Map ESC key to "Exit" event. In 6i, I think you'll have to use Oracle Terminal editor to modify 'fmrweb.res' file (which contains key mappings). In more recent Developer Suite versions, you'd do that using any text editor.

Comment or delete such a line
115 : 0 : "F4" : 32 : "Exit"
and, instead of it, put
27 : 0 : "Esc" : 32 : "Exit"
.

I dont think that there is a trigger at form, block and item level that can sence that Esc key has been pressed. Did you checked the functional keys?

I just tested Forms 4.5 and 6.0 on AIX via emulator, and neither of them recognises 'Esc' as a valid key with the emulator that we use. You may have to do some testing to make sure that Forms can see the 'Esc' key.
