Hello Folks

I am having trouble with Forms Developer 9i, Debug_Message facility. I know how it works in Forms 6i and according to the documentation it should work in the same way in 9i. I have set the Debug checkbox in the Preferences -> Runtime tab in order to trace the execution order of triggers attached to the Form.

When I run any form from Forms developer all I get is an alert with a Red Bell icon on it and text saying "Please Acknowledge message" after a trigger fires. According to the Forms Developer help files I am supposed to get a message stating which trigger was about to fire. No message appears in the status bar either which is not the case when a runtime error occurs.

If anyone has any suggestions on why this is happening please could you respond. After googling and RTFM I've not come across anyone with a similar problem. My guess it is probably a configuration issue.

Thanks

Mike

A long shot and I didn't check but have you fiddled with the message level?

What is debugging Messages?
Answer:
Quote:

Debug messages can be shown from menu Tools-->Preferences-->runtime from where check on debug messages.

When You check on debug message. The form will show you message box with message "Please acknowledge message". This message will show every time when a knew trigger will fire. This will narrow the scope to find out the error.

For example

you have form on which you have triggers like
when-new-form-instance on form level
when-new-block-instance on block level
when-new-record-instance on block level
when-new-item-instance on item level

as you run form you can find out the error in this way.
first you receive debug message on when-new-form-instance.
you can see is the work ok it means there is no problem in this trigger.

then you receive debug message on when-new-block-instance.
you can see is the work ok it means there is no problem in this trigger.

then you receive debug message on when-new-record-instance.
trigger. At this trigger if you see that result as not as you want. It means that problem is in this trigger. Know you have to modify only this trigger.

So you debug the trigger that create problem for you. In this sense you narrow the scope of triger to find out the exect problm creating trigger.

If you want to know further debugging process you can ask freely. thanks

Thanks for your replies.

Maaher,I've tried altering the message level but this has no effect.

Sweetkhaliq,the Trigger name information doesn't appear in the status bar.

Thanks for your help.

I've managed to sort the problem. It was a bug the with the version of Forms I was using (version 9.0.4.0.19).

I downloaded a patch from the Oracle Metalink site (patch for bug 3974385, forms version 9.0.4.1). I only replaced the ifw90.dll from the patch to get my form Debug Message working correctly.

Regards

Mick
