Hello Experts,

I am looking for a way to send the Apex user login to an item on a page.

lets say

:P3_REP,

I would like that the default text on this item (item type = text) will be the same username that was used to log in to the application.

Thanks

The APEX variable APP_USER has the current login name

:APP_USER   - bind variable form
&APP_USER.  -- substitution form (remember to include the trailing dot)


Or, you can pull the current value with the "V" function

V('APP_USER')
