In the last post I showed how you can upload a custom theme to the instance repository so that all your developers can choose that theme within the create application wizard. And more importantly, subscribe that theme from the theme repository.
Now the next question is how to update that public theme so that all applications can inherit the changes.
The Universal Theme introduced with APEX 5 is immensly good looking and comes with a powerful Theme Roller to customize it.
With that new theme most, if not all, older themes are obsolete.
That leaves us just with a few corporate designs which can’t (or don’t want to) be replaced by the UT.
Now ideally you want your developers to use that custom theme in all applications and also subscribe to that.
Quick note: I finally managed to get the APEX Developer Addon signed by Mozilla and therefor working again in Firefox 43 upwards. Please re-download and install, version of the Addon in Firefox is now 188.8.131.52. No changes for Chrome. Apologies for the inconvenience and thanks for all those mails I got.
Last year was very eventful at FOEX, which kept me occupied and kept me from blogging. Thankfully I managed to attend a few conferences and stay in touch with the community through Twitter and Slack on apex.world. FOEX is growing a lot and needed a new website design, so we had a brainstorming meeting and […]
One of many small enhancements in Oracle APEX 5.0 is a small utility that can be used to help debugging an APEX application from SQLPLUS or sqlcl.
If you haven’t heard: APEX 5.0 is out ! And I finally got some time on my hands to do my usual “diff” between the new and previous version to point out all API and View changes. To me this is a very valuable exercise to absorb all new information and to get to know […]
Currently there are multiple positions open for APEX Developers locally in Vienna/Austria.
Hi everyone and happy “new” year! This year’s resolution is to do even more APEX. Is this possible, you might ask? Sure, for example on Feb 19 2015 at our next orclapex Vienna Meetup. Hope to see you there. Patrick and Christian will provide us with the latest news of APEX 5 and tell us […]
As preparation for my Presentation about Worst Practices in Oracle APEX I set up a survey using the Survey Builder Packaged Application. Please help out and fill in the survey: https://apex.oracle.com/pls/apex/f?p=80076:Q::AAAW There will be a follow up post with details on worst practices and survey results. Thanks for your time, Peter
For a long while now I’m having this idea to initiate an APEX group on some social network to bring APEX Fans together and have regular meetings in my hometown Vienna, Austria. This idea in mind I met Dan McGhan at APEX World 2014 in Zeist, Netherlands. While talking about this and that we discovered […]
Suddenly a big thunder rolled through the APEX community -> Version 5.0 has arrived in an early adopter version, as published on Joel Kallmans Blog (as usual on a friday, late night over here in europe).
In the first two parts of this blogpost series we covered the basics and the technique on how to provide nice/friendly/readable URLs for a public APEX Application. If you haven’t read the other two parts, please go back and read part 1, then read part 2. Done? Ok, lets continue.
In the first part of this Blogpost Series we touched some fundamentals and finally listed some options. If you haven’t read it, yet, please do now before continuing here. The last post ended with me saying I found a way for hrURLs that works with APEX Listener, mod_plsql and EPG. I haven’t tested the Thoth […]
Searching the APEX Forum for nice URLs is as old as Oracle APEX itself, so far without much luck. There is magic switch that forces APEX to create readable URLs. As part of preparing my Presentation “Going Public” for Kscope 2014 in Seattle, I investigated the available methods on providing readable URLs and found some […]
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 […]
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.
