How to soft-code the page number portion of an item name?

Hello Apexers,

In an Application Procedure, I'd like to reference some items that are local to the current page. Obviously, hard-coding like the following won't work unless it happens to be on Page 25.

:f105_blah := :p25_blah;

So how can I write this line of PL/SQL code so that the "25" is automatically set to the number of the current page?

Thanks so much,

P.S. I tried the following, but it didn't put anything in the App Item.

:f105_blah := to_char('p' || NV('APP_PAGE_ID') || '_blah');
