CREATE OR REPLACE VIEW QC_DAILY_VW
(DEPT_ID, QC_TYPE_ID, QC_SUBTYPE_ID, QC_DATES, CONTROL_NO)
AS
select a.dept_id,a.qc_type_id,
      a.qc_subtype_id,b.qc_dates,b.control_no
from qc_dept_subtypes a,qc_daily b
where a.dept_id = b.dept_id(+)
and a.qc_subtype_id = b.qc_subtype_id(+)
and a.qc_type_id = b.qc_type_id(+)
--and a.dept_id = 11
and b.qc_dates(+) = to_date(sys_context('mydate','given_date'),'dd/mm/rrrr')
-------------------
In my forms I call this in the post query
my_pkg.test_context(:qc_dept_subtypes.qc_dates);
First time the form is blank. when I close it and reopen then the data displays. Why is this happening.

it's the "POST" query that is the problem

the view is based on the value of the context,  so it must be set BEFORE you read the view.

The context won't change unless you change it, so setting it once on the form is sufficient.

to fix it, set it before the form's query executes

should I set it in the when-validate-trigger of the date filed? or when new form instance?

I tried to set it in the when new block instance trigger of the view block. It still does not work. I commented tyhe line in post query and now I have it only in the when new block, but nothing works. But when I requery it brings the data.
