Hi,

How can I open multiple forms in a session in 11G web GUI? We can do this in our older version of forms 6i but not able to do it after migration to 11G.

I have few menu items at the top of the screen. On 6i, I can see those menus when I open any form and access forms under those menus but menu items disappear on 11G when I open a form. Any idea?

Thanks,
Rashi

I think my above post doesn't make sense. Let me put it again as I understood the problem...

I have a login screen to which a menu is attached, say menu1.mmx. I open a form under this menu. This form is assigned a different menu (menu2.mmx, in the menu module property of the form). So, when I open this form menu1.mmx should be replaced by menu2.mmx. This is working fine in 6i but not on 11G. why is it not working on 11G?

Thanks,
Rashi

In the form when-new-form-instance Trigger you should do

replace_menu('%BASIS_PATH%\menu2');

It works also in Forms11.

But when I replace 'menu2.mmx' with 'default&smartbar' in the form properties, I do see default & smartbar menu during runtime. So, why not menu2.mmx is not seen ?
There seems to be a issue with menu2.mmx..I'll check and confirm

Also in the properties you have to write the mmx.file with full path and so it works fine.

Looks like some problem with menu2.mmx. I can replace other menus but not this one. It compiles Ok and path is correct, not sure why is the problem. I think if the path is not right it will throw a error saying unable to load menu file.
