Oracle Forms 10g - Forms Look and Feel
Oracle Forms application have traditionally behaved as, and looked like, desktop applications. Even when Oracle Forms applications were Web deployed, they still gave the user the feel of the desktop. However, with more and more users becoming familiar with more traditional Web UIs (like HTML), there is a requirement from some customers to change the look of their Forms application: to "Freshen" it or align it with non-Forms Web applications. This paper explains how a person can separate the look of the Forms application from the functional design. All the decoration elements are read from an external CSS file, as currently done with HTML pages and so both HTML and Forms applications can share a common look and feel.
