Set Focus on Added Row Tabular

This sounds quite simple:

"I would like to set focus on the new added row in my tabular form."

In the following example, you can se how to acomplish that.

Cascading Shuttle – Keep Selected Values

There are probably a several good ways to solve the following problem:

    1. you have a simple select list which cascades a shuttle element
    2. you select something and the shuttle is populated
    3. after that, you pick a value in the shuttle and move it to the rigt side
    4. then you change the select list again
    5. the values you selected in your shuttle are now lost


This example shows how this can (more...)

jQuery – loop through a Tabular Form

This question is one of the frequently asked questions - "How do I loop through a tabular form using a dynamic action?". This example shows how to loop through a tabular form and set the values for each row to what ever you want. Using apex_application.g_fxx array is not an option for onload processes or dynamic actions. It can only be used in an on submit process. Using jQuery in a simple loop (more...)

OTN APEX Forum again

The OTN Forum is not available (again). This usefull but constantly changing forum now gives me the following message:



I am not sure why they are using jive for that. Maybe APEX would be a better solution.

OTN APEX Forum Link

Oracle again changed the layout of the forum. For me, the old link didn't work any more. In case you have problems finding it, here is the new link:

https://community.oracle.com/community/database/developer-tools/application_express

If you go to the forum and search for example for "APEX" or "Application Exp", you will see no results. Typing in "Application Ex" will find "Application Express".



Each of the found links will have a funny description saying:

"An error occurred processing (more...)

APEX 5.0 – Rejoin Session

This great feature is finaly there. I remember asking for a solution back in 2007. I needed to send emails with application links to my users. If they would receive an email they would click on the link and were supposed to land on a particular page. The problem was that they would already have an open session and they expected the link to go straight to the page without asking for a new login. (more...)

OGh APEX Conference

Last week I was presenting at OGh (ORACLE GEBRUIKERSCLUB HOLLAND) APEX World. My topic was "APEX 4.2 Application Deployment and Application Management". I can only recommend this conference to all the APEX users in Europe. This is definitely the biggest APEX conference on our continent. If you don't travel to ODTUG then this is something you shouldn't miss. They have an international track where you can listen to the well known APEX developers and (more...)

APEX 5.0 Page Designer Videos

There is a nice series of videos regarding APEX 5.0 Page Designer on YouTube. You can watch it here. David Peake is showing how the new Page Designer works. It is worth of having look at it and much easier that finding it out yourself. Enjoy.

APEX Plugin Page

I just noticed that http://www.apex-plugin.com is programmed using php and jomla. Shouldn't it use Oracle APEX?

APEX IR Query Plugin

I already posted about the function for getting the IR query here:

http://www.deneskubicek.blogspot.de/2013/05/getting-interactive-report-query.html

Now, I decided to create a dynamic action plugin based on that function. The plugin has been submitted to the plugin directory at http://www.apex-plugin.com/ and should appear there soon. If you want to see how it works and download the code, you can do it here as well: https://apex.oracle.com/pls/apex/f?p=43045:1

Oracle APEX Cookbook : Second Edition

I was asked to review this book and write a couple of words about it. Of course I didn't go through all the 444 pages of the book because I don't have enough time. From what I could read and review, I can say that this book contains a lot of well explained examples for almost all APEX features. So, if you are new to APEX and want to speed up your learning process then (more...)

APEX 5.0 – New Features – Sub Region – Region Position

One of the first things I checked in APEX 5.0 EA was the region positioning of the sub regions. I was positively surprised to see that I can now position the regions next to each other as well. In earlier versions the only option was underneath. Having this possibility it will be much easier to create complex forms where you need to take care of positioning multiple items in more than one column. At (more...)

APEX 5.0 – early adopter is cool

This is definitely the best APEX version ever. I just tested it and it took less than a couple of minutes to get used to it. You know how hard it is to accept major changes. This time it was easy. The changes made in the builder will for sure increase the productivity although this was never a weakness of APEX. There are of course some things missing (or I just couldn't find them) like (more...)

Barcode Report

This example seems still to be interesting to some people in the community. The number of requests and questions I am getting regarding it forced me to update it. Now the rendering is using an application process instead of a public procedure - using public procedures in XE is somewhat tricky.

Classic Report – Preserve Pagination after PPR

In this example you can see how easy it is to preserve report pagination after PPR. With a little jquery coding you can attach a function to the pagination request and this way "document" where the pagination goes. After a report refresh you may read those values and paginate back (more...)

SQL Developer 4.0

I personally didn't like SQL Developer because of it's clumsy java interface and found TOAD much better. Now, the version 4.0 looks more professional, cleaner and nicer. The new look and feel has been improved a lot. You can now reorder editor tabs without any side effects. SQL Developer (more...)

APEX Listener and Excel Upload

If you are using APEX Listener version 2.0, you can download a sample application here. In this application I am showing how to:

1. create an excel upload page
2. manage multiple excel sheets after upload

This new APEX Listener feature is great and I hope they will extend (more...)

APEX and Session State Protection

Prior to configuring Session State Protection in your applications you need to be aware of one important thing. Setting it up and configuring the settings will change the settings for all the items in your application - even if the items were protected before that change using some other protection (more...)
