Can Oracle Form Builder 10g open forms created with Developer 11g?

Hi,
Two different groups of developers developed forms in both Forms versions 10g and 11g. There will be call_forms between both versions and both will run under the same portal. Production is 10g. Is it possible to open 11g forms in 10g Form Builder? Suggestion/ solutions are appreciated.
Thanks,
Victor

It is likely you will run into issues, so I would say best not to. I have done it a couple of times by accident during migration of Forms 10g to 11g. You can still open and view the 11g forms code in the Forms 10g builder, but will likely see some objects appear as incorrect types. Saving the 11g form in such a state from the 10g Forms Builder may result in corruption.

  • Oracle Forms Builder 10g Questions

    Good day everyone,
    I want to start off by saying that I'm very new to Oracle Forms Builder (it was dumped on my table about a month ago) and I'm having some issues I need resolved in order to complete a project for a client.
    I'm looking mainly for documentation or resources that will show me how to do the following in Oracle Forms Builder 10g:
    * Use either the ENTER button or mouse click to navigate between mandatory fields in a form (currently only TAB works)
    * Populate a field[s] after pressing a search button based on a SQL query
    * Populate a field[s] on launch based on a SQL query
    * Throw a warning message if an SQL query returns with a specific result
    * Populate a drop down menu based on a SQL query (ie only show valid options to user)
    * Remove static highlighting (fields should only be highlighted if necessary, which is never on this particular form)

    I've been able to reduce my problem down to the fact that Oracle Forms Builder 10g is not configured correctly on my machine for my environment. I can seem to get Oracle Forms Builder to see my libraries. When I load the form I'm working on I get the following error:
    FRM-18108: Failed to load the following objects.
    Source Module:utlf_gui
    Source Object: TOOLBAR_MDI
    +... (many more of the one above)+
    I press ok and get the following error:
    FRM-10102: Cannot attach PL/SQL library sdsl. This library attachment will be lost if the module is saved.
    +... (many more of the one above)+
    From my various searches on the internet I've learned that this is because Oracle Forms Developer can not find the listed PL/SQL libraries and I should check my Environmental variables. I've set up two Environmental variables with the following:
    Forms_Path = C:\<project path>\Lib\   (This is the folder in the project folder where all the PL/SQL libraries are stored)
    Forms90_Path = C:\<project path>\Lib\   (This is the folder in the project folder where all the PL/SQL libraries are stored)
    I created both Environmental variables because there wasn't any consistency on the sites I was checking to which was needed.
    Also if I try to attack a PL/SQL library I get the following error:
    Attached library name <name> contains a non-portable directory specification. Remove path?
    I press yes or no and get the following error:
    PDE-PLI038 Cannot open file for use as a PL/SQL library.
    Any help is much appreciated.

  • How to insert special character from Oracle form builder 10g

    Dear all,
    I need help. how to insert special character like 'Superscript or Subscript ' from oracle form builder 10g. I had try in Oracle form builder 6i with press ALT+ASCII code in the text item and it work, but in the oracle form builder 10g this method doesn't work... would you like to help me...somebody please...
    Best Regard,
    Dedy P.T.

    What do you mean by insert ... from Forms Builder? Do you mean you want to add it as text in a string of pl/sql code or as part of boiler plate text (label) or a value on the Property Palette?
    For special characters you would need set NLS_LANG to something that would support the characters you want to use. For the Builder to see the change, you would need to set NLS_LANG to something like:
    NLS_LANG=AMERICAN_AMERICA.UTF8
    This can be done in the Windows Registry or system. As I mentioned, this will only apply to the Builder and will have nothing to do with a running form. For running forms you would need to set this in default.env. As for things like super and sub scripts, these are font formats and not necessarily characters. For the most part, I don't believe these are supported in Forms.

  • Oracle Forms Builder 10g release 2 documentation?

    I'm trying to locate a book about Oracle Forms Builder 10g release 2. I'm needing a beginner's guide. I've seen the advanced techniques one, but I can't seem to find one for someone that is just starting out. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    There are a couple of books by Albert Lulushi that will give you the basics you can build upon. These are older books, but the concepts they present are still valid.
    <ul>
    <li>Developing Oracle Forms Applications (Aug 1996)
    <li>Oracle Forms Developer's Handbook (Dec 2000)
    </ul>
    Probably more helpful would be some online tutorials. Again, some of these are a little old, but the concepts are still valid for Forms 10g and 11g.
    Although a few of the following links are for older Forms versions, the concepts are still valid across all Forms versions.
    <ul>
    <li>A Tutorial on Oracle9i Forms and Reports
    <li>Tutorial for Oracle10g Forms / Reports
    <li>iSelfSchooling - Basic Introduction to Forms
    <li>Oracle Forms 10g: Demos, Tips and Techniques
    </ul>
    Hope this helps,

  • Running first Form from Form Builder 10g

    Hi. I've upgraded my first 6i form to 10g. In Form Builder 10g (for Windows) I execute the form and it opens it in my Internet Explorer (IE) window instead of the traditional Oracle Run-time window.
    This is fine, except IE has a large header area that includes items like the Internet Address Field, the Search Field, the Back and Forward buttons, various icon buttons for printing, finding, the Tabbed Windows, the home button, etc.... With all this additional space taken up in the browser I don't have as much room for my canvas to display.
    Does this mean I have to adjust the canvas size for all my existing forms to fit this smaller IE area or can I somehow free up more space in the IE window by hidding all these default IE items?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance.

