How to create a session variable in Apex?

Hello colleagues,
Is there someone do know how to create a session variable in Apex?
How to get them?
Thanks
Best Regards

Hello,
What do you mean by 'session variable'? You mean something that stores the value int he users session state?
I really recommend reading the 2-Day Developer guide documentation, there is a complete section on session state -
http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/E10513_01/doc/appdev.310/e10499/concept.htm#CIHCFHBD
Hope this helps,

  • How to use a session variable in Conditional Format?

    Hi Gurus,
    I created a session variable , called Actual_date,
    using the following SELECT:
    SELECT SYSDATE FROM DUAL
    In a report title the following expression worked fine:
    @{biServer.variables['NQ_SESSION.Actual_date']}
    I red in a reply in this forum, under the
    "Oracle BI EE Variables Overview"
    that we can use the above format in Cond.Format.
    However I got an error:
    "The value entered msut date and Time..."
    Any tips?
    Thanks
    Laszlo

    It's because when you fired
    SELECT SYSDATE FROM DUALYour variable have a LONGVARCHAR type (if I remember)
    Check here how to find the data type.
    http://gerardnico.com/wiki/dat/obiee/obi_server_variable_find_value
    If you just need to get the current date, you can try the system presentation variable current time as :
    @{system.currentTime} Good luck

  • How to create a global variable in forms 6i

    How to create a global variable in forms 6i

    :GLOBAL.my_var := 15; Well, this statement is not correct! Global variables
    stores a character string of up to 255 characters in
    length. Thus, valid statement for Khurram example
    is:
    :GLOBAL.my_var := TO_CHAR(15);
    or
    :GLOBAL.my_var := '15';
    But numeric values are implicitly converted by oracle so there's nothing in fact wrong with the statement...
    :GLOBAL.my_var := 15;
    ;)

    In my Cube i had 3 different date fields....
    and as per my requirment i need to create a rolling report for which will display data for 6 months rolling.
    As the date field which i need to use is not mapped to Time Char's (Cal Year,Cal Month...etc)
    For that reason i created below customer exit variable and used offset variables to achieve the rolling 6 months report
    Code used for Customer Exit VAriable:
    WHEN 'ZC_Cmonth1'. " Current Cal Month Car Expiry
    IF i_step = 2.
          CLEAR l_s_range.
    determine date
        LV_SYDAT     =  SY-DATUM.
        LV_YEAR_ACT  =  SY-DATUM+0(4).
        LV_MONTH_ACT =  SY-DATUM+4(2).
    Set begin date of intervall
    CONCATENATE LV_YEAR_ACT LV_MONTH_ACT '01' INTO LV_DATE_LOW.
    Set end date of intervall
    CONCATENATE LV_YEAR_ACT LV_MONTH_ACT '31' INTO LV_DATE_HIGH.
    Fill ranges-tab with: include all values between beginning of year
    and actual date
      CLEAR E_T_RANGE.
      CLEAR L_S_RANGE.
      L_S_RANGE-SIGN = 'I'.
      L_S_RANGE-OPT  = 'BT'.
      L_S_RANGE-LOW  = LV_DATE_LOW.
      L_S_RANGE-HIGH = LV_DATE_HIGH.
      APPEND L_S_RANGE TO E_T_RANGE.
    ENDIF.
    Now i need to create TEXT VARIABLE that will display the Month Name in the column name
    Please update in detail step how to create a Text Variable

    In your specific requirement select the which ever the keyfigure you want  to analyse, go to edit mode of keyfigure propeties there select the newvariable type and create the Text variable by maintaining the proper offset start and length and also maintain the in whcih format u want see the month name in column headers. Maintain the Text format or key format. it totally depends on u r requirement.
    Hope it will help ful for u.

    using the privileges we can achieve this.Although I am not new to APEX I have no idea what you are talking about.
    What is "a System Parameter in Apex"? What "privileges" are used to create one?
    You'll find it easier to get help if you use terminology that is familiar to everyone...

  • How to set a session variable

    Hi,
    I would like to know how to set a session variable for the following purpose.
    At the top of my application I have a "Welcome <username>" I'd like it instead to have "Welcome <firstname> <lastname>".
    So the concept would be after the user logs in succesfully this session variable is dynamically set so it can be displayed.

    Hi Scott,
    I realize that I can set items etc in pages. The case I'm referring to is a reference in a template. My template has a "Welcome <user name>" ... so the code looks like "Welcome &APP_USER." Anyway to make it say "Welcome first_name last_name" in the template? Note I'll have to get the first/last names from a query

    Hi Les,

    In the left hand side of the query designer, find your char and under than there will be a button with text called Characteristic Value Variables. Right click this and choose New Variable. This will open the variable wizard. You need to follow the screen to define a technical name and description, the processing type, the user entry options and if the variable will accept single or multiple values, and also if you want to set a default value.

  • Creating a session variable with PHP

    Can anyone offer me a PHP script that creates a session
    variable? The Dreamweaver CS3 Help documentation offers coding
    samples for ColdFusion and ASP but not for PHP. I tried this
    without success:
    "$_SESSION['usermail']= $_POST['sub_email'];" in which I am
    trying to capture an email address from a form and save it to use
    in a confirmation email to a new subscriber. Any help would be
    sincerely appreciated.
    [email protected]

    I use this -
    <?php
    if (!isset($_SESSION)) {
    session_start();
    ?>
    at the top of the page, and then this within the code block
    where you are
    processing the form's data -
    $_SESSION['usermail']= $_POST['sub_email'];
