Scenario: I have two field Empno, Ename in which Required Property set to Yes. When i press exit button leaving Empno blank then system wont allow me to exit and a message appear: Field must be entered. i tried with "set_item_property('empno',required,property_false)" define in the trigger(when_button_pressed) but problem not resolved yet.

Switch your caps lock off. All caps is considered shouting in all internet forums. There's no need for it.

Is the button in a different block? If so then moving to a different block causes the required checks to fire. This happens before any code in the when-button-pressed is executed.
Try changing the form level property defer required enforcement

You've completely missed the point of what I said.
The set_item_property isn't working because it's not being executed in the first place.
The required check stops the button code from being run at all.
Changing the form level property 'defer required enforcement' (not the item level required property) should fix it.
Read up on defer required enforcement in form builder help.
