Oracle APEX Meetup in Stockholm 16.08.

In my summer holiday, this year in Stockholm (Sweden), I will make a stop and present two APEX topics in the "Stockholm Oracle Meetup group".

The topics will be:

Working with interactive SVG graphics in APEX 
Adding SVG graphics inside individual business applications is quite in common. Because those graphics can increase the usability and even more important it creates a completely new way to visualize data inside a browser app. In this presentation he (more...)

Interactive Report with a Font Awesome edit icon

Most of you know the default APEX edit icons you can choose from inside your Interactive Report.
Basically you use them to link to a detail page.

 1. The Icon should be a nice looking car symbol from the Font Awesome library.
 2. The column width should be as small as the icon and not relative to the (more...)
