Hi,
i designed one custom form with the search button, it has some text fields. When entering some values in text field and hitting the "ENTER" key it goes to the next field in the form.

By oracle standard when hitting the "ENTER" key it submit the form.

How to submit the form when hitting the "ENTER KEY" in my customized form?

Please help me to fix the issue

Thanks,
amjadkhan

As far as I can tell, <Enter>'s default action is exactly that: moving to the next item (just like <Tab> does).

What do you call "submitting the form"? Calling another form? If so, try CALL_FORM, OPEN_FORM or NEW_FORM built-ins.
If it means "execute a query", use EXECUTE-QUERY built-in.
If it is something else, what is it, then?

i have one search button in my customized form. When clicking the "SEARCH" button, i call the GO_BLOCK('SEARCH_RESULT_BLOCK') statement in WHEN-BUTTON-PRESSED trigger.

like this when hitting the "ENTER KEY" it will directly go to the "SEARCH_RESULT_BLOCK"

Thanks,

Just the same! Code you used in the WHEN-BUTTON-PRESSED trigger can be used in the KEY-NEXT-ITEM trigger as well. In other words, you don't want to cycle through all items in this record, you don't even want to go to next record - you want to go somewhere else! So - use GO_BLOCK.

However, perhaps you'd rather want to modify block "Navigation Style" property and change it to "Change Data Block"; this property tells forms how to process "next" or "previous" item when focus is on first or last navigable item. In your case, as I've understood, it is the "last" navigable item and you should modify "previous/next Navigation Data Block" properties too.

You're not the first with this question. I refer to Metalink note 209671.1 where it is explained in detail. I cannot disclose Metalink material but I can tell you that have to change the FMRWEB.RES for the Enter key.

And lucky for you, it is in the documentation.

keyword: FMRWEB.RES, enter key, key-enter trigger
