When are you getting this message?

For suppressing normal messages in forms, you can set
:SYSTEM.MESSAGE_LEVEL := value

But prompts and vital error messages cannot be suppressed using this.

If you want to clear a form without saving use, CLEAR_FORM(NO_VALIDATE);

You could also use exit_form(no_validate); or simply exit(no_validate);

Hi,

This is how i have done and it works. Create a save button. In the when button_pressed trigger
declare
 al_button number;
 al_id ALERT := find_alert('caution');
begin
 if :global.insertupdateflag = 1 then
   (globally defined variable)
 set_alert_property('caution',alert_message_text,'Do You want to save the changes (Y/N) ?');
 set_alert_button_propert(al_id,alert_button1,label,'Yes');
 set_alert_button_property(al_id,alert_button2,label,'No');
 al_button := show_alert(al_id);
 if al_button = alert_button1 then
   goto commitblock;
 else
   goto endblock;

<<commitblock>>
:global.errcode = 0 then
 commit;
if :global.errcode = 1 then
 goto endblock;
end if;

<<endblock>>
null;

end

here the commitblock is where you are saving the changes. if the errorcode (errcode) is 0 then it will commit otherwise it will go to the endblock and wll not commit the changes.

Hope this will help you.

Are you wanting to save and exit or cancel and exit?

Route all exiting via one form procedure
If you want to cancel and exit use EXIT_FORM(NO_VALIDATE) as suggested.
If you want to save and exit use COMMIT;
You may want to hide the messages
40400 : transaction complete: x records applied and saved
40401 : no changes to save
You can do this by putting something in the form on-message trigger that examines the MESSAGE_CODE and then supresses the messages that you want to supress.
