Hi All,
What I am trying to do is create a frame on form so that its look likes all related or same group fields are together. For example “Internet option” windows in IE

    I'm not sure I understand you correctly.

    You can group similarly fields together in a Page Region (of most types, such as an HTML Region), this allows you to create and position the items within this region.

    Is this what you want to do?

    It would help if you could provide more information on what you want to do.

    You would normally use the <fieldset> element to group related items in an HTML form. If all the related items are in a single APEX region and you just want the kind of appearance you describe in the IE window, you can use a region template that wraps the form in a fieldset.

    However, if you're talking about grouping items within a region, note that APEX does not (yet?) allow developers fine granular control over the HTML elements used to lay out form items - the engine only generates form elements using a table-based model. There's a relevant discussion about using fieldset in this way in 629533. I've been looking at the Display As Text item workaround described here: there appear to be problems with it generating invalid HTML.
