Once my user has completed his/her tasks in oracle forms, is there a way of closing Windows Internet Explorer programmatically through Oracle Forms?

I am not interested in the close_form built-in which simply closes the current window/form within the MDI frame(window). I want a sub-routine to shut down the MDI window at the same time while closing Windows Internet Explorer or the current tab page programmatically from Oracle Forms!

My desire is to have this routine called through a button on a canvas.

Any help would be appreciated.

It has been a while for me since I did this kind of thing. I seem to recall in the old days we used ORA_FFI (foreign function interface). You basically have to determine the DLL from windows that contains the function call you need to end a process or close a window or whatever, then use ORA_FFI to find/load/register/call/release the function in the dll. There may or may not be additional plsql work you need to do as well.

If you are running on the web then you need to use WEB_UTIL features for this too. You have some work ahead of you. Here is a place to get you started.

Good luck, Kevin
