Displaying Icons on Push Buttons

Forms 10g no longer supports ICO files as icons for the buttons. You will need to convert your icon files into GIF or JPG format.

Design time Configuration

To display the icons in your Forms builder, modify your windows registry Hkey_Local_Machine\Software\Oracle\<Forms10g_Home>\UI_ICON by entering the path of your GIF/JPG files for e.g. C:\MY_APP\ICONS.

Runtime Configuration

1) Creating Jar file

i) Once you are ready with your GIF files or JPG files, create a folder called ICONS. You can create this folder anywhere. For e.g. you can create ICONS folder on a C drive under root directory or as a sub-folder under any folder.

ii) Assuming you have created ICONS folder as a root folder on C drive, now copy all your GIF files in this folder.

iii) Go to the DOS prompt and enter cd\

iv) At C:\ prompt enter the following command to create Java Archive File (JAR) called my_icons
Jar –cvf my_icons.jar icons

v) Copy this file in <Forms10g_Home>\Forms\Java folder.

Please remember that having the name of the folder holding GIF/JPG files as ICONS is very important. Because if the folder name is something else, icons will not be displayed in your form at run time. This reason is not mentioned anywhere in Oracle’s documentation. I learnt about this through metalink (Service Request no. 6602276.993) after struggling for more than one day to display the icons.

2) Modify REGISTRY.DAT file

i) Open this file located in <Forms10g_Home>\forms\java\oracle\forms\registry folder.

ii) Append the existing parameter default.icons.iconpath as follows:
default.icons.iconpath=icons/

iii) If you are going to use GIF files as image files for icons, then leave the existing parameter default.icons.iconextension=gif as it is. If you want to use JPG files instead of GIF files, replace GIF with JPG as shown below:
default.icons.iconextension=jpg

3) Modify FORMSWEB.CFG file

This file exists under <Forms10g_Home>\Forms\Server folder.

Append the following existing parameters:
i) imagebase=codebase
ii) archive_jini=frmall_jinit.jar,frmwebutil.jar,jacob.jar,my_icons.jar

All other setting are same mentioned by you.

Thanks for the Co-operation.

1. Go to "Oracle_HOME"/forms/java/oracle/forms/registry
2. Open registry and change the following parameter (change IP) accordingly
3. default.icons.iconpath=http://your_IP:7778/forms/icons
4. default.icons.iconextension=gif
5. go to "Oracle_HOME"/forms/server/form.config
6. add the following line and change accordingly
7. AliasMatch ^/forms/icons/(..*) "c:\icons/$1"

where c:\icons is the icons directory.

Hope this helps


Note "Oracle_HOME" is application server home not Developer Home.

Kashif

Hi All,

I am facing the same problem:

Version 10.1.2.0.2 on Solaris 10
Installation Type Forms and Reports Services

In mycfgfile.cfg,
imageBase has been set to codeBase, archive_jini set to my_icons.jar

In Forms Font and Icon Mapping (Registry.dat), I have set default.icons.iconpath to /oracle/ias10g/10.1.2/forms/java.
and
default.icons.iconextension to JPG


I have copied my_icons.jar to /oracle/ias10g/10.1.2/forms/java

Before creating the jar file (my_icons.jar), the images had extension .JPG


My icons are not being displayed Sad

Please check the following procedure which worked out for me.
1. <<home>>\forms\java\oracle\forms\registry\registery.dat
file add :default.icons.iconpath=SANJEEV/
and default.icons.iconextension=gif
2. This SANJEEV will be folder in which you save all the .gif
files.
3. Make a directory SANJEEV in
<<home>>\forms\java\
4. Copy all gif files to SANJEEV folder.
5. In command prompt enter the path for java.exe
path=d\ORACLE_APPLICATIONS\jdk\bin
6. Now in command prompt goto the SANJEEV folder.
7. In command prompt type
jar -cvf my_icons.jar *.gif
8. Move the file that is created ie. my_icons.jar to
\\<<home>>\forms\java folder.
9. In formsweb.cfg add to existing
archive=frmall.jar,my_icons.jar
archive_jini=frmall_jinit.jar,my_icons.jar

The above configuration should solve the problem.
