We have a block, displaying multiple records. According to our requirement, we need list of values against some records and do not need them against some (depending upon the data). For this purpose, we used a text item and assigned "Marlett" font to it. When we write number '7' in this font, a list type symbol is displayed. So we assigned number '7' to this text item wherever we need LOV (using set_item_instance_property). Otherwise the text field remains empty. Now the problem is that after conversion from 6i to 10g, instead of symbol, number 7 is displayed. Forms10g is not interpreting this font. We cannot use a button because of restrictions of set_item_instance_property. Can anyone please suggest something about it.

Regards
Asma

Have you considered having the buttons as separate items on another block and turning them 'on' and 'off' individually?

Alternatively, always have the button, but between it and the item have another 'item' whose 'visual attribute' your change using 'set_item_instance_property'. Typically, it is 'empty' but has different background colours.
