Hi All,


I have been strucked into the problem, where i want to open the html file in Same Form with including the items which are there on the form in Forms 10g either in Release 1 or Release 2.
I gone throgh the PJC which is working but not displaying the html file,my html file is in turn calling some .gif files from remote location that is one of the reason.

Please find the attached form form u r reference, which i want like that(Which is Forms 6i).But Now i want in 10g.
If anyone know please tell me solution/Suggestion.

What is the error that you are getting? What is the behaviour of the Form when you run it in 10g?

Aisha!

In forms 6i, you can use an OCX object to navigate to an HTML page.
The following steps may help you in doing so:

  1. in your form, insert an OCX element
  2. right-click on this object and click on "Insert Object"
  3. choose "Microsoft Web Browser" from the list. The object is now inserted.
  4. in forms menu bar, go to Programs --> Import OLE Library Interfaes.
  5. from the list, under OLE classes, choose Shell.Explorer.2 and under method packages, choose IWebBrowser2 then click OK. Now, a new package is added to your program units.
  6. in the appropriate trigger, write the following code:
    declare
      handlehtml ole2.obj_type;
    BEGIN
      synchronize;
      handlehtml := ole2.create_obj('Shell.Explorer.2');
      handlehtml := forms_ole.get_interface_pointer ('<block_name>.<ocx_name>');
      Shell_IWebBrowser2.NAVIGATE(handlehtml,'<URL>');
    END;
    

  7. run your form, and fire the trigger where you have written the code, the page specified in <URL> will be displayed in the OCX element.

Enjoy!!

Sorry, I just didn't get it! How are we hijacking other threads??
This still is in the same concept, but with difference in forms versions ...

Hi! You are welcome!!

Concerning the button, i have never had to click twice on a button to do its job, never faced this problem.

  1. Do you have any other code in the same trigger? If so, you can put debugging messages and see if they appear when you click on the button for the first time.
  2. Did you try to use another trigger (WHEN-NEW-FORM-INSTANCE for example) to see if the code is wortking properly or not?

Try these points.

I've never really faced a problem like that!
But it would be appreciated if you explain how you solved it...

hi rajy ..

first when i fire the form i click only once on the button . then if i go to the page (ocx object ) the focus will be on the ocx object not the button .. so when i click again on the button the first click is the foucs and the second one is to fire the the code which is in the button ...
so i have to write a code that everytime the focus should go to the button..

Hi!

Im glad you solved your problem that way, but I think there's something else that caused it.
I made a screen exactly like yours (or at least like what you described) and I didn't face the problem. Everytime I click the button, the page is refreshed from the first time even if I go the the OCX element. I put go_item(<ocx>) in the button so the focus is in this ocx (The cursor blinks in the search item of Google), everytime I click the button. But even though, the code is fired from the first click.
I don't know if it could be a problem of version. I am using 6.0.8.21.
