apex.oracle.com has been upgraded on Sept 6th 2013 to Version 4.2.3.00.07, which means a release of APEX 4.2.3 is close.
Friday night i finally arrived after a long flight from Vienna to Washington to New Orleans, whereas the flights were pretty good, it is just that endless series of waiting lines that is tiresome.
Anyway, i’m here and – as usual – still working on my slides and demos with the hope to impress at least some of the attendees :-)
After the APEX Developer Addon broke in Chrome 27, I had to change the underlying architecture and do a rewrite of the Addon basis.
Some nice guys helped me Beta-Test that over the last week. Now it should be good to go.
This is a quick one, if you have followed my other mobile blog posts.
When creating the mobile guide to the AOUG Conference 2013 (taking place June 17 and 18 in a historic Brewery in Vienna, Austria), i found myself creating a new theme using the themeroller, but still not getting the perfect result i wanted.
With Chrome Version 27 a security bug in the browser was fixed which caused the APEX Developer Addon to break. Thanks to all sending me a reply about that, i’m currently working on a fix and hope to be able to provide that soon. In the meantime please stay calm and use Firefox instead. P.S.: [...]
When developing mobile applications with APEX 4.2 you’ll find the developer toolbar on the page bottom is missing. This can be a little bit annoying when investigating misbehaving applications. Oracle recognizes this as Issue 14749955 with the workaround to access the toolbar functions through a desktop page…
Only a little over 6 weeks, then this years Kscope Conference starts in New Orleans. Last year i had the honor to present there for the first time and i absolutely loved it. Here’s why…
Yesterday i needed to find out if the current page of an application is rendered using the public Session 0 (zero). Seems to be a trivial task, simply look up :APP_SESSION and there you find …

This is Part 3 in my Blogpost Series on improving the APEX mobile Theme. I recommend to read Part 1 and Part 2 before continuing here. In this Post we deal with a special list template which we will use to create a Icon Home Screen (or a Icon Menu).
This is Part 2 in my Blogpost Series on improving the APEX mobile Theme. I recommend to read Part 1 before continuing here. Last time we covered how to create Report Templates that look like Listviews to give you better Pagination and more control over the Layout.
I finally can start on a new mobile Application, for the first time using Oracle APEX 4.2.1 for a productive mobile App. All my other mobile Applications have been built with previous Versions of APEX and my self made themes. So apologies for writing that blogpost so late. But better late than never, right? If [...]
So you just created your first mobile Application with APEX 4.2 and now wonder how to get your company colors in? Thanks to jQuery mobile this is a pretty easy task as they provide a tool for that: the ThemeRoller.
I just got the good news that I was accepted as an Oracle ACE Director ! This is something that makes me very proud and honors my work, thanks for everyone that supported me.
I just released a new Version of the ApexLib APEX Developer Addon, a great tool that brings more features and functionality to your APEX Application Builder without installing anything in your Database. It is a simple Addon for Firefox and Chrome Browsers, and can be installed in a few easy steps.
Oracle Application Express Release 4.2.1.00.08 was released on December 14, 2012. A good oportunity to take a look behind the scenes and see what actually changed. If you are coming from APEX 4.0 (or older) read the Posts about the differences in Oracle APEX 4.1 and the Patchset 4.1.1 and the changed things in APEX [...]
A while back – December 2011 – I had the chance to speak at the UKOUG 2011 Conference in 2011. It was a great experience to visit that Conference for the first time and meet so many people there. The audience was really great and the parties were awesome!

This Post tries to give you a summary of the big changes in Oracle APEX 4.2 (compared to 4.1.1) from a datamodel/view/API Point of view. If you [...]

A Question I get over and over again is: how can I position the Cursor in the Interactive Report Search Field when the Page Loads? Well, the Answer is simple, but not obvious. At first you have to change the Page Setting Cursor Focus to Do not focus cursor, because the Setting First Item on [...]
