This Java Bean is provided by Oleg Tishchenco.

One of the most utilized feature of the Oracle Forms is the LOV. Tough Oracle Forms provide us with plenty of functions and properties to customize LOV's appearance and behavior at runtime we still lack some control on LOV:
  • there is Set_LOV_Column_Property to change column's width and title but there is no any Get_LOV_Column_Property;
  • there is no way to recognize how many columns are there;
  • there is no way to get actual size of the LOV. For some reason Get_LOV_Property( LOV_SIZE ) always returns design time width and height;
This is a JavaBean (java part was done by my coworker Michel Kizhner) that fix these breaches by silently parsing LOV's window structure at runtime and sending the result back to Forms via custom event call. Also to make development easier there is UTL_LOV package that wrap all the details of communication to this JavaBean. With this package you can:
  • get how many columns exists in LOV:
UTL_LOV.Get_LOV_Property( <lov_name>, COLUMN_NAME )
  • get column's width and title:
UTL_LOV.Get_LOV_Column_Property( <lov_name>,<column>, WIDTH )
UTL_LOV.Get_LOV_Column_Property( <lov_name>,<column>, TITLE )
  • get actual size of the LOV:
UTL_LOV.Get_LOV_Property( <lov_name>, LOV_SIZE )
if you need for any reason design time width and height you can get it with
UTL_LOV.Get_LOV_Property( <lov_name>, WINDOW_SIZE )

See UTL_LOV package specification for more details.
