UKOUG TECHEBS 2011 Presentations

I just wanted to do another quick, post-conference follow up post after UKOUG TECHEBS 2011 in Birmingham. At this conference I presented on 2 topics relating to Application Express and as promised, here are the slides and samples I showed during the sessions:




With the accessibility sample, by just looking at the application, I appreciate it's not easy to work out exactly what I did to make it more accessible, so will try and follow up with some more information in the next couple of weeks about the changes. (Hopefully the slides and application together are still of some use now, until I do this.) Also, I had some interesting feedback after the session, where 2 people suggested the screen reader demo's could be done with the projector switched off, which I thought was a great idea to try and provide a more accurate user experience, so will try and incorporate that next time.

Thanks to all who attended, I hope you got something from them.

Just a quick post to follow up from my presentation today at OpenWorld, 'Oracle Application Express 4.1 - Dynamic Actions'. In the session, I promised to provide the slides and sample applications I used, so here they are.

The zip file contains the slides and 2 sample applications entitled 'Examples' and 'Common Questions'.

Thanks to all who attended, hope you found it useful!

Application Express 4.1 - #BUTTON_ID# Changed Behaviour

I just wanted to blog about some changed behaviour that will be landing in APEX 4.1. The change has to do with the #BUTTON_ID# substitution string, available for use within a button template and we hope will have minimal impact.

APEX 4.0 Enhancements: Validating Form Data

Oracle Application Express 4.0 introduces lots of big new features; websheets, dynamic actions, plug-ins, RESTful web services, team development, updated charts, the list goes on. But there are also many enhancements to existing functionality that we hope will help to simplify the overall process of developing applications in APEX. One such area, and the focus of this post is how data is validated. This post will give you an overview of what's changed with validations and how these changes will make your daily development life a little easier.
