What is "remaining in view mode"?

What is the problem? The fact that master block is in that mode, or the fact that detail block isn't? What is the desired behaviour? How does the WHEN-NEW-FORM-INSTANCE trigger look like?

dear i just want view mode on when-new-form--instance .
for that i write :GLOBAL.MODE := 'VIEW'; and then execute query.
It works in 6i but not in 10g.

:global.mode = 'view' will only initialize a global variable whose name is "mode"; I don't have Forms 6i to test it, but I doubt that this is the only thing one has to do in order to put a form into a query mode. There *must* be something else (at least, that's what I think about it).

In forms 10g, investigate use of the 'QUERY_ONLY' parameter while calling the form such as
http://your_server/forms90/f90servlet?form=your_form.fmx&query_only=YES

You can not.

But, wasn't that your intention?

i just want view mode

I still have no idea what the problem, actually, is. You've posted a several messages, and none of them accurately describes the situation.

First you want the "view" mode, now you don't. Which one is it?

What kind of functionality is this?

If you want your users to view data, OK. If you want them to modify (or insert new) records, fine.

But these two are opposite; where's the purpose in restricting something, but still allowing it?

What you might do is to use SET_ITEM_PROPERTY and disable all items; pressing the "Edit" or "Insert" button (if that's what you have), use the same built-in to enable items and allow updating and/or inserting.
