    Function keys Triggers

    Moazam Shareef

      Kindly correct me the function keys associated with triggers in oracle forms 6i.
      F1= (Display properties of an Item ID)
      F2= ?
      F4= ?
      F5= (KEY-MENU)
      F6= ?
      F7= (KEY-ENTQRY)
      F8= (KEY-EXEQRY)
      F9= ?
      F0= (KEY COMMIT)

          The easist way to determine what key is attached to what action would be to run any form that uses the Formsd default menu. Then click on Help > Keys. This will show you what action each key will perform. If you do not see a particular key listed, you can assume it is not setup to perform any Forms specific action.

          Note that these actions and key relationships can be changed in whichever resource file your application is configured to use. Which one is used by default will depend on a variety of factors. For example, exactly which Forms version are you using, on what platform is it running, and is the application web deployed or not.

          By the way, Forms 6i is very old and mostly considered obsolete. Be sure to take a look at the latest versions of Forms, which is now part of Fusion Middleware.
