Forms help required

    I've worked with Oracle for years but up until now haven't had the opportunity to work with Forms.

    I need to get up and running with Forms asap so does anyone have a link to something that can describe the basics clearly. I have to make minor change to an existing form so that I can either show all rows or just those rows that contain the word - "warning". My initial idea is to use a couple of radio buttons to achieve this but my first attempts leave me unable to select either of the buttons. I then have the problem of working out how to work out what button is selected and then how to use that info to alter the where clause.

    I cannot access youtube at work which is frustrating as google suggests there are useful demos for me to watch.

    I am using Forms [32 Bit] Version (Production).

    Hi, [whats ur name]

    Don't get frustated, it's just the start .. way more to come :D

    See, u got two options:
    1. Search/Get docs and tutorials, start studying the basics and everything [which i believe will take 2-3 months to pull off]
    2. Straightly go onto the issues and start studying specific areas required to resolve the issue. (Which is my personal recommendation coz u'll be multi-tasking and u'll end up learning the whole thing).

    And if i come to the issue u described ..
    Please upload the screenshots of the Object navigator, main block property palette and the current output [run-time]. Lets see then ...

    If I remember correctly...Oracle Forms comes w/ Cue Cards under the Help option. I found those quite useful.
