Re: current OS directory and path in forms5.0

The using FORMS50_PATH registry entry is much better than using full path name in CALL_FORM, I think.

But you can use Get_Application_Property(CURRENT_FORM) built-in for first form in your application to get the full path name of it.

Hope this helps. wrote:
