I was just looking at the voting results for ORDS
. In the ORDS category Dietmar Aust
is leading and in the category APEX it is Morten Braten
. So far so good. These men deserve the award for sure - they did a lot for the community and the most of us are using (or have used) their solutions. Think of Morten's PL/SQL Utility Library
or Dietmar's PDF Printing
The only thing I have (more...)
Don't forget to vote for the expert of your choice at https://community.oracle.com/community/database/awards
. There are a lot of good men there deserving your voice for their activities in the community and for their selfless engagement.
This small example
is showing hot to make sure at least one row in your tabular form has been selected prior to proceeding: https://apex.oracle.com/pls/apex/f?p=93000:806
This is definitely worth of mentioning. Go here
and download this plugin for Firefox or Chrome. You will like it. It switches the panes in the Page Designer so you can much easier access the properties of the selected elements. Congrats Filip
. This is a cool feature. Thanks.
Expert Oracle Application Express 2nd Edition seems to be available at Apress
. Buy this book and support the charity project in memory of Carl Backstrom
and Scott Spadafore
(previous members of the APEX Team). Please note that all
funds will be donated to the families of these two great men.
is a new blog on APEX. I expect a lots of good stuff there in the future. The last example describes how to modify the Page Designer and move the panes, adjust the layout and simplify the development of an application since accessing element attributes is much easier that way. I think this is worth of looking at and maybe the APEX team considers this as an improvement for the future release.
is showing how to open a Modal Page from any element in your application. It is easy to get it working using some standards like a button or a link in a report. However, it is not 100% clear how to get it working with some other elements which don't have the redirect functionality built in (item, region title, custom links, etc.). This example is also showing how to get the success (more...)
Oracle Application Express 5.0 wurde am 15.04.2015 freigegeben und ist als Download verfügbar.
Wir haben jetzt alle über zwei Jahre auf das neue Release gewartet ... und das Warten hat sich mehr als gelohnt ... die neuen Möglichkeiten werden Sie umhauen!
Wir haben die neuen Möglichkeiten genau unter die Lupe genommen und sind selbst total begeistert, weil sie das tägliche Arbeiten extrem vereinfachen. Wir haben schon einige Anwendungen in APEX 5.0 neu programmiert (more...)
This is a quick and dirty solution
but it works. It shows hot to update a select list of values on demand without a lot of coding.
shows a couple of interesting techniques:
- 1. How to create and use an AJAX Callback process instead of an Application Process on Demand,
- 2. how to create a dynamic page item,
- 3. how to modify the item display settings and reference Font Awsome icon set and finaly,
This question is based on a recent forum posting where this question was asked.
Am 26.06.2015 17.00 treffen wir uns in Frankfurt a. M. bei einem weiteren APEX Meetup. Danke an Sabine Heimsath
und Moritz Klein
für die Organisation. Ich zeige dort, wie man lokal eine XE Datenbank zusammen mit ORDS und Glassfish konfigurieren kann. Danach kann sehr leicht jede beliebige Version von APEX nachinstalliert werden. Der Vorteil ist, ich kann alle Features einsetzen (RESTful Services, XLS Upload) und der Austausch vo Images bzw. Konfiguration für (more...)
blog posting I was showing how to get the Firefox Browser to work with tabs in APEX 5.0. It looks like APEX 5.0 was "optimized" to work in Google Chrome and the other browsers like IE and Firefox were not fully considered. I was able to make it working using the settings I described in the first post. However, the old style popup windows would also open in a new tab. (more...)
This may sound like a joke but I think there must be something wrong here. This page APEX-Plugin.com
is supposed to provide all the plugins out there. The only thing is that you need to log in before you download and that's O.K. However, I forgot my password and wanted to change it. The process is quite simple:
- I click on forgot my password link.
- Enter my email address.
- After that I receive (more...)
This old example
shows how to add rows to the top of the tabular form. Unfortunately this doesn't work with the new Universal Theme. In order to make it working some small changes are required. See this example
on how to do it using the new Universal Theme.
startet in knapp drei Wochen. Es ist zeit sich anzumelden
. Wir (Dietmar und Denes) haben Tobias Arnhold
eingeladen und er erzählt über das Thema Migration auf APEX 5.0. Tobias ist einer der wenigen Betatester von APEX 5.0 in Deutschland gewesen und hat die wertvolle Erfahrungen damit gemacht, die er mit uns teilen wird.
Unsere Themen zu APEX 5.0 sind zahlreich und vielfälltig. Wir decken fast alles wissenswertes ab:

The APEX team came up with a temporary fix for this issue. Please visit this forum posting
for all the updates on the issue. Basically, you need to run a small function on page load. The solution is also described there.
By the way this is one of the three bugs I have discovered so far.
The problem I described here
is strange. In my case and I tested it on several laptops with many browsers and multiple installations, appears to be a Universal Theme related bug and occurs in some specific constellation - in my case on Windows 8.1 running FireFox or Google Chrome (IE11 works as expected). I noticed this problem while working on the Tabular Form chapter for the new Expert APEX book. The first thought I (more...)
Great idea to organize the Oracle APEX YouTube Channel
. David Peake has started a Video Series about the new Page Designer in APEX 5.0. You should have a look.
, you will need two lines of code.
I am posting this just because I am getting questions related to this or similar issues all the time. In this example
you can see how you can replace images in your page using Dynamic Actions. There are at least two good ways to do that: 1. Rendering images in a report. Refreshing a report is a predefined event in a Dynamic Action and doesn't require coding.
or 2. Using jQuery to do that.
