I receive sometimes requests by users that are interested by some features of the Forms Look and Feel tool, but don't want to install the whole stuff : .pll,
.css, database packages, ...
Even though you need the PLL and the CSS to easilly paint the canvases and the blocks, this is not absolutly required. The PLL itself uses the methods stored in the laf_xxx JAR file.
100% of the Java Bean's methods can be used without the PLL.
So, if you need some features of the LAF like Pushbuttons, fun buttons, carousel, Text Items with HTML or CLOB content, ... just put the laf_xxx jar in your /forms/java folder, add it to your archive tags, and that's all. Use the methods directly via the Set_Custom_Property() Forms built-in.
