Hi,

I have an item(display item) on the canvas,in when new form instance trigger i am setting it to (visible,property_false).

But in a button when i change the property to (visible ,property_true).
It is not working and i cant see the item in forms 10g.
In form6i it is working fine but in forms 10g it is not working.

Even i tried setting the property ,enabled as property true.

So, why is it working fine in Forms6i but not in forms10g.
Any idea's appreciated...

Thanks,
Srinivas

Well, I've tried it now and it works fine. Default data block is based on Scott's DEPT table.
-- WHEN-NEW-FORM-INSTANCE trigger:

set_item_property('loc', visible, property_false);

Additional push button, having
-- WHEN-BUTTON-PRESSED trigger:

set_item_property('loc', visible, property_true);

The 'loc' item is invisible as the form starts, but appears when I press the button.

What did you do so that it doesn't work properly?

P.S. Note that making an item VISIBLE doesn't mean it is ENABLED!
