I have IAS Forms 188.8.131.52. When I click on text filed in form with mouse, the text inside the field is not highlighted (selected), but the cursor is set when I clicked.
When I tried the same thing on the same Form on IAS 10g and Forms 6i, the text was always highlighted so I can directly overwrite the text.
Is there any solution (setting) also for Forms 11gR1 (184.108.40.206).
The behavior has changed several times between versions. If there is a situation where the text is not selected, but you would prefer that it was, simply create a WHEN-NEW-ITEM-INSTANCE trigger and add the built-in SELECT_ALL*. This will cause the text to be selected upon entry.
