Hi all .
Is it possible to pass the Item_id dynamically to the SET_ITEM_PROPERTY?

normally we pass it like SET_ITEM_PROPERTY('Item_id',property,value);
item_id is within single quotes ('item_id')
but if we pass some variable say 'M_DAY' which will have item_id's, will it work. I didn't try it yet. Thought i could get some feedback here before proceeding. any example will higly appriciated


Thanks in Advance

Search the help manuals (F1 in Forms Developer) for the built-in function "NAME_IN". It should be and do exactly what you arre looking for...

That is correct.  To do this dynamically in Oracle Forms, you need to use the "name_in" built-in function.
