Text In A Multi-Line Item Is Not Highlighted / Selected When Tab Into The Field
Last updated on JUNE 08, 2013
Applies to:Oracle Forms - Version 220.127.116.11.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
You have a form with an item that has Multi-Line=Yes and Wrap Style=Word.
From Forms Runtime, you TAB into the field with text data in it, the following behavior is shown:
Forms 10gr2 – highlights all of the text data in that field.
Forms 11.1.1.x – DOES NOT highlight text data. The cursor is positioned at the beginning of the item.
Forms 18.104.22.168 – DOES NOT highlight text data. The cursor is positioned at the beginning of the item.
The TAB shows a change of behavior from Forms 10gR2 to Forms 11g. The only workaround in Forms 11g is to physically use the mouse to highlight the text.
Migrated to Forms 11g.
