Hi, I have a problem with a form I have created. Typically in Oracle apps, I press the F11 key to begin a search. But with my forms I have to enter the F6 key before pressing F11 to enable a search. Can't say I'm too happy with that. Is there a way to override the default behaviour.

Also, I want to be able to change the title of the frame holding the form. Right now it's set to XXPROD_FORM which is the same name as my fmx (compiled form) file. I want to change the frame title to something like "Product Details". How do I go about this?

One more thing, I want to have a scrollbar as well. When creating the layout I was asked if I want to make the scrollbar visible and I selected yes. However, I haven't seen the scrollbar on the layout editor. Is there a way to insert a scrollbar on the canvas?

Thanks

What version of Forms are you using?

What does F6 and F11 do on your implementation?

Seach this forum for 'set_window_property forms_mdi_window'.

Have you specified the canvas on which the scrollbar is to be displayed?

Usually we use
F6 for Clear Record
F11 for Enter Query
in Oracle Applications

If you have to press 'Clear Record' before entering 'query mode' then the Form has populated a field. I assume that you are getting message similar to 'delete or save record?' - is this correct?

I expect that the field that you have populated is not displayed to the user. I suggest doing the population of this field or fields in the pre-insert trigger instead of the when-create-record trigger.
