I have an xPages application which uses a Custom Control for authentication. I am now looking for a solution where if the client (browser) times out, instead of getting the Domino login screen I would like to go to a designated page which includes the login custom control.
So far I have tried lots of tricks but the only thing I managed to get to work is on pages that do not have a data source. There I simply check if the user in "Anonymous" and if that is correct I redirect them to my special page. On all other xPages I get the "standard" login screen.

Thanks Brian for your comment, I ran into the same issue and now got it working.
Little addition, if you want to control access to data via an XPage through roles:
-create one aclEntry, and do define a name (compulsory, can be any string), right and type = Default
-create the actual aclEntry you are looking for, define the right and type = Role, and the name as defined in database's ACL (remember to put the name in squary brackets e.g. [Marketing]

Just wanted to add to this to maybe save someone else some time figuring it out. Apparently, if you do not include an entry for default in the acl, setting access for a group or role results in no access to the page at all.

@Rob - I changed my blog so you should now see a better description. Maybe google is caching the old title?
With regards to the reader fields, you need to remember there is a separation between the data and the UI. So documents can still have readers and authors fields as normal and that security is honoured in the XPages. All you need to do to store readers and authors fields is add them to your form as you always have done, and then when saving data with an XPage, set the data binding to do a computewithform, this will force any computed fields on the form to be calculated and stored on the document.

By the way, did I mention that in Google Reader your blog name and Matt White's are identical? They both show the enlightening name of Blog.

I'm a long time Notes developer but new to XPages. So new I don't even know if I can put a Notes field on an XPage. I find the use of Reader Fields to be very powerful and use them all the time. Does XPages have the equivalent of Reader Fields and Author Fields?

This acl property is available too in a Panel and in a Include Page control, along with the XPage itself.
More here on how to get going.
