Setting the Property to BLINK in Forms Does not Work (Doc ID 112864.1)

Last updated on MAY 31, 2023

Applies to:

Oracle Forms - Version 6.0.8 and later
Oracle Forms for OCI - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


You are trying to set the Font Style property of a item or a boilerplate text and set it to blink. Though it is accepting the property, the item or text is not blinking.

(Note that this issue occurs in JRE versions prior to 1.7. Forms 11g+ with JRE1.7 blinks as expected.)
