even though iam able to navigate in that field.

"Display items" are not navigable by definition.

Therefore, once you set Item Type property to "Display Item", there's nothing else to do.

Paste the code, whatever you have written for the field using Get_Item_Property.

vamsi,

these fields are not being used in get_item_property.

are there any properties that i have to disable to make these fields display items??

If you change an items type to Display Item in the property palette then it's a Display item. there's nothing else to do.

If this causes you to then get "FRM-41058: No such Property for Get_Item_Property." errors then that means there is some code somewhere in your form or an attached library that is doing an illegal get_item_property on that item (probably checking a property that exists for text items but not display items). Oracle doesn't make these errors up.

You need to find that code and work out what it is doing and why.

i found out the code.below is code

GET_ITEM_PROPERTY(l_item_id, INSERT_ALLOWED) = 'TRUE'
GET_ITEM_PROPERTY(l_item_id, UPDATE_ALLOWED) = 'TRUE'
GET_ITEM_PROPERTY(l_item_id, ENABLED) = 'TRUE'


but it is in PLL. i cant change PLL.
if i make item property,
ENABLED as 'NO' and insert,update allowed as 'NO',

then will that help me?? will that allow me not to navigate??

is there any other way where i dont use 'display item' and use other properties to make it non navigable?

if you set enabled to FALSE then insert_allowed, update_allowed and navigable will get set to FALSE automatically.

But if you've got a pll that stops you from using display items you've got a major design flaw.

EDIT: missing word
