Search this forum for 'MDI' or 'status bar' to see the questions that other participants have asked about this structure. You should also read the section of the reference manual about 'mdi'.

But basically I believe the answer is 'no'. What you see is the maximum you can get.

Hi,

I too believe that was not possible but when i saw bottom_title (Editor property) in forms help it lighten the hope what is it and how we can use it in set_window_property built in.

Thanks for reply

However, you may change forms' "title bar" (the one on the top), if this satisfies you. Something like this:

WHEN-WINDOW-ACTIVATED trigger:
Set_Window_Property(forms_mdi_window,TITLE,'Program:  '||
                                             get_application_property(current_form_name)||
                                             '          '||
                                             'User:  '||
                                             get_application_property(username)||'    '||
                                             to_char(sysdate,'dd.mm.yyyy'));

We use it on 10g, yes. I don't have any previous version to check whether it would work on 9i or 6i.

'Bottom_title' is not in the reference manual of 6i or 9i.

Thanks for reply.

I found these from the oracle forms 6i help by writing bottom title in the search box.

Bottom Title (Editor) property
Description

Specifies a title of up to 72 characters to appear at the bottom of the editor window.

Applies to editor

Set Form Builder

Required/Optional optional

I was communicating in this respect. May be m wrong.

Thanks

Dear jawwikhan
Salaam,

What you want cannot be done, however as a programmer I dont have the word impossible in my dictionary. So you can do this by another way.

Make a stack canvas and design it like the status bar. Put some non-base table items on this stack canvas. Display it on your main canvas at the bottom just like the form's status bar. And populate the items that you have placed on the stack.

I m sure that this will solve your problem.

Regards,
Azam Khan
