During the Oracle Open World conference going on this week I was asked by one of the attendees to one of my sessions for a little guidance on the following challenge in ADF:
“We currently have an Oracle Forms application that we are rebuilding in ADF 11g. One of the features in this Forms application, is that whenever a field can contain a really large block of text, it will automatically be shown in a popup when the user clicks on or otherwise enters the field. Inside the popup, the entire field and its contents can be shown. Could you show me how to do this in ADF 11g?”
And that is a type of question I quite like. It is tangible, it is something I can easily help out with and by doing so promote ADF a little. So here it goes.
In ADF 11g Release 2, the ADF Table component has a property called ‘ActiveRowKey’. According to documentation, this represents the row that is currently active on the client. In click-to-edit mode, the active row will be made editable and is brought into view (if not already visible). Upon initial display, the click-to-edit component defaults the active row to the first visible row. In this post I will show you how to use the activeRowKey programmatic (more…)
In one of my previous posts I showed how to use ADF popup components to display external content such as webpages like wikipedia in an inline frame. Based on this post a colleague of mine tried to display a PDF document. That didn’t work. In this post I explain how you can use a servlet to open a PDF document in the inline frame. I will not explain how to invoke popups. If you need to know how to do that, refer to the post mentioned earlier (more…)
Last week I was asked this question : “Can we print directly from within our ADF Application, without invoking the printer dialog ?” I wasn’t sure but after some investigation the answer was clear. Yes you can ! Here is how (more…)
In this blog I will share with you my experiences with the Oracle JDeveloper11g Handbook – A Guide to Oracle Fusion Web Development (McGraw-Hill, 2010) – written by Duncan Mills, Peter Koletzke and Avrom Roy-Faderman. It is the successor of their previous book, JDeveloper 10g for Forms & PL/SQL Developers. This is a book to learn the basics of ADF Fusion development and a valuable guide for reference. If youâ€™re a starter, than the hands-on part in this book is a good and practical exercise.
There are use cases in which you need to determine what the currently active taskflow is. This looks like simple, but in fact it is not ! Let’s rephrase that : Depending on the context, it can be a pretty confusing task. (more…)
