I have a standalone PC with Windows XP Professional connected to the Internet. Oracle forms 6i, database 10g Enterprise Edition Release 10.2.0.1.0. One of the fileds in my Oracle form 6i contains web addresses. Is it possible to navigate to the web site by double clicking on this field? Thanks. Lev.

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

One option could be using the DDE package to start the browser (but you would probably need to write the complete path to it), with the web address as a parameter.

You would need to write some code in the when-mouse-doubleclick trigger of the text item.

Something like this:

<pre>DECLARE
ap PLS_INTEGER;
BEGIN
ap := DDE.App_Begin(‘C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe ‘||:your_block.your_item,DDE.APP_MODE_NORMAL);
END;</pre>
