Kurz notiert: am 4.11.2016 gibts ein APEX Frühstücks-Meetup mit vielen neuen Infos zu Oracle APEX.

Thanks Tim for coming up with that great idea.

My favorite feature is the Oracle APEX Metadata Repository.

That’s a looong title, right?

I got a questions like that in the past year on a regular basis: “do you know how to remove the Set Screen Reader Mode On link from an APEX application footer without breaking the universal theme subscription?”

At yesterdays APEX Meetup in Vienna someone asked if there is a way to switch an Interactive Report programmatically (using Javascript) to Icon / List / Report – View in APEX 5, since gReport doesn’t exist anymore (which could do the job before APEX 5).


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.

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 Gateway, but based on the documentation I’d say it works as well as the mod_plsql way.

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 good ones.

You can check this public APEX website to see how good URLs can look like: www.click-click.at

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 Page doesn’t count the IR-Search Field as Item.

Today (Tuesday March 27th 2012) started the first ODTUG APEX Plugin Competition. This is a chance for everybody to submit their self created Plugins to get reviewed, judged and maybe win one of the many Prizes available.

Plugins will be judged upon skill level of its creator. That means beginners and experts will not be in the same category, to make it fair to everyone.
