How to Compile Oracle Forms in R12

Last Updated on September 16, 2022

In Oracle R12, there’s a command called “compile form” that lets you add custom code to your forms. But what if you want to customize the form? Then you’ll need to use this command when creating a custom form. In this article, I’ll show you how to do that. Also, I’ll explain how to add a KEY-DOWN trigger on a CALENDAR data block item.

Compiling KEY-DOWN trigger on CALENDAR data block

When we want to compile a KEY-DOWN trigger on a calendar data block, we have a few options available. First, we can compile a KEY-DOWN trigger on a form. This trigger will be triggered when a user presses the key ‘DOWN’ on the form. Second, we can compile a KEY-LISTVAL trigger on the BLOCKNAME data block, a KEY-NEXT-ITEM trigger on the SAMPLE_FOLDER data block, a PRE-QUERY trigger on a form, and a KEY-DOWN or KEY-UP and a WHEN-MOUSE-UP-OR-ENTRY trigger on a calendar. Lastly, we can compile

Once you’ve done this, you can start creating the trigger. In Oracle R12, the trigger can contain a list of items that the user can query for. For example, if the user presses ‘FIND Employees’, a new window is opened. All the items in the Results block will be copied to the Find window. Then, when the user presses the ‘Search Employees’ button, the results block will display all the relevant employees for the current query.

You can use pre-query triggers to validate the query criteria and provide additional information to the database. Pre-query triggers fire only once for each record fetched. If you want to use pre-query triggers with an Oracle database, read the following tips:

First, you must know that system variables are used to keep track of the internal state of Oracle Forms. You can use these variables to control the behavior of your application. Hence, it is important to understand the purpose of each system variable. In this article, we’ll discuss about the uses of system variables in Oracle R12.

A post-query trigger is a trigger that executes a predefined action after a record has been fetched from the database. It fires one time for every record and populates items in control blocks and other data blocks. A key trigger differs from other triggers in a few ways. A key trigger maps to a function key on a computer keyboard. The type of function key you use will depend on your computer.

A When-Remove-Record trigger performs an action when the user deletes or clears a record. A When-Button-Pressed trigger performs an action when the user presses a button or double-clicks an image. A When-Checkbox-Changed trigger initiates an action when the user selects a radio button in a radio group item. Finally, When-Window-Activated trigger responds to user activation of a window.

Compiling KEY-DOWN trigger on NEXT_YEAR item in CALENDAR data block

You’re compiling a KEY-DOWN trigger on the NEXT_YEAR item in the calendar data block of Oracle R12. You should also check the Horde_Mime_Part#is8bit() method. It is more comprehensive and accurate, but you must specify the charset information. There is also a new Mime_Viewer() method that allows you to convert a spreadsheet without creating a temporary file.

  • Updated Horde_Imap_Client class to accept MIME headers. This class now returns mailbox names in UTF-8, and makes the EAI data parser optional. The MIME headers and group properties of Horde_Imap_Client_Base are now compiled into Horde_Imap_Client object.
  • Horde_Imap_Client_Base#status(): Adds functionality to Horde_Imap_Client and fixes issues with some HTTP clients. The Horde_Imap_Client_Base#status() function removes STATUS_LASTMODSEQ and STATUS_LASTMODSEQ_SEQ.
  • Horde_ActiveSync_Mime: Added a function to handle recurrence exceptions when an event no longer recurs. It also fixes an issue when deleting events in a dynamic view. The Horde_Imap_Adapter:Adds a new property called ’emptyMailbox’. This method also fixes an issue when the server tries to access an item with a reverse login.

The Horde_Registry class has been improved. It now has a getAuthInfo() method and a getAuthApps() method. This package also contains a new Horde_Core_Cache_Session class that abstracts the Horde_Core_Cache_Request class.

Fixes: The ‘keydown’ parameter is no longer required. The KEY-DOWN trigger has been changed to allow for the use of non-serialized Envelope data. The Horde_Imap_Client_Data_Sync object now accepts non-7bit characters. Also, this object now adds ‘changed’ and ‘vanished’ return values for IMAP servers that do not support CATENATE.
