Oracle Observations

Using default oracle forms icons and graphics.

Filed under: Oracle forms — bigdaveroberts @ 4:30 pm

One suggestion on tuning oracle forms applications included in the AMIS blog:  http://technology.amis.nl/blog/10141/oracle-forms-10g-tuning-tips was to use the icons included in the Oracle forms java runtime.

While I don’t imagine saving a few thousand bytes of data downloaded to the client PC will substantively improve performance, how do we use these free icons?

After a little experimentation it is apparent that all we need to do is to include a UNIX style (that is with a forward slash and case sensitive directory/file names) relative path.

For convenience the most useful icons are listed here:

oracle/forms/icons/canqry.gif  
oracle/ewt/laf/oracle/images/caution.gif  
oracle/ewt/laf/generic/images/caution.gif  
oracle/ewt/laf/oracle/images/colorChoice.gif  
oracle/forms/icons/copy.gif  
oracle/forms/icons/cut.gif  
oracle/forms/icons/delrec.gif  
oracle/forms/icons/ellipsis.gif  
oracle/forms/icons/entqry.gif  
oracle/forms/icons/exeqry.gif  
oracle/forms/icons/exit.gif  
oracle/ewt/laf/oracle/images/folder.gif  
oracle/forms/icons/frame.gif  
oracle/forms/icons/help.gif  
oracle/forms/icons/insrec.gif  
oracle/forms/icons/lockrec.gif  
oracle/ewt/laf/generic/images/multiItemDrag.gif  
oracle/ewt/laf/oracle/images/note.gif  
oracle/ewt/laf/generic/images/note.gif  
oracle/forms/icons/nxtblk.gif  
oracle/forms/icons/nxtrec.gif  
oracle/forms/icons/paste.gif  
oracle/forms/icons/print.gif  
oracle/forms/icons/prvblk.gif  
oracle/forms/icons/prvrec.gif  
oracle/forms/icons/pset.gif  
oracle/forms/icons/save.gif  
oracle/ewt/laf/oracle/images/stop.gif  
oracle/ewt/laf/generic/images/stop.gif  

 

And while it might only have a marginal effect on performance, it should be a good first step to establishing a consistent look and feel!
