Hello,

I am using oracle forms 6i.
I have two blocks :
blk 1 has user name text box. We put the name, and then go to blk 2, press F8 ( to execute query), which populates the data for that user in blk 2.

We added another text box in blk 1, which displays the total count of the records for that user. I wrote a function for that, and calling it in the key-exeqry of blk2, after the execute_query;

But even before doing anything in the form, when the form is opened, the newly added count textbox in blk 1, is all highlighted in black. Since i cannot see anything here, i am displaying count in the message box. But this counts need to be in the textbox in blk 1.

Thanks,
rk

Looks like visual attributes are set to paint it black. Did you check them?

Or, alternatively, delete the "count textbox" and copy/paste the "user name textbox" - then modify its properties (rename it, move it to another position, ...) and see what happens.

Thanks for the reply. All the textboxes have the same settings. I tried copying one of the working textbox, and rename it as a count_textbox. Still same problem.

Thanks again,
RK

Black magic at work.

You didn't mention operating system you use. Which one is it? Is/was Forms 6i certified with it? It certainly isn't supported any more. The last one was Windows XP (if you're on Windows, of course), and every step further from it (i.e. a new OS version) makes your Forms 6i application less likely to work as expected.
