24.1.4 Using Legacy Component View

Developers can view and edit database application pages using Component View.

Topics: Viewing a Page in Legacy Component View


Legacy Component View is a legacy user interface for editing application pages. Oracle recommends developers use Page Designer instead of Legacy Component View. Legacy Component View does not offer a visual representation of a page or support the dragging and dropping of page components. To preview the position of components on a page, you must run it. Also, some application components, such as interactive grids and Oracle JET based charts, cannot be edited or maintained using the Legacy Component View.

To view a page in Legacy Component View:

  1. Navigate to the Workspace home page.
  2. Click the App Builder icon.
  3. Select an application.
  4. Select a page

    The default view, Page Designer, appears.

  5. In the central pane, click the Component View tab.

    To assist developers with the transition to Page Designer, Page Designer includes a Component View tab. Similar in appearance to Legacy Component View, the Component View tab presents user interface elements and application logic by component type. However, when you click a component, the Property Editor highlights the corresponding attribute in the right pane.

  6. Click Legacy Component View. Edit All, Copy, and Create Icons

Edit All Icon

You can edit the controls, components, or logic within a given subsection by clicking the Edit All icon that displays to the right of the subsection title. The Edit All icon resembles a piece of paper with a pencil on top of it.

You can copy or create controls or components by clicking the Copy and Create icons.

The Copy icon resembles two small overlapping pages. Click the Copy icon to make a copy of an existing control or component.
