In my first "How do you do" xpages learning series I learned how to execute client side simple Java Script on xpages , Thanks to Tim Tripcony who shared interesting work around.

Actually I was trying to execute existing LS dashboard agent on xpage using client side Java Script to draw a chart. Lets see how I've done,

2- I've my Lotus Script agent ready which have logic to build flash charts ( Fusion Charts )

3- Created button "Draw Chart" on xpage and added JavaScript function "drawChart()" which is inside my JavaScript library.

You might notice I've selected "Server" tab instead "Client" one , Just following Tim's advice.

4- Open source of xpage and add your Client side JavaScript library reference .

To add Server side JavaScript library reference instead of ".js" use ".jss" and clientSide="false"

5- As per Tim's advice add additional tags in source,
so completed code will be ,

6- Switch to "Design" view of your xpage and notice now code is moved into "Client" tab ( though we have started with "Server" tab )
