When I test my form using the IDE runtime, I nice toolbar appears that contains items like next record, first record, previous record, last record green arrows and printer, file, etc.  When I run the form using the command line runtime, I do not get the toolbar.  What do I have to do to get this toolbar to display from the command line?

In the forms designer' object navigator double-click on the form module.

In Forms 6i, there are properties for menu source and menu module.  The menu modules you see when running from the designer are DEFAULT&SMARTBAR. The menu source is either file or database.  If there is no menu defined the form will use the menu from the calling form.

In windows and forms 6i, the location of the menu files (.MMX) are in the location defined by the registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ORACLE\FORMS60_PATH or
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ORACLE\FORMS60_PATH.


Where are you storing menus?
Are you running it from the same PC that you have forms designer? What version of forms are you using 6i-9i?

How can I add the default menu to the menu option of the form so that the forms will not grab the previous form's menu

In Forms 6i, set the properties for menu source = file and menu module = DEFAULT&SMARTBAR

The form was already set to these values and it did not work; however, when I changed the previous form's menu module to DEFAULT&SMARTBAR, my form displayed the toolbar as you said so apparentely what I need to be able to do is override the rule where a form takes on it's parent's menu

How are you moving between forms?

I tend to use call form as the default which has a parameter which determines if you change menus.

I started with forms 4 and I think this still applies for 6i forms:
