awesome Icons

In part 6-3 I will show you how to create two reusable custom controls for Input Groups.

So, lets get started
