I have just recently begun using Forms 5 and I have successfully created
simple single-window applications. However, my project requirements are a
bit more demanding.
After signing the user onto the database, I would like to bring up an empty
application window and allow the user to use the classic menu selections
File->Open->PickFromMyListOfWindows to open their windows of choice.
Thus far, I have been unable to:
1) Open just the application - for some reason, one of my windows ALWAYS
opens with the application. Is there some property that I need to remove to
2) Open a new window from the menu - when I select any of my
window-opening options, I get the following error: FRM-10242: Cannot call
linked in Forms from Form Builder.
The online help really offers no explanation about what I am doing
incorrectly. It says, "The menu designer specified a call to linked-in
Forms from within Form Builder. Action: Notify your DBA."
Of course, when I asked my DBA and he said this was an application issue and
he could offer no help.
Does anyone know the answers to my two problems? Please help.
