Dear all experts,

I have a form which make use of the WEBUTIL_HOST.HOST command to call up a VB application, it is successfully done. However, the VB apps need to be closed before the focus can go back
to the Forms application.

My question is : Can I start up the VB apps and then go back to the Forms apps without closing the VB apps ? This is because the user need to switch between both apps to do their work.
Can this be done ?

Thanks a lot !

I think if you look in the webutil library, you will find a procedure called webutil_host.nonblocking that is calling a host command without blocking the current forms.

By default, the client_host command is calling webutil_host.blocking, so this is why you can not go back in your form.


hope it help

Hi,

We still not yet solved this problem.

Actually, we try to call other apps, it's works fine.

So, we are checking the apps which are being called.

Thanks1

Search this forum for 'log'. There is a recent thread about reviewing the Application Server or Developer Server performance and behaviour by adding a log to 'formsweb.cfg'. There may be something in it to tell you what is happening.

Can you tell me how I can block the form while working on the IE browser. I opened the google.com from the form and wanted to block the form when working on IE. I used client_host to invoke the google.com. Can anybody tell me how can i freeze the form?

Try using webutil_host.blocking instead

Thanks for your response.

I tried it but no luck. I am able to freeze the form when I open notepad, word doc and adobe but not for IE8. what could be the issue with IE? Is there any way I could block the form when working on the browser.
