What is ZOOM Function in oracle applications R12?
Can you please explain about this.
I suppose you mean the "Zoom" function in View -> Zoom.
I've never used it (up to now) but from what I have seen in the documentations (last time I wanted to use it ... but finally didn't really need it), it is used to call custom defined "zooms". This is event handled in CUSTOM.pll (just like WHEN-NEW-BLOCK-INSTANCE, for example) and is used to call a new form from the calling module.
Extract from CUSTOM.pll:
/* Sample code:
form_name varchar2(30) := name_in('system.current_form');
block_name varchar2(30) := name_in('system.cursor_block');
-- Zoom event opens a new session of a form and
-- passes parameter values to the new session. The parameters
-- already exist in the form being opened.
if (event_name = 'ZOOM') then
if (form_name = 'DEMXXEOR' and block_name = 'ORDERS') then
param_to_pass1 := name_in('ORDERS.order_id');
param_to_pass2 := name_in('ORDERS.customer_name');
-- all the extra single and double quotes account for
-- any spaces that might be in the passed values
I don't want to use CUSTOM.pll. I need it through Form Personalization.
I don't know View--> Zoom is same as ZOOM icon after Clear ICON on menu bar.
I want to enable ZOOM icon.
Zoom in Oralce Forms can be done via Personalization - It is the ability to access one form from another form, or to call another instance of the same form.
