Hi everyone,

I am novice in oracle form builder and been using it for developing applications for a month.Recently, I faced a problem while using the form builder. I was modifying one of my existing file (let's call it 'a') by removing some features previously added in it as well as to revamp the old GUI in the main canvas for a new look (let's call this canvas- canvas1).

I had previously made a new canvas in another fmb file and I wanted to use it on canvas1. Thus, to save time, i hust delete all items and GUI objects in canvas1 and pasted a copied items and GUI objects (from the new canvas) into it.

However, after I compiled 'a' and run the file, my starting field (runtime) is canvas2 instead of canvas1. I do not know why and I hope any experts out there could give me an insight on what's going on.

By the way, I would like to ask if there is any shortcut to 'tweak' the file so it will display canvas1 again? Iwould be nice if so, as I need not backtrack to my previous version again(Its very time consuming if so...)

Thanks you very much

Form_a contains 'canvas1' and 'canvas2'
Another_form contains 'some_canvas'

- You have deleted all objects on 'canvas1' in 'form_a'
- You have then copied all objects on 'some_canvas' in 'another_form' and
- pasted them onto the 'canvas1' in 'form_a'
- recompiled 'form_a', run it. Focus is now on some item on 'canvas2' (instead of 'canvas1').

Right?

As far as I can tell, it is because the first navigable item in the 'form_a' is located on 'canvas2'. If you want to change that order, go to Object Navigator, open Data Blocks node and:
  • rearrange blocks' order (if necessary)
  • rearrange items' order (most probably) by dragging an item and dropping it on a new location (one above the other)
Also, check what is the Window's 'Primary Canvas' property set to (check Help to see what it means).
