Hi all,

How can make formspider to function exactly like Enter-Query / Execute-Query as in Oracle Forms?

Hi George,

If your panel contains a grid, you can use "enableColumnFilter" attribute of the grid component. This attribute allows the user to filter grid columns data, you can check this tutorial for more details.

Best Regards,

Hi Ibrahim,

This is the only grid I use through out my application. However, this lacks flexibility for filtering. I directly interact with end users and I am aware of their needs. They like to query 1. multiple columns 2. apply free format query. (Use any condition like >,<,= LIKE with % etc.) If both the above can be availed it will make user's daily work easier and they will be happy to use and recommend the product to others. This is all the more important if you want to introduce your product to companies where they are already using and familiar with Oracle forms product.

Hi George,

Currently, Formspider does not have a feature similar to enter-query mode. You can however, develop a search screen for each Grid and show this search screen in a way that it visually similar to enter-query mode.

I understand that this is not as nice as having a built-in enter-query.

Kind Regards, Yalim

Hi Yalim,

As suggested by you these are workarounds we may add in our development. But in the long run, I feel, that formspider should try to incorporate it, if possible.

Thank you again.

Hi Yalim,

I have already made this in my system and need to be perfected. There are some bugs (requestfocus) and facilities like grid select color change etc in formspider to be rectified before I can use it in production.
