List item problem in Forms 6i

I have two table columns that should appear as list items in the application. The items are placed in a data block is filled by a master-detail-relation. The table columns have the type varchar2(60). If I create text items of that size for the two columns, the query works fine. But changing them to list items causes FRM-40350. Any ideas to help me solve this problem are appreciated.
Best regards,

Hi Francois,
thank you for your contribution. I know, that I have to use record groups to populate the poplists. That's not the real problem. In fact, querying the block containing the two list items fetches no records if the two items are designed as list items and not as text items. Can you give me some hints on that ?
Best regards,

  • Customising a SharePoint list content type form - "Manage multiple list items with this form"

    I have designed a form for a content type on an existing SharePoint list.  When I ran the initial wizard, I selected

  • List item problem in oracle forms 6i

    I've 10 test filed, in-front of each text field there are 10 list item (separate list item)

    On text fields I am fetching records from another file. User will map the list item with text item.
    What i want to check is, list item should not get repeated. i.e suppose I've run time display like this
    text item
    list item
    on text filed B- DELIVERY DATE is assign and at text field D again DELIVERY DATE is assign. I want to avoid this thing and prompt the user regarding the same. How should I go about this? Should I design a button for validation, if yes then what should be the code? or should i go with WHEN-LIST-CHANGE? if so, then what should be the code?
    my design time display is like this
    list item
    please suggest something
    Thank You

    THe most user-friendly way would be to remove elements from all other lists when they are chosen once. You would have to have a WHEN-LIST-CHANGED-trigger on all listitem and populate the the listitems accordingly.

  • List item problem - couldn't pick a value

    Dear professionals,
    i used Andreas's code to dynamically populate list item ( and it works fine (nice work Andreas)!
    My problem is that i couldn't pick any value from list - I see many values, but there is now way to choose any of them. (video and picture are here:
    Also, i spotted that it's not possible to use Combo-box property along with encapsulating procedure - the form is just not opened...
    I'm using JRE 1.6, 10gR2 (10.1.2) F&R...
    Does anyone know why is that ?

  • List Item in Oracle forms

    Hi all,
    I have one list tiem(Combo Box) and I have some element in the list like:
    What I want to do is when my user press B from keyboard the list will show or sort the item starting with B first and and rest of the item. Can I do it? Please reply.

    no chance. When your focus is in the item you cannot change the elements on key-pressed. This is a feature that forms has only in LOV's. Maybe you should use a LOV instead.

  • Unable to select the value from a list item in forms 6i

    Hi ,
    I'am using forms 6i. I have created a list item in my form as below.
    Item_type = list item
    list style - popup list
    elements in list - A, B, C,D
    When I open the form all the above values are displayed for the list item. But I'am unable to select the item( either A,B,C,D).
    Please let me know if I need to add any thing else programatically to acheive this. The block on whixh these values are diplayed is a datablock.
    This is very urgent. Any suggestions would be of great help.

    If you have a list item where you have:
    Display A value 1
    Display B value 2
    Display C value 3
    Display D value 4
    If want to initial the value of the item to be A, you can set the initial value of the item to 1 in the property pane.
    Otherwise in an initialisation triger have
    :block.list_item := 1;

  • SET element of LIST ITEM

    I have a List Item on my form in which I am populating data in tree format...and that list item populates the data based on a check box form is like this
    Account # : ___________
    Description : ____________________________
    [ X ] Sub Account of : __________________(<------ this is my List item (Pop item)
    and when user selects the value it returns the code and save it on COMMIT;
    now my problem is whenever I do the execute_query the list box element doesnt set accordingly ...hummm. let me explain this way...i have accounts like this
    10000 - Assets
    11000 Current Asset
    11101 Cash in hand
    11102 Petty Cash
    12000 Fixed Assett
    12100 Building
    12101 Building # 1
    now if am creating a sub account I will fill my form like this
    Account # : 11101
    Description : Cash in hand
    [ X ] Sub Account of : __________________(<------ this is my List item (Pop item)
    now if i want a sub account I fill this pop list and it appeared like this
    10000 - Assets |
    11000 Current Asset |
    11101 Cash in hand |
    11102 Petty Cash |
    12000 Fixed Assett |
    12100 Building |
    12101 Building # 1 |
    suppose I select 11000 - Current Asset (make it parent account) from the list and
    in the pop list this entry remains after commit and clear_block it clears the block and ready for a new record...
    My question is that when I execute the query all the values comes exactly but the list item perticular element should also be set accordingly can I set the list item element according to the rest.
    Hope I am describing my problem well otherwise plz ask me again.

    as the list item is a control item, it won't be auto-queried while executing query on the base table block. what you can do is, write the post-query trigger to assign the value of parent_account (sub_account_of) to this list item.
    hope it helps.

  • Populating List Item From View

    I have two data blocks in my form, one named USERS which contains updateable fields to a table from the view and another data block called CONTROL which are all list items that currently populate on a WHEN-MOUSE-CLICK trigger. The list items work as expected for the WHEN-MOUSE-CLICK trigger. However, my problem is trying to populate the list items based on a selection previously chosen and saved to the table (yes, the values are in the table and are selectable through the view). I have a seperate population for this occurrance in the WHEN-NEW-FORM-INSTANCE at the form level, as well as on KEY-SCRUP, KEY-SCRDOWN, WHEN-NEW-RECORD-INSTANCE, and POST-QUERY at the USERS data block level. The only way the list items populate on a previously chosen and saved value is if you choose (WHEN-MOUSE-CLICK trigger) the list of values and save. From then on, as I scroll through the data retrieved in the USERS data block the corresponding data in the users view shows up in the CONTROL block list items. How do I get my form to initially show the corresponding list item data on form load when it is already in a WHEN-NEW-FORM-INSTANCE and POST-QUERY trigger on form load?
    Thanks in advance for any clue to point me in the right direction.

    The form is for editing a current student information system user who we will be extracting data for an OBIEE IDM import. All of the fields displayed in the OBIEE_USERS data block can be edited. For the CONTROL block list items I would like them to display the current value chosen for the user displayed in the OBIEE_USERS data block. When the CONTROL block list items are clicked on then a list of values are displayed in which the logged in form user can chose another value which ultimately changes the choice for the user displayed in the OBIEE_USERS data block. This all works fine in my current form except the list items do not display the current user selected in the OBIEE_USERS data block's saved value until the list item is selected, a value chosen, and a save is committed to the table tied to the OBIEE_USERS data block. From that point I can scroll through the OBIEE_USERS block and the list item displays the correct value for the selected user, if there are values (some users have NULL values). I have currently worked around this issue by displaying the fields in the OBIEE_USERS block and only use the list items for the changing selection. I did this because I needed a proof of concept for the pilot roll-out and could no longer wait to figure this issue out (it should be more simple it seems). I am still interested in resolving this as I feel it is a great functionality for the form.
