I have a tabular form. The user has to enter many items; sometimes one, sometimes thirty. There is one field displaying in the report, i.e. 11111 22222 33333 ... By default one can enter an item using the ten-key number pad, hit TAB and jump to the Add Row button, hit ENTER and a new row is created. But the cursor has moved to somewhere else in the form. I'd like to set it so the Add Row button sets the cursor in the new row of the tabular form so that the user can quickly add multiple numbers without having to use the mouse to click in each new field. Thanks in advance...
Also, is there anyway to notify if the user enters a duplicate number?
Thanks, Jari! That sounds easy but I don't know how. Can you give me detail. I've looked at my edit page button and the dynamic action area in the page rendering area to see if I could start and it's unclear.
Ummmm. I may be out of luck. I'm reading the "New Features" of Apex 4.1 (YES, ONE) and see that one of those features is "a number of enhancements were added including the ability to define dynamic actions for buttons and also use dynamic actions to set multiple item values." I have been asking for months, maybe even a year for our network administrator to upgrade and I think the problem is he can't figure out how. I've asked for access to do it myself and I'm told,"it's very complicated." And meanwhile I'm stuck at Application Express 4.0.0.00.46.
Do you mean still create a dynamic action on the button? Not sure how/where to change jQuery selector but see in documentation it can be done on a dynamic action. The Add Row button is not seen as a choice for an Item in the Dynamic Action wizard. Sorry I don't know this stuff!
Ohhhh kayyy - I've been trying to use the name of the field I'm updating in the tabular form but I see I'm wrong. I tried jQuery selector input[name=ASSOC_ITEMNO] Guidance, please?
I'm trying things while we chat. And now I'm thinking that maybe f01 is the number of the field I'm displaying in the scheme of that table? I know I did something like that when I created (with the great help of you or Tony or one of you guys). I'm testing that idea.
Don't have firebug. I'll investigate to get it. Meanwhile I'll check the page source the long way.
okay - it's been a long time thing that we weren't 'allowed' to use firefox, but in this instance I think it will be fine. I need to (re)load firefox, then I'll load firebug, and then I'll check it out. But first, I have to take a lunch break California time. I don't remember where in the world you are, so I hope I don't miss you when I'm back. If I do, thanks for all your help today! You definitely put me on the right track. All the best, Alex
