I am using oracle deveoper 2000 forms 6i.
i have got 2 question to ask...

1> How to make a field activated baed on the value of the other field?
e.g. I have 1 filed call 'charge'(to be activated) and another field emergency which has 2 values viz 'yes' and 'no'. If 'yes' is been selected the charge field should be activated.
so can u help me out? Plz...

2>How to load a static image into form? I dont want to retrive any image from the stored database. Just an image stored on to hard disk.

Well I'm asumming that your emergency field is actualy a list-item or pop-list. So try this:

In the When-List-Change Trigger you type the following:

IF :emergency = 'y' THEN
  set_item_property ('charge',ENABLED,property_true);
  set_item_property ('charge',ENABLED,property_false);

Now, concerning to the 2nd question, use the READ_IMAGE_FILE built-in to load an image into an Image-Item at run-time.

Check the form builder help this is all contained there.

Hope this helps.

I suggest using the 'set_item_INSTANCE_property'.
