Getting Path information at forms runtime
Posted on 2002-04-10
I have a question which i can't seem to solve, but i think it's pretty easy to do.
This is it:
I'm building an application using among others Oracle Forms 5.0 . Integrated in the application is a piece of software called fire from Formida. We use this to project Oracle Spatial-data to a map of the port of Rotterdam.
Formida needs certain commandfiles to do its magic. But it can't use the working directory forms is using. So what i want to do is at runtime pass the path in which i'm working to this programm.
The passing of information is no problem, but i want to load the path-information (which can vary because of the mapping of users) in a variable.
How do i do this...?
Any (fast) help would be greatly appreciated.
