In Web Deployed Forms There is No Difference in Appearance Between Updateable and Non-Updateable Checkbox (Doc ID 360108.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 24, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle Forms - Version 4.5.10 to 10.1.2.0.2 [Release 4.5.10 to Oracle10g]
Information in this document applies to any platform.
This problem can occur on any platform.

Symptoms

A form contains a block item which corresponds to a database column which is non-updateable.
The values for this item are 'Yes' or 'No', so the style for this item, chosen at design time, is checkbox.

When this item checkbox has property Update Allowed = No the appearance of this checkbox at runtime remains unchanged. To the end user it is as though the checkbox is available for update (e.g. it is displayed as black on white)

If the item property Enabled is set to "no" the display of the checkbox is 'grey on grey'. This, however, may make it very difficult for the end user to work out whether or not the check box is checked. Setting the background and foreground color properties makes no difference to the color inside the box or the color of the tick.

In summary:

Checkbox is black tick on white

Checkbox is black tick on white

Checkbox is black tick on white

Checkbox is grey tick on grey background -- in this respect the tick is not easy to read
