Need to Quit the Entire Forms Application when I Exit A Particular Form. [message #318079] Mon, 05 May 2008 09:17 Go to next message

Hi,

I've built a forms application in Forms 6i. A parent (main) form exists. Access to other forms are set in a hierarchy.ie form A ---> form B ---> form C ---> form D. I would like to close(quit) the entire application after exiting Form D, that is, I do not want to return to the previous forms (C-->B-->A) before exiting.

I've examined CLOSE_FORM and EXIT_FORM but I believe these are not suitable. Is this a situation in which I MUST quit the Forms Runtime programmatically? I would prefer to do this by using Forms/PLSQL....or any other method.....Is it possible to do this in Forms 6i ? I would appreciate any suggestions on how to acheive this.....Thanks alot..

There is a big difference between "I do not want to return to the previous forms (C-->B-->A) before exiting" and the users not having to exit each form manually. If you were to 'exit right out NOW' you would have major memory and database clean-up issues. You need to make it LOOK like you have done just that but let the Oracle environments clean up behind itselves.

Look at the WHOLE threads pointed to by http://www.orafaq.com/forum/m/250048/67467/?srch=exit_form+global#msg_250048 and http://www.orafaq.com/forum/m/315018/67467/?srch=when-form-navigate#msg_315018
