Folder Functionality - Prompt not displaying [message #304744] Thu, 06 March 2008 08:14 Go to next message

I am trying to enable folder functionality in my custom form (master-detail) for Oracle applications (11.5.10). All the folder functionality is working as expected but for this small problem.

The custom folder is on the line block and the prompts do not appear when the form is opened (when-new-form-instance). They only show up after I click on any line level record.

Any ideas what I might be missing or what I need to do so as to display the folder prompts when the form opens.

Thanks a lot

Hi Prakash,

You have to enter a dummy field named in your prompt block. Have you done that ?

Check these

Create new block (PROMPT) which will contain prompts for the column displayed in upper block. This block should contain:
Items which will be prompt for above block columns (Item name should be same as Column name in above block). Prompt Items should be on Stacked canvas (PROJECT_STACK).

Create the below items under the PROMPT block:

Item Name: FOLDER_OPEN, Item Type: Button, Canvas: PROJECT_FOLDER
Item Name: FOLDER_DUMMY, Item Type: Text Item, Canvas: TOOLBAR
Item Name: FOLDER_TITLE, Item Type: Display Item, Canvas: PROJECT_FOLDER
Item Name: ORDER_BY1, Item Type: Button, Canvas: PROJECT_STACK
Item Name: ORDER_BY2, Item Type: Button, Canvas: PROJECT_STACK
Item Name: ORDER_BY3, Item Type: Button, Canvas: PROJECT_STACK

Form Level Triggers:
-- Remove the message and uncomment the line after it to activate the folder actions.
-- message (‘you must modify the FOLDER_ACTION trigger in your form!');

app_folder.define_folder_block('BLOCKNAME', -- Object Name
'BLOCKNAME', -- Folder Block
'PROMPT', -- Prompt Block
'PROJECT_STACK', -- Stacked Canvas
NULL); -- Disabled Functions
