enabling text items in oracle 8i,forms6i

I use oracle 8i and forms6i. When I am disabling one text item and enabling it again thro form triggers, it behaves differently. The cursor is blinking inside text box, but the user is unable to key in anything. Any help ?

When you disable a text item, it does more than just set Enabled=False; it also sets Navigable=False, Update_Null=False, Updateable=False and Required=False.

When you enable it again, you will need to set the above properties to True as well.

You need to set the following properties for the items at run time to enable an item.

Set_Item_Property(Item, Enabled, Property_True);
Set_Item_Property(Item, Navigable, Property_True);
Set_Item_Property(Item, Updatable, Property_True);
