    Clarification regarding g_notification / g_print_success_message

    swesley_perth
      Hi,

      I'm seeking clarification regarding the potential usage & behaviour of the apex_application globals g_notification & g_print_success_message.

      The package specification doesn't supply specific information, nor does the API documentation
      http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E37097_01/doc/doc.42/e35127/apex_app.htm#CHDDADIE
      and there seems to be conflicting information of various age in the forums.

      While experimenting today with theme 25 in 4.2.1, I noticed the following when setting variables (hopefully makes sense)

      Set variable direct from PL/SQL Page process
      g_notification did not display
      g_print_success_message displayed using success class via &success_message parameter

      On load application process from message set in application item
      g_notification displayed using notification class (although appeared slightly shorter with no auto-fade)
      g_print_success_message displayed using success class

      Would it be possible for the APEX team to suggest the current preferred method for customising notifications from the PL/SQL process?
      And if there are any other considerations to be made?

      Cheers,

      Scott.
