Hello All,
I'm trying to call a particular block in a form. The actual call is done via fnd_function.execute. This brings up 2 blocks:

1) a find/search block
2) the block I want with the correct information based on the parameters I have passed in.

Everything so far is OK with the exception of not wanting the 'find' block to appear. I've tried to hide the associated window by using the hide_window function but this doesn't work. Anyone got any new ideas I can try ?

Thanks in advance

Quick answer - You can't hide a window/canvas while an item on that winbdow/canvas still has 'focus'. Make sure that an item on the window/canvas you want displayed has 'focus' before trying to hide the other one.

Longer answer - What are you REALLY trying to do? I believe that you are calling a form while passing parameters. Then, in the called form, you are testing to see if parameters have been passed, and if they have, you are to execute that query and only display the answer without first asking the user to enter the search elements. Is this correct? If correct, then in the When-New-Form-Instance instead of doing the 'go_item' to the 'search' area then assign the values to the 'search' items, do the 'go_item' to the 'results' area, and then do the 'execute_query'.
