Hi

For Query button i was written the code like this..

clear_form(No_validate);
go_block('ec_hdr');

:lab:= 'Enter Query Mode';
set_item_property('create',ENABLED,PROPERTY_FALSE);
set_item_property('equery',ENABLED,PROPERTY_TRUE);
set_item_property('query',ENABLED,PROPERTY_FALSE);
set_item_property('SAVE',ENABLED,PROPERTY_FALSE);

set_item_property('fst',ENABLED,PROPERTY_FALSE);
set_item_property('LAST',ENABLED,PROPERTY_FALSE);
set_item_property('NEXT',ENABLED,PROPERTY_FALSE);
set_item_property('PRV',ENABLED,PROPERTY_FALSE);

--Enter_query;

For Execute query button:

begin
if :lab= 'EnterQueryMode' then
go_block('ec_hdr');
execute_query;
end if;
IF (:system.mode = 'ENTER-QUERY') THEN
-- exit_form;
-- message('hello');


null;
else

set_item_property('fst',ENABLED,PROPERTY_TRUE);
set_item_property('LAST',ENABLED,PROPERTY_TRUE);
set_item_property('NEXT',ENABLED,PROPERTY_TRUE);
set_item_property('PRV',ENABLED,PROPERTY_TRUE);

set_item_property('create',ENABLED,PROPERTY_TRUE);
set_item_property('query',ENABLED,PROPERTY_TRUE);
set_item_property('equery',ENABLED,PROPERTY_FALSE);
set_item_property('DELREC',ENABLED,PROPERTY_TRUE);
set_item_property('SAVE',ENABLED,PROPERTY_TRUE);

end if;


exception
when others then
null;
end;

This is the code which i written in both the buttons. One thing is,it is a master-detail form.
Please give the suggession how to do it.

Remove the when others then null. It makes any error invisible.

You should really learn how to debug your code. Find a way to check which branches are taken in if-statements etc.

Take a good look at the value you assign to lab as compared to the value you check it against. (By the way, this is the reason people use constants!)

Why not use the form's internal variable to check if you are in enter-query mode?!

How would it?
Query button:            :lab:= 'Enter Query Mode';
Execute query button: if :lab = 'EnterQueryMode' then

Pressing the "Query button" never enters query mode as it is commented:
--Enter_query;

Besides, why do you make things complicated? What's wrong with default Forms querying feature? Press Enter query, enter criteria, press Execute query. That's all.

What's the purpose of enabling/disabling these items?

First make it work, then make it fancy.
