Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I don’t think that’s possible using an ALERT in forms 6i, however, you could create your own alert (a new window with a couple of display items and the necessary buttons), then when you call this window you start a timer (1000 msecs), and in the Form’s WHEN-TIMER-EXPIRED trigger you set the current time to one of the display items (<b>to_char(sysdate,’hh24:mi:ss’)</b>).
