Martin Giffy D'Souza on Oracle APEX: Updateable Interactive Report for APEX

Using Interactive Reports (IR) was the preferred approach as it would allow users to filter the data to modify the rows they wanted to before submitting the page. Tabular forms wouldn't work since the page would be to large. This is the solution that I proposed to make "Updateable IRs". The following solution will work with IRs and standard reports with pagination. If the users applies filters or paginates to another set of data, the changes they make will remain in the collection.

Types of Conditions. Process to run with Multiple Buttons. For new APEX developers, adding a page process condition can be a bit confusing at first when basing it on multiple buttons.

Process to run with Multiple Buttons

This post will go through a scenario on how to easily use multiple buttons in a page condition. The Setup A classic example of having multiple buttons on a page is when you want to save or update a record. The Save button should only appear for new records, whereas the Update button should only appear for existing records. The catch is that when saving and updating the page you may need to run the same process. The following setup highlights this classic example. Tabular Form : No. of rows. Tabular Form - Number of rows. Read only column in tabular form. Align apex_item.text value. Right Justify Input Text. Recently, I was asked how to right-justify text in user-editable fields.

Right Justify Input Text

It seemed like a simple enough requirement, as most number-based fields are right-justified so that you can perform quick calculations in your head, or just have them look pretty if you're not so good at math. In any case, there are two different ways to accomplish this in Apex, depending on what type of object you are trying to modify. For a Page Item, you may be tempted to change the Horizontal/Vertical alignment option under the Elements section. Close, but that won't quite do the trick, as that parameter controls ALL of the HTML for a specific item, not the Form component. In the same Element, section, you will need to enter the following for the HTML Form Element Attributes: style="text-align:right;" Store Date Time with Oracle Apex. Change Font Size of Help Text.

Change Font For An Application

However, as Oracle have used it in theme 20, you have to use it in your override. To implement an override, place after the lines in the Header section of each page template in the application you are modifying. It's advisable to rename the resulting theme for this app to reflect that it's been modified, and export and save it in case it needs to be restored or applied to another app in the future.

Customizing Validation Error Messages. APEX validations allow a server-side validation to occur for a number of different conditions - item not null, item is numeric/alphanumeric, regular expressions, etc.

Customizing Validation Error Messages

When a validation fails, you have four options to display the corresponding error message: Inline with FieldNotification MessageBoth inline with field & Notification MessageSeparate Error Page With a simple template modification, you can create a fifth option, which is a variation of option #3 above. It will still display the message in the notification, but only highlight the label of the item in question.

Automatic Printing

Basically we have an oracle job that is called from the application whenever we want to print a label, this in turn calls a linux script passing in the parameters of the printer name and the values to be printed and this prints out 3 barcodes on the small wireless QL320plus Zebra printers.

I’m pleased to announce that in ApEx 4.0 you can do this declarative by using a new region type: “Region Display Selector”. To set it up just follow these simple steps: JQuery Tabbed Region.
