Last Week i had a customer requirement for an easy method to enter a date, but only month and year.

Using the Date Picker Item it wasn’t possible to show a popup without the days, so I began a search and found a month picker jQuery Plugin.

Using that it was easy to create an APEX Plugin with simple settings:

We all read the blogpostings about what features were added in Oracle APEX 4.1, like the ones here, here, here and here.

But what does that mean on a more technical level? Which Views have changed, which API’s have changed?

Inspired by the Webinar over here I thought i’ll give the redgate Schema Compare Tool a try.

Going mobile is one of the hot topics at the moment. Everyone has a smartphone with internet connection and a browser. Some prefer brand A against brand B, but that’s just a personal preference. It doesn’t really change a thing.

You want to join the crowd and provide a mobile interface for your APEX Application? Nothing easier than that!

Oracle APEX 4.0 brought us a “Search Application” functionality which helps really a lot.

Not only can you search there for strings in your application code, you also can enter an page-id and jump directly to the page.

This is so good, that i thought i go a little further and improve it even more.

Recently i had to create a Button among Page Items which should execute a Javascript function.

Sounds easy, but standard Page Item Buttons always submit the Page, which isn’t what i wanted.

So i created this little Plugin….

Sometimes you want a user to enter an address which later on can be used to display it on a map. Now you want to make sure, that the user sees what the the map will look like and where his entered address is shown on the map.

This comes in very handy for those users who always seems to forget to enter the whole address.

The new Patch for APEX 4.0 with the version number 4.0.2.00.06 was just released.

Read all about it at Joels Blog.

Thanks to the APEX Development Team! You are doing a great job, hope to see many more releases in the future.

One nagging thing about APEX occurs often to me. It’s the inability to customize the Workspace Login Page.

In APEX Instances within corporations you may want to display your own Logo or some custom text explaining your developers what to do and what not.

One of the smaller but really helpful and cool features of Oracle APEX 4.0 is the Available Updates Section.

Yesterday the Patchset APEX 4.0.1.00.03 was released and today i can see it in my APEX Builder.
