I wan to change the WINDOW property's X and Y position to "0" to all my forms .
Is there anything in config file where we can change and it will reflect to all the forms in server ? Or there is only one way to change this and that is window property ?
There is not a generic environment setting you can change that would effect all forms.
You could write code in a When-Window-Activated trigger that sets the X/Y coordinates of activated window and then subclass this trigger into all of your forms. Unfortunately, this requires you to subclass this trigger into all of your forms. The positive side-affect is that once done - if you need to change the X/Y coordinates again you only have to change them in the original trigger and then recompile your forms for the change to propogate to all of your forms.
You can take use of JDAPI, by creating a java class that changes the window position.
Advantage of using JDAPI is the ability of changing all the Forms in a batch.
As a starting point you can follow these metalink notes:
How To Implement The Code From 'A JDAPI Programming Example' From Forms Online Help (Doc ID 428083.1)

i do recommend the following...
1. create a template from
2. create an object group to drag any trigger u want to apply on the whole application
3. create an object library & drag the object group to this library.
4.attach the object library to ur forms application.
5.drag the trigger and attach to each form as a subclass copy for changes to take effects in the whole application.
Note.any changes Will be made in the template from where u write the trigger then remove the old trigger from object group and re attach the modified one to object library after remove the old one.
