Dear all,

Is there a functionality like oracle form GO_BLOCK in formspider? When the focus is changed from one datasource to another and back by clicking on the tabbedPanel tabs, I need to re-focus my cursor to the exact item in the same row where the cursor was focused before leaving the datasource.

Kindly suggest a solution with an example script.

Hi George,

You can use api_component.requestFocus API to focus the cursor to a component. The component to be focused can be either inside or outside of a grid. If it's inside of a grid, the focus moves to the exact component existing in the current row of the datasource. For each screen, you will need to keep the name of the last focused component in order to re-focus it when the related screen is displayed later.

Hope this helps,
