Hi,
I am trying to use Webutil_host.NonBlocking_With_Callback.
When I invoke a txt document via notepad, it works fine but not for doc file
This is for Notepad:
V_PROCESS_ID := WebUtil_Host.NonBlocking_With_Callback('NOTEPAD '||C:\Test.txt, 'CALL_BACK');
This works absolutely fine,it opens the txt file and my code in Call_Back trigger gets fired when I close the 'Notepad Application'

But when I want to open word doc I cannot use above code. so I have to use
v_cmd := 'cmd /c C:\Test.doc';
V_PROCESS_ID := WebUtil_Host.NonBlocking_With_Callback(v_cmd , 'CALL_BACK');

This works fine upto opening the document, but also immediately fires the code in Call_Back trigger not waiting for the 'Word Application' to be closed.

Is there a way to get around this???

Have a look at http://sheikyerbouti.developpez.com/webutil-docs/Webutil_store_edit_docs.htm search 'WEBUTIL_HOST' and study the example that is using the '/WAIT' option. Does this help?

Have you tried using the 'host' or 'client_host' command?

In the 'ole' world there is a 'start application' feature but I don't think it performs the way that you desire.

I have tried Client_Host and also Client_Ol2, they work fine.
But I want to use WebUtil_Host.NonBlocking_With_Callback, because when user finishes typing word document and closes word, 'CALL_BACK' trigger would fire.
This enables me to update database and forms. Otherwise user will have to click in the form somewhere to fire my code

I think you will have to raise this question on metalink or on Oracle's own Forms forum.

My gut feeling is that 'notepad' is a 'single' program application but the various MS Office products (Word, Excel, etc) are a 'multiple' program application. Are there parameters that you can use to 'force' Word to be seen as a 'single' program application?
