Hi,

I have a problem in Oracle Forms 10g. For any field that should be by default
right-to-left (arabic), the reading order is changed when entering the field, but
the keyboard is not changed to Arabic automatically. The user has to type ALT+
Shift to manually modify the language.

I worked before with Forms 2000 and Forms 6i (in client/server mode only), it
was working fine. Is it impossible on Web Forms?
Must I use a Java Bean? If yes, is there something existing to perform what I
need?

Thanks,

I have only set in the .env file the following:

NLS_LANG=AMERICAN_AMERICA.AL32UTF8 because I need the application interface to be in English, but with a few arabic fields

in 10g or 9i you can handle all this with NLS setting with unicode setting. from this you can handle all other language which oracle supported.
forms 6i only support those language which set in their properties. you have u change it dynamically..

set_item_property('ename',direction,left_to_right);
SET_ITEM_PROPERTY('ENAME',PROMPT_FONT_NAME,'Times New Roman');
SET_ITEM_PROPERTY('ENAME',FONT_NAME,'MS PGothic');


applying this successfully change the direction,
but still keep writing language from previous item whatever it is Arabic or english.

is it possible to dynamically change the initial keyboard state.. if yes. what is property name
