I was trying with the following code.
Declare
 Item_Type varchar2(60);
 item_count number:=0;
Begin

Item_Type:=GET_ITEM_PROPERTY(:system.curren_item, ITEM_TYPE);

If Item_Type IN ('TEXT ITEM') then

  item_count:=item_count+1;

  --Code to get the item values if the item is a text item ---
  -- for exporting the data to Excel ----

End if;

End;

I am doing this to get the item_count in the form (except buttons, images etc.,) and move all the text item data to Excel sheet.

But the statement
Item_Type:=GET_ITEM_PROPERTY(:system.curren_item, ITEM_TYPE);


does not return anything to the Item_Type variable.

Any one can suggest what should have gone wrong.

Thanks,

Nirmal.

In which trigger are you doing this? Do you KNOW that the statement has been executed? That is, have you displayed the data to the screen via 'message' statements.

The statment is not getting executed at all, the program execution stops at this point. Thereafter no messages are getting displayed.


Thanks,

Can you display the current_item before the get_item_property statement?

i even tried the statment like this
Declare
it_id Item; 
ItemType Varchar2(255);
item_name varchar2(255):='YOUR_BLOCK.YOUR_ITEM';
BEGIN
 Message('1');
 Message('1');
 it_id := Find_Item(item_name); 
 Message('2');
 Message('2');
 ItemType:=Get_item_property(it_id,ITEM_TYPE);
End;
The program execution is not goind beyond the first Message.

Program halts without any response in the following statement.

it_id := Find_Item(item_name);

I am using FORMS 10g. I called Oracle support people, even they could not find a solution.

Is this a bug with Forms 10g ?

Thanks,

Nirmal

Okay.
1) Exactly which version of Forms 10g are you using and on which operating system?
2) Have you tried creating a new form and having only this code in your form?
3) Try Ctrl-Shft-K (compile all) and then Ctrl-T (Generate). It is possible that you are doing a Ctrl-K (Incremental Compile) and that may not be enough.

I can't find anything on metalink either.
