In the next few days I plan to write a series of blog postings about the Plug-In Enhancements which will be available in Oracle APEX 5.0* The plan is to cover the following areas:
- Create Plug-ins as Subscription from Master Application
- Directory Support for Static Plug-in Files
- Plug-In Attribute Enhancements
- New Plug-in Attribute Types
- Set Cursor Focus for Region Type Plug-Ins
- New API: apex_plugin_util.get_attribute_as_number
- New Region Columns Plug-Ins
The last one, ‘New Region Columns Plug-Ins’ is probably the most exciting one because it allows to create your own report like plug-ins. Stay tuned!
*Note: As of this writing, APEX 5.0 is only available as a pre-production version installed on apex.oracle.com and might change until it gets released.
