Anyone has any clue about this? Any hint for me to do further research are very helpful too.
Please update if you know that there is no oracle configuration for this so I won't waste time.
Interesting topic.1 person found this helpful
But sorry, no help from my side.
I can't rememeber having heard or read something to control this behaviour. I assume it's in the applet or even, deeper (jre).
Thanks for your reply.
This just proved what I found so far. No auto-select is just the default behavior on mouse click and there is no way to globally change this.
Still, I will monitor this few more days. New updates are welcome.
did u try Keep Cursor Position property?
Yes. I did.
As my understanding, "keep cursor position" is for not-auto-select the item, but not for my purpose.
Thanks for your posting anyway.
We are also facing the same issue. We upgrade from 10gR2 to 11gR2, in 10g when we click on a text item which is having some value then the entire text is selected but in 11g the entire text is not selected and the Cursor goes to the position of the text where we clicked.
If you have solved this issue please post it. We appreciate the others help on this.
Thanks in advance,
As I recall, whether the text is "selected" is controlled by the JRE. A possible work-around for this would be to create a generic Module/Form level When-New-Item-Instance (WNII) trigger that would test the current item to see if it is of a type that you can select all of the text and then call the SELECT_ALL built-in. I believe the SELECT_ALL will work with the following three items, but you will have to play around with this to see if there are more (DISPLAY ITEM, TEXT ITEM, and LIST).
Your code would look something like this:
-- Sample Form/Module level WNII trigger -- Code is untested - so you may have to modify it to make it work. BEGIN IF ( Get_Item_Property(NAME_IN('SYSTEM.TRIGGER_ITEM'),ITEM_TYPE) IN ('DISPLAY ITEM','TEXT ITEM','LIST') ) THEN SELECT_ALL; END IF; END;
Hope this helps,
Thank you for the immediate reply. I have check and found its an Oracle issue in 11g (BUG-9024742) and with workaround as same code what you provided but in WHEN_MOUSE-CLICK trigger. I tried it and its working.
