Oracle Tips by Burleson
Creating a Branch
Creating branches is accomplished from the page
definition page. The imaginary example shown below will create a
branch to a page, clear the cache, and send two values to set page
Click on the in
the Branches area under Page Processing.
On the Point and Type page:
On the Target page enter the appropriate information and click
Next. Figure 12.5 shows the Target page for this example. Notice the
use of the &ITEM. notation in the With these values
On the Branch Conditions page:
Set the Sequence for the order in which
the branches are to execute.
Select the correct item for When
Button Pressed if this branch should only execute when a
particular button is pressed.
Select a Condition Type, if
appropriate, and fill in the proper Expressions
If there are two or more buttons that the branch should respond
to, the When Button Pressed option cannot be used. Instead, use a Request Is
Contained within Expression 1 condition type and enter the names
of the buttons in Expression 1, such as CREATE or EDIT. Then
the branch will be executed for either of the two buttons.
