Your comment is unclear. What exactly are you asking for? Forms provides numerous ways in which the look-and-feel can be customized. If you don't like what is offered by Oracle Forms you could extend it using a third party option such as this one:
Hi Michael Ferrante,
I am working on Oracle (Oracle Forms/Reports 10G and Oracle10G) Product, it contains 2500 Oracle Forms Screens.
I feel my screens are not effective interns for Look and Feel, so trying to improve Look and Feel.
Found flowing two ways to improve Look and Feel by adding external CSS File.
1) http://fdtool.free.fr/LAF/doc/implementation.htm - provided by you.
2) http://docs.oracle.com/javafx/2/get_started/css.htm - provided by Google search.
My Question:- Please suggest me, Which is the best tool to improve My Existing Oracle Forms screens Look and Feel.
There are various ways to change the look of an application. Which option you choose will depend on how creative you want to be and your skill-set. As I mentioned Forms offers numerous ways in which you can enhance the look of an application. For example, you can change some of the appearance at runtime assuming you have not hard coded colors in your application. You can use the "colorScheme" applet parameter. For example, for testing purposes, add &colorScheme=<VALUE> to the end of the URL when you run your form. Valid values for colorScheme are:
So, an example might be: http://myServer:8888/forms/frmservlet?form=myForm&colorScheme=SWAN
The colorScheme parameter can be set in formsweb.cfg so it doesn't need to appear on the URL. Also, you can customize the background image in the applet container, the logo on the upper right (default is Oracle), and splashscreen. In the form, you can add background images to the canvas, hardcode colors, add images to buttons and image items.
For more complex enhancements, you can use Francois's Look-And-Feel project or create your own java beans/pjc to enhance existing Forms objects. The Forms Rollover bean example, is one of an endless number of changes you could add.
