hi
i'm trying to learn Hierarchical Tree
i've created Hierarchical Tree item. based on record group.

in diz. time if i press the button to attach
record group to my Hierarchical Tree. it gives me error

frm-40105 unable to resolve refe. item.

what is this

i'm fade up of this pl. help me

if posiibal send me code of Hierarchical Tree list @

About Hierarchical Trees - Overview
The hierarchical tree displays data in the form of a standard navigator, similar to those used in Oracle Developer.
You can populate a hierarchical tree with values contained in a Record Group or Query Text. At runtime, you can programmatically add, remove, modify, or evaluate elements in a hierarchical tree.

The amount of data displayed at any one time depends upon the expansion of individual data nodes, whether through built-ins or a user clicking on a node. The data set generally will be initially specified in Form Builder, and may be modified or entirely replaced at runtime.

Return to Contents

Adding Data to Hierarchical Trees
You can add data to a tree view by:

Populating a tree with values contained in a record group or query by using the Populate_Tree built-in.
Adding data to a tree under a specific node by using the Add_Tree_Data built-in.
Modifying elements in a tree at runtime by using built-in subprograms.
Adding or deleting nodes and the data elements under the nodes.

Note: All built-ins are located in the FTREE built-in package.

-- Hierarchical Tree Example

--

-- The first action will typically be to populate the

-- hierarchical tree (htree) with data.

DECLARE

htree ITEM;

BEGIN

-- Find the tree itself.

htree := Find_Item('tree_block.htree3');

-- Sets the record group and causes the data to display.

Ftree.Set_Tree_Property(htree,

Ftree.RECORD_GROUP,

'record_group5');

END;

-- Tree Node Expansion Example

--

-- This code will expand all nodes in a tree.

DECLARE

htree ITEM;

BEGIN

-- Find the tree itself.

htree := Find_Item('tree_block.htree3');

-- Find the root node of the tree.

node := Ftree.Find_Tree_Node(htree, '');

-- Loop through all nodes and expand each one if it is collapsed.

WHILE NOT Ftree.ID_NULL(node) LOOP

state := Ftree.Get_Tree_Node_Property(htree,

node,

Ftree.NODE_STATE);

IF state = Ftree.COLLAPSED_NODE THEN

Ftree.Set_Tree_Node_Property(htree,

node,

Ftree.NODE_STATE,

Ftree.EXPANDED_NODE);

END IF;

node := Ftree.Find_Tree_Node(htree, '', search_root => node);

END LOOP;

END;

-- Delete Tree Node Example

--

-- This code will delete all tree nodes marked as selected. See the

-- Ftree.Set_Tree_Selection built-in for a definition of "selected".

DECLARE

htree ITEM;

num_selected NUMBER;

BEGIN

-- Find the tree itself.

htree := Find_Item('tree_block.htree3');

-- Find the number of nodes marked as selected.

num_selected := Ftree.Get_Tree_Property(htree, Ftree.SELECTION_COUNT);

-- Loop through nodes and delete them. Since nodes are internally

-- re-numbered when one is deleted, be sure to loop in reverse

-- order from last to first.

FOR j IN num_selected..1 LOOP

Ftree.Delete_Tree_Node(htree, Ftree.Get_Tree_Selection(htree, j));

END LOOP;

END;

Creating a Hierarchical Tree
To create a hierarchical tree:

In the Object Navigator, click the plus icon beside the desired block node. Form Builder expands the block node and displays its subnodes.
Click the Items node.
Click the Create button in the toolbar. A new item with a default name is inserted under the Items node.
Double-click the object icon beside the new item to display the Property Palette.
Under the General node, set the Item Type property to Hierarchical Tree.
Under the Physical node, set the Canvas property to the name of the desired canvas. Note: To display an item at runtime, you must assign it to a canvas.
Return to Contents

Format of Data Used to Populate a Hierarchical tree
The columns in the record groups or queries used to populate a hierarchical tree are:

Initial state
Node tree depth
Label for the node
Icon for the node
Data

For example, the data in the table below would produce the following hierarchical tree:

Initial State
Depth
Label
Icon
Data

-1
1
'Car'
null
'car'

0
2
'Honda'
null
'civic'

1
1
'Airplane'
null
'plane'

0
2
'Boeing'
null
'747'

0
2
'Boeing'
null
'757'

Return to Contents

Manipulating a Hierarchical Tree at Runtime

Form Builder provides triggers that you can use to respond to events that occur when the end user interacts with the hierarchical tree at runtime.

When-Tree-Node-Activated
When-Tree-Node-Expanded
When-Tree-Node-Selected

At runtime, you can programmatically add, remove, modify, or evaluate elements in a hierarchical tree by using the following built-in subprograms:

Add_Tree_Data
Add_Tree_Node
Delete_Tree_Node
Find_Tree_Node
Get_Tree_Node_Parent
Get_Tree_Selection
Populate_Group_From_Tree
Populate_Tree
Set_Tree_Selection

Note: All built-ins are located in the FTREE built-in package.

Return to Contents

Populating a Hierarchical Tree
You can populate a hierarchical tree with values contained in a Record Group or Query Text by using the following built-in subprogram:

Populate_Tree
Add_Tree_Data

Note: All built-ins are located in the FTREE built-in package.

Return to Contents

Setting Hierarchical Tree Item Properties
To set a hierarchical tree item property in Form Builder:

In the Object Navigator, double-click the object icon beside the desired hierarchical tree.
In the Property Palette, select the property you want to set.
Set the selected property to the desired setting.

You can set properties during runtime by using the following built-ins:

Get_Tree_Node_Property
Get_Tree_Property
Set_Tree_Node_Property
Set_Tree _Property

Note: All built-ins are located in the FTREE built-in package.

Return to Contents

Specifying an Initial Value for a Hierarchical Tree
To specify an initial value for a hierarchical tree:

In the Object Navigator, double-click the object icon beside the desired hierarchical tree object to display the Property Palette.
Under the Functional node, indicate the Record Group or Query Text that contains the initial values.

Note: These are indicators of the initial values, but nothing appears without populating the tree with the Populate_Tree built-in.