    Add these to your WHEN-NEW-FORM_INSTANCE trigger:
    -- browser (main) window
    set_window_property(forms_mdi_window, window_state, maximize);
    --inner window
    set_window_property('YOUR_WINDOW', window_state, maximize);

  • Unable to run the form from Form Builder 10g

    HI,
    I am having a problem with running a form with form builder 10g.
    I have create a form with some text boxes to display values in a table.
    When i compile and run the form it does not run The error shown is
    HTTP 403(Forbidden) You are not authorised to view this page.
    The Link used for the above is:
    http://127.0.0.1:1740/sWuCqhMKUT1btA1N5cXLCRshkJzmgKRIlCEUFd9RL520LVq0
    The port number 1740 changes everytime. I dont know why.
    I have started the OC4J instance before starting the Form Builder.
    I have made the changes to the runtime preferences in the form builder.
    http://localhost:8889/forms/frmservlet
    But it doesn't work when i try to run the form from Form Builder.
    ie Program-->Run Form
    The form works properly when using the 'Run a form on the Web Utility' provided with Developer Suite.
    Can anyone please suggest a solution. I have searched the forum but didnot find a solution.
    Thanks
    V.S.

    One of our DBAs has installed the software.
    It was a default installation, I believe, as no configuration was done during the installation except for increasing the virtual memory size.
    Post installation we changed the tnsnames.ora file and the sqlnet.ora file.
    Do i need to configure something ?
    Thanks,
    V.S.

  • How to make Form builder 10g step into libraries *.pll while remote debug

    How to make Form builder 10g step into libraries *.pll while remote debug. It attaches fine and goes through code located in form but skips pll's. In this case I am interested in debuging CUSTOM.pll. How to step into pll's and is it possible at all?

    Is the library in the same directory or within your FORMS_PATH? Note that the runtime setting in the default.env doesn't work for the builder.
    cheers

  • ORACLE reports Build 10g - Data Model - query - If statement in Alias ?

    I have the following select statement. It has the alias Survivors, Deaths and "All
    With the ORACLE reports Build 10g - Data Model - I have the following query statement. I require the alias to change. Can the following be done.
    Cases". Is it posible to use :P_LANGUAGE variable to say that -- IF :P_LANGUAGE = FRENCH THEN alias are Survivants for survivors, Décès for Deaths, Tous_les_cas for All Cases. Please advise
    SELECT ALL T_NTR_MULTIBAR.CAT, T_NTR_MULTIBAR.NUM_CASES_LEFTBAR AS Survivors,

    FROM T_NTR_MULTIBAR
    WHERE INSTANCE_NUM = :P_INSTANCENUM
    order by ORDERS

    It is no problem, you can automatically change the complete query before the report is running, which delivers you different kind of values. But the alias names does not change in the group of the data-model, although two query are running with different alias names at different times. In the data model you see the alias names of the first implemented select statement, which are the column fields in the layout.

  • Oracle Warehouse Builder 10g installation issues

    Hi All,
    I have downloaded the OWB 10g, from the site. I have Oracle 10g (Release 2) database server installed on the machine.
    When I start installing Oracle Warehouse Builder 10g, it just does the client installation and I am not able to find out were should I search for the OWB server installation?
    Even I have checked by installing the same but I just have Repository Assistant , Design Center and Repository Browser available on the machine. I could not find the Runtime Assistant & Control Center to work on?
    Can somebody help me out with these issues?
    Thanks in advance.

    Hi...
    There is an explanations..from the FAQ itself :
    How do I download and install Warehouse Builder Client versus Warehouse Builder Server?
    Warehouse Builder is a single install image that contains both Client and Server components, which are installed at the same time as part of the installation process. If the deployment target database is on the same machine as Warehouse Builder Client UI, there is one single installation process. If the deployment target database is on a separate machine, the install process has to be run twice, repeating the exact same install process on the client machine (to run the Warehouse Builder Design client) and the deployment target machine. Normally when installing the repository, either locally or remotely, the OWB software needs to be already present on the machine. However, it is possible to skip or defer the step of installing on the target deployment machine. This is referred to as a “Remote Target Configuration”. More information on this can be found in the Installation Guide, Chapter 2, “Remote Target”.
    hope this helps...
