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...)
About a month ago, I left my position at Accenture Enkitec Group. I had a couple of ideas as to what I wanted to do next, but nothing was 100% solid. After considering a couple of different options, I'm happy to announce that together with Doug Gault & Tim St. Hilaire, we're re-launching Sumner Technologies.
Much like last time, the focus will be on Oracle APEX; but we’re going to refine that focus a little (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...)
When you migrate to APEX 5.0 and the Universal Theme you might see that some plugins are not behaving correctly anymore. In this post I'll discuss the Enkitec Modal LOV
When I ran the plugin in my APEX 5.0 app with the Universal Theme it looked like this:
There's too much space in the search bar and the close button is not showing up with an icon.
Here're the steps I did (more...)
At the upcoming ODTUG Kscope15
conference, on Monday night, June 22, there will be the Monday Community Events
. The Community Event for the Oracle Application Express track at Kscope15 is the ever-popular Open Mic Night. Without a doubt, this is one of my favorite events at the Kscope conference.
An Oracle employee sent me an email today, inquiring about the Open Mic Night. This employee, who is a user of Oracle Application Express at Oracle, (more...)
If you haven’t heard: APEX 5.0 is out !
And I finally got some time on my hands to do my usual “diff” between the new and previous version to point out all API and View changes.
To me this is a very valuable exercise to absorb all new information and to get to know all new Features of a version. Because everything I find in View and API changes, must also be reflected in (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.
On Monday Bob Rhubart did a video call with me in his series of 2MTT
(2 Minute Tech Tip) on YouTube. You find my 2MMT here
I talked about using JSON and APEX and gave two examples were we use it.
In previous blog posts I gave more details on those techniques. Here's a quick overview:
comes with a new calendar region, which is way nicer than the previous calendar in APEX. It has more features, looks better and is also responsive. Behind the scenes you'll see the calendar region is based on Full Calendar
In Belgium we use Monday as first day of the week, whereas in the US they seem to use Sunday as start of the week in the calendar overview. I've been integrating Full (more...)
After installing Oracle APEX 5.0, do you get the alert “There are issues with the configuration of the Static Files in your environment. Please consult the “Configuring Static File Support” section in the Application Express Installation Guide.” when you try … Continue reading

Ps.: Ich selbst werde auch eine Session zu APEX 5 Migrationen halten.
Oracle APEX 5.0 ships with FontAwesome version 4.2.0 which will automatically be loaded if your application is using the Universal Theme. This makes it super easy to add nice looking icons to your buttons, lists and regions. But how can you integrate the most … Continue reading

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.
Do you want to use the new Universal Theme for your existing applications? Then you should definitely have a look at the Universal Theme Migration Guide my colleagues Shakeeb Rahman and Tim Chambers have just published.
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...)
For applications which are using Universal Theme you don’t have to modify the Page Template anymore if you want to replace the default favicon with a custom one. Instead follow these steps: Go to Shared Components Click Application Definition Attributes (in Application … Continue reading
