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:

 

Declare
  LC$Chart Varchar2(2000) := 'http://chart.apis.google.com/chart?cht=v&chs=200x100&chd=t:100,80,60,30,25,20,10';
Begin  
  -- add image to the canvas --
  Set_Custom_Property('LAF_BLOCK.LAF_BEAN',1,'IMG_NEW','img,10,80,450,230');
  Set_Custom_Property('LAF_BLOCK.LAF_BEAN',1,'IMG_SET_BORDER','img,line' ) ;
  -- populate image --
  Set_Custom_Property('LAF_BLOCK.LAF_BEAN',1,'IMG_READIMGFILE'
                     ,'img,' || replace(LC$Chart,',','%2C'));
End;

 

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.

Here is an example of how you can design a kind of "Web" menu with the LAF HTML Map feature

 

 

Each menu option is symbolized by an image part to render this modern look and feel.

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:

  -- Transparent iconic EXIT button --
 Set_Custom_Property( 'LAF_BLOCK.PB1',1, 'SET_IMAGE', '/target-32.gif');
 Set_Custom_Property( 'LAF_BLOCK.PB1',1, 'SET_BACKGROUND_COLOR', 'null');
 Set_Custom_Property( 'LAF_BLOCK.PB1',1, 'SET_BORDER', 'false');
