hello everyone

The Oracle Forms Environment in my computer is as follows;

Oracle 10g,
Form Builder 10.1.2.0.2
Windows XP


****The tutorial I am learning is wrotten in Oracle 9i ****

Author: Richard Holowczak, Oracle9i Developer Suite, A tutorial on Oracle9i Forms and Reports.


We can see the platform of oracle forms runtime is similar like a Winform in the tutorial's snapshot,

./fa/6863/0/


In my case, the forms run in a web browswer by loading Java Applet when I execute "Run Form". Then we can see there is too much free space in the browser. Is it possible to maximize the Oracle forms runntime, or get the Java Applet not running in a browser but like the snpahot above?

is it possible to maximize the web-running forms to occupy the whole browser?

hi everyone, I just figured out the query above and gained some knowledge that I am willing to share with you.
./fa/6866/0/
The Java Applet controls the size of Run Form, so we should adjust the parameters of width and height.

In my case, the path of this file is

C:\Oracle\DevSuiteHome_1\forms\server\formsweb.cfg

Then we adjust these parameters

*****BEFORE******
# Forms applet parameter
width=750
# Forms applet parameter
height=650


**** AFTER ******
# Forms applet parameter
width=100%
# Forms applet parameter
height=100%

Once we get a maximized platform, we can also customize size of forms and windows by Set_Form_Property or Set_Window_Property
