This version comes with more methods concerning the (LAF_XP_TextArea) BIG Text features.
For those who don't know, the BIG Text feature allows the user to load/edit huge texts up to several megabytes, from the database as well as from a local machine text file.
This version comes with the table-block copy/paste from/to the clipboard feature. You can populate a table-block with the content
of the clipboard (Excel, Word,...) and also send to the clipboard with the content of a table-block.
One of the features of the Look and Feel Project, is the capability to add items at runtime, and more particularly Image items, via the IMG_NEW
method. As Google Charts are PNG images, it is easy to use a dynamic image to display them.
Only 3 instructions are required:
LC$Chart Varchar2(2000) := 'http://chart.apis.google.com/chart?cht=v&chs=200x100&chd=t:100,80,60,30,25,20,10';
-- add image to the canvas --
Set_Custom_Property('LAF_BLOCK.LAF_BEAN',1,'IMG_SET_BORDER','img,line' ) ;
-- populate image --
,'img,' || replace(LC$Chart,',','%2C'));
That's all !
I have added a new test_laf_gchart.fmb sample dialog in the current LAF_1772.zip if you want to play with.
For the LAf developers that want to have transparent with no border buttons, I see that some people try to use the FunButton PJC (oracle.forms.fd.FunButton), that is not designed to do it. The FunButton has been created to render buttons that have a non-rectangular shape.
If you want to have a nice iconic button with no border and transparent background, set the Forms Push Button Implementation Class to :
oracle.forms.fd.LAF_XP_Button, the use the following code:
