Hi,
I want to read the user input value when a button is pressed in Forms ... and assign that value to the parameter of a procedure.
In Toad I used to write procedure('&name') and a popup window appeared to assign a value to 'name' field. But in Forms '&name' it is considered as a string.
How can I do that in Forms? What code should I put behind a WHEN-BUTTON-PRESSED trigger ?

Thank you.

hello
thanks for the answer ..
so, I've created a simple procedure which inserts a new and distinct record in a table
i want to call that procedure when a button is pressed (in forms) but the user will have to insert the desired record (meaning that I have to read the user input data and store that data in the procedure's parameter)

so ... is there anyway when that certain button is pressed, a window will popup and ask the user to input a value?

hope that I was clear this time Smile

You can write a code in When-button-pressed trigger in that buttion and call the stacked canvass
show_view('CANVASNAME');

get the details from the user and call the procedure with passing those values.
