I have a table name SYSTEM_PATHS. All the physical paths like "where the runtime forms are located" or "where the runtime reports are located" are stored in its rows e.g (C:\HRMS\FORMS\)
now i have stored the path of Icon files(.ico) in it. The runtime forms can pick the path of icons for their buttons from this table. And then access the icon from that picked path. I am using forms 6i. Normally I put the path of icon files into the property pellet of push button like (C:\HRMS\ICON\). But now in here I dont have a path but its in a table's column. How to select path of a push button icon file from a table using forms 6i?
Is it dependent on the instance you connect? Then you can call it in a When-New-Form-Instance trigger.
Can the icon change depending on query results? Then you might choose a block level Post-Query / When-Item-Changed.
