When to Use the CUSTOM Library
There are three main cases for which you can code logic using the CUSTOM library. Each of these cases must be coded differently.
- Zoom--The addition of user-invoked logic on a per-block basis. A Zoom typically consists of opening another form and (optionally) passing parameter values to the opened form through the Zoom logic.
- Logic for generic events--Augment Oracle Applications logic for certain generic form events such as WHEN-NEW-FORM-INSTANCE or WHEN-VALIDATE-RECORD.
- Logic for product-specific events--Augment or replace Oracle Applications logic for certain product-specific events that enforce business rules.
Additional Information: For further instructions on using events other than ZOOM in the CUSTOM library, please see the Oracle Applications Developer's Guide
