The material comes from the JDICplus project (WIN32 only):
It can accept both http url and local machine html file names.
It needs, at least, a 1.6 JRE so the Sun Java plug-in, so that it won't run with the JInitiator and earlier version of the Sun Java plug-in.
The Java code
The implementation class of the Bean Item
The methods you can call
- Register the bean
fbean.register_bean('BL.BEAN', 1, 'oracle.forms.ms.ehb');
This is the very first operation you have to do.
- Get the Forms Window
fbean.invoke( 'BL.BEAN', 1, 'infoBean', '');
This must be used to retrieve the Forms window that handles the webBrowser, then synchronize its position when the windows is moved. This must be the first property set (in the When-New-Form-Instance trigger).
- Set the URL/File
fbean.invoke( 'BL.BEAN', 1, 'setUrl', 'URL');
fbean.invoke( 'BL.BEAN', 1, 'setUrl', 'http://mark-oracle.blogspot.com');
- Set the border of the bean
fbean.invoke( 'BL.BEAN', 1, 'setBorder', 'false');
When you want to use this bean to display a Flash image (*.swf), you would probably prefer not to have any border bounding the image.
In this case, set the border to false.
- Basic navigation
fbean.invoke( 'BL.BEAN', 1, 'setNavigation', 'back | forward | refresh' ) ;
fbean.invoke( 'BL.BEAN', 1, 'setNavigation', 'back');
