10 List of Values (LOVs)

In order to streamline the tools available and simplify the development process for building Forms applications for the Web, List of Values (LOVs) that are not applicable to Web deployment have been removed.

10.1 Obsolete List of Values (LOVs)

LOVs based on record groups are still valid. However, "Old-style" LOVs (V2.3-style LOVs) are obsolete in Oracle Forms.

When forms that contain old-style LOVs are upgraded to Forms Developer, the old-style LOVs' Old LOV Text property, which refers to a table and column (such as EMP.ENAME), is converted to a "new-style" LOV by creating a record group based on a query (select <column> from <table>). The new-style LOV is based on the new record group.
