HI all,
is it possible to change the forms trigger sequence.

for example, i am writing 'when_validate_item' in item level,block level,form level.
First item level will fires and then block level and at last form level.
But i want to fire the trigger first at form level then block level and at last item level.

Put "form level trigger code" into "item trigger" and vice versa. Leave the "block level trigger" as is, as it fires in the middle anyway.

I'm not very serious about it; there must be something wrong with the logic, if you need to reverse firing sequence.

No, this is not the way.
with out modifying the code we have to change the trigger sequence.
i read it somewhere,it is possible by changing the trigger attributes.
but i don't know, how to do it...

I said that I wasn't serious.

Did you check "Execution Hierarchy" trigger property? It can be set to Override, Before and After (check what it means in Forms Online Help System).

There are three option of "Execution Hierarchy" of a trigger: i)Override
ii)Before
iii)After

The default trigger Execution Hierarchy is Override as
i) Item_Level trigger,
ii)Block_Level trigger &
iii)Form_Level trigger.

Your can change trigger execution hierarchy of Block Level by Setting Before & Item Level by setting After simultaneously.

You know, Property Palette window (the one that opens when you press F4)?
