Dear all,

We want to be able to move column from one position to another at runtime giving user the ability to redesign his screen layout. Once the position is changed the cursor navigation also must be reset to take new sequence as per the new position of the columns. I know this is already available in grid panel. But we want to be able to do it in form panel as well. We have been using this in our oracle forms for a long time.

Kindly help.

Hi George,

You can move cells and change height/width of cells via APIs only for XY Layout. For instance, to move a cell horizontally you can use api_panel.setcellpostionx.

e.g. Sample move procedure.

procedure move is
    v_cell api_layout.t_cell;
    v_cell := api_panel.getcell('mainPanel', 'cell1');
    api_panel.setcellpositionx('mainPanel', 'cell1', v_cell.posx_nr + 10);
