    Unanswered: forms 9i development question

    setup: Forms 9i on 9i, w2K. No YOYO for me (I hope).

    I have a dual purpose form. The form can be used to create/edit and it can be used to view only. My question is this: is there a way to easily change an editable form to view (queryable) only? I am ready to start coding the bucket load of set_item_property() calls to alter the items but I hope there is a different way. It would be nice to use a property class but they can not be set at runtime. Any ideas?

    Hi

    I think u try to set block property(insert_allowed=false,update_allowed=false ,delete_allowed=false) after user verification or new form instance level. it could be helpful to you.

    Thanks. I am already doing what you said but I was looking for a one step solution.

    Have you considered using CALL_QUERY to call the form in query-only mode?

    No I haven't. That is a good thing to remember. I am also needing to change the color of some fields so I do not think it is my total solution. Something to remember however.
