Hi All,
What am trying to accomplish is simple :
Say we have a form with one button "but1" and a text element "mess".

When we click on "but1", something will be preocessed.

What am trying to do is to put in "mess", at the begining of the process, something like "Processing..."

The PL/SQL code of the trigger "WHEN-BUTTON-PRESSED" looks like :

:mess := 'Processing...';

/*
	The process..
*/

:mess := 'Done !';


But when the button is pressed, the form is freezed and the message 'Processing...' is not displayed. Only 'Done !' is displayed at the end of the process.

Any Ideas ?

Thank you.

Hello,

It doesn't compile also and if i declare the mess as variable and remove the colon sign i.e


declare

mess varchar2(100);

begin
:mess := 'Processing...';
synchronize;

end;

then i can compile but doesn't show any kinds of message or errors.
Please help me to sort out the problem.

Thanks a lot its working fine.

Can u help me a little more abt that i want to show the completion message also as "Done" or something like that after complete.

For example i want to see the message while running a report from menu and during the processing the message shows "Processing..."
as it works and after completion of that report it should show "Done".

Thanks

Arif

So set the item to 'Done' at the end.
