We are running our application on Forms Developer suite Version 10g with Oracle 10G as the Application Server, the database is 10g version.
Sometime what happens is that the cursor which normally "blinks" inside an item, stops blinking and the form looks like it is hanging. The user find it hard to locate the cursor point. Most of the time the user has to be close the form and re-open it or, move to the next block and return the previous block. Is there is someway we can avoid this. We find that this is happening if the forms runtime session is left running for a long time. Any suggestion is welcome.
When you say left running for a long time does that mean the user is doing nothing or are they actively entering data? Is there any overlap with the time it takes the cursor to disappear and the screensaver timeout on the users computer? Does changing the mouse cursor style make any difference?
