After the APEX Developer Addon broke in Chrome 27, I had to change the underlying architecture and do a rewrite of the Addon basis.
Some nice guys helped me Beta-Test that over the last week. Now it should be good to go.
Now here is the tricky part: if (more...)
Today the OTN Forums
where updated. The site is still in read-only mode as they are fixing some issues.
I need to get used to this new look and feel, but it looks more up-to-date design wise.

A few changes are planned for Oracle Application Express
Beginning with Oracle Application Express 5.0, the minimum database version for Oracle Application Express will be Oracle Database 18.104.22.168. Extended Support for Oracle Database 22.214.171.124 ends in August 2015, per the Lifetime (more...)
You can extend this simple example
by adding a counter to it and close it after the specified number of seconds:
var my_counter = 5;
var success_message = $('#P299_MESSAGE').val() + '<br/>' +
'This message will close in ' +
'<span id="my_sec">' + my_counter + '</span>' + ' seconds.';
This is a quick one, if you have followed my other mobile blog posts.
When creating the mobile guide to the AOUG Conference 2013 (taking place June 17 and 18 in a historic Brewery in Vienna, Austria), i found myself creating a new theme using the themeroller, but still (more...)
With Chrome Version 27 a security bug in the browser was fixed which caused the APEX Developer Addon to break.
Thanks to all sending me a reply about that, i’m currently working on a fix and hope to be able to provide that soon.
In the meantime please stay calm (more...)
Most often, patch sets for Oracle Application Express are used to correct defects (i.e., fix bugs) identified in a release. It's rare for features to be introduced or behavior to change. But in the case of Oracle Application Express 4.2.2 and later, there is a change in (more...)
Thanks to a tweet of Scott Wesley (@swesley_perth), I stumbled upon this blog post
by Tony Andrews. In that blog Tony lists a few examples of APEX Conditions and concludes that the declarative approach must be
the best way of doing it. Although his assumptions and conclusions makes a lot (more...)
One of my current customers would like to use their LDAP (Microsoft Active Directory) server for authentication and authorization of APEX applications. Of course we tried to set up a standard LDAP Authenication that's available within APEX. But we couldn't get that to work. Maybe it has to do with (more...)
This simple example
is showing how to create a success message using dynamic actions. One thing needs to be mentioned though. The last one of the three actions depends on your current template:
var success_message = $('#P299_MESSAGE').val();
$('.t10messages').append('<div class="t10messages"><div class="t10success"

When developing mobile applications with APEX 4.2 you’ll find the developer toolbar on the page bottom is missing.
This can be a little bit annoying when investigating misbehaving applications. Oracle recognizes this as Issue 14749955 with the workaround to access the toolbar functions through a desktop page…
Of course (more...)
This simple example
is showing how to use a simple checkbox column in a tabular form to enable/disable or check/uncheck another checkbox column.
Today my client decided to remove the email functionality from all interactive reports in their APEX application.
I could step through all the pages of my application and check whether there are any interactive reports used. This very manual approach can take some time and I can make mistakes by (more...)
Yesterday an interesting question regarding tabular forms, collections and instant updates was asked in the Oracle APEX Forum
. This example
in my Demo Application
shows how you can create a tabular form based on a collection and update this collection instantly. The whole example consists of three main parts:
I know this is nothing new but I had a hard time to find this out. In one of my projects I needed the exact query of an interactive report in order to save the data into a PL/SQL collection. I tried using the provided IR Application Views but those (more...)
I’ve had a problem with Adobe Fireworks CS5 ever since upgrading to a Retina Display MacBook. The problem is that the eye-dropper colour picker tool just doesn’t work any more. At all. Very frustrating.
I came across a very simple workaround today which can be found here:
