Does it mean that you modify the background in the middle of the day, and want the application to use its artificial intelligence and refresh itself in order to display a new background (instead of you doing it manually)? If that's so, I don't know the answer - never did that. However, here are some ideas which will show you how to automatically reload a web page (as Forms 10g applications *are* deployed on the web).

Though, as far as I can tell (tried it right now), refreshing the Forms application's web page terminates the application and brings you back to the login form. I'm not sure that this is what you really want.

Finally, as my web-experience is close to nothing, perhaps you'd rather wait for someone else's opinion.

What I just want is to change the default background picture of forms 10g's MDI default background so i tried to do it in the formweb.cfg using background=filename.jpg but what happened is the background picture doesn't appear I need to refresh (of course it will restart the page) the page to make the selected picture becomes the mdi background picture.

My question is.
Is refreshing the webpage the only way to make my background picture as MDI's background?
If no then what settings or configuration do I need to add in formsweb.cfg

Thanks

I don't know.

Why is it important that the new background is visible as soon as you change it in FORMSWEB.CFG? How often do you do that? What's wrong if users see it when they log on to the application next time?

I just want it once and I will not do it programmatically or at runtime. the user wants the back ground picture customize.
