Forms12c: Not Able To Get Proper Value After Delete or Clear on List Item or Combo Box Value
Last updated on MAY 14, 2018
Applies to:Oracle Forms - Version 220.127.116.11.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
For example, if you are using a list item (combo box), the issue occurs when the value which is selected before from the list (after the previous value was deleted) is the same as the value before the deletion.
1. Choose value from list (e.g. "A")
2. Get value.
3. Clear value (e.g. using Delete Key)
4. Choose value from list which is same value as step 1 (e.g. "A")
5. Get the Value and result is NULL
NOTE: If you choose different value (e.g. "B") on step 4, you will not hit this issue. Also, after Step 5, if you select the same value again, you can get the appropriate value.
This issue did not occur in 11g Forms.
