Merry Christmas everybody

 

For the occasion, I have just developed a little change around the Scrolling Panel by adding some methods.

 

  • SET_SCROLL_PANEL_ESCAPE to allow the end-user to exit the panel box by pressing the Escape key
  • SET_SCROLL_PANEL_FRAME to display the scrolling box in a separate frame the user can move and resize.
  • SET_SCROLL_VERTICAL_TOOLBAR to add a vertical scrollbar to non-scrolling pages (*)

 

(*) I have though that the Scrolling Panel, that was originally built to display plain texts or HTML contents in a small room, could also be used to display a help system. In this case, the scrolling behaviour is not necessary, reason why you can avoid it by setting the delay value to zero (0).

 

Set_Custom_Property( 'LAF_BLOCK.LAF_BEAN', 1

   , 'SET_SCROLL_PANEL', '0,0,10,10,600,150,http://...' ) ;

 

The vertical scrollbar permit to scroll the fixed content, and the Escape key to exit the box.

 

In addition, you can also display HTML pages stored in the Application Server, in one of the virtual/physical directories defined in the /forms/server/forms.conf file.
In this case, just precede the HTML page name with the virtual directory name:

 

Set_Custom_Property( 'LAF_BLOCK.LAF_BEAN', 1
   , 'SET_SCROLL_PANEL', '0,0,10,10,600,150,/forms/html/page.html' ) ;

 

Because of the smallness of the update, I have left the version number unchanged (1.6.4).

Just download again the LAF_164.zip from the site

 

Have fun !

 

Francois

Sometimes, when you add Java Beans/PJCs to your Oracle Forms  application, you get Java memory error message, because your Java Bean needs big memory size, or just don't make some clean up.

If you want to give more memory to the JVM, modify your /forms/server/xxbasexxx.htm file like the following:

 

Example of modified basejpi.htm:

 

...

<OBJECT classid="%jpi_classid%"

<PARAM NAME="java_arguments" value="-Xms32m -Xmx128m">

...

<EMBED SRC="" PLUGINSPAGE="%jpi_download_page%"

java_arguments="-Xms32m -Xmx128m"

...

 

 

The -Xmx argument defines the max memory size that the heap can reach for the JVM. You must know your program well and see how it performs under load and set this parameter accordingly. A low value can cause OutOfMemoryExceptions or a very poor performance if your program's heap memory is reaching the maximum heap size.

 

 The -Xms argument sets the initial heap memory size for the JVM. This means that when you start your program the JVM will allocate this amount of memory instantly. This is useful if your program will consume a large amount of heap memory right from the start. This avoids the JVM to be constantly increasing the heap and can gain some performance there.

 

So tune these 2 parameters to fit your needs.

I have delivered a new special version of the Forms JTable Java Bean.

It is a special version, because it requires the Sun plug-in 1.6.

 

Here are the new features:

  • Totalization line at the table's bottom
  • You can change the Header height
  • Check boxes support
  • Background table color
  • Maximum column width for all columns
  • Table Filterering

 

http://sheikyerbouti.developpez.com/JTable/files/JTable16.jpg

 

So these new features apply to and only to the JRE 16 version (fjtable16.jar), it does not concern the standard version (JInitiator).

I have just added a few features to the LAF project.

The first one allows to display a message
anywhere on the window, so, close to a specific item if you want.
The message can be displayed in a colored frame, and it can also blink. The X and Y coordinate support special keywords to center the message on the window.

 

I have also added a method that permits to display a Scrolling Panel during a given time.

 

Because the update is minor, I decided not to change the version number, so that it remains 1.6.2.

All you have to do, is to download again the LAF_162.zip from the site  ;-)

 

Here is a short demo of the new features - Enjoy !

I have just updated one of the most popular Java Bean stored on the forms.pjc.bean' site.


The "Keep the image initial quality" can, now, raise events to Forms when the image is Clicked or double-clicked.
