Your chance! Call for Paper for next ODTUG conference!

You will not guess where I’m! ;-)

On the other side it’s not very hard to guess. I’m there where most of the Oracle blogging and Oracle APEX community currently is. I’m at Oracle Open World in San Francisco.

I’m not sure how often I will blog, because I have a tight time schedule. But if you want to get hold of me, I will try to visit most of the Oracle APEX sessions.

On Tuesday, between 14:30 and 15:30 I’m doing my own presentation titled The Power of the Oracle APEX Repository (Session Id: 300210). It’s currently booked out, but you might get a chance to still get in.

Enough for now, I have to listen to Tom Kyte’s “Efficient Schema Design” now.

Number of displayed Records of Oracle APEX Popup LOV

Recently I answered a question about where to change the number of displayed records of a Popup LOV in Oracle APEX and I thought it could be of general interest.

The behavior of Popup LOVs can be changed through the Popup Lov template. You can find it at
Shared Components\Templates\Popup LOV.

In the Pagination section you will find the property Display which defines how many records are displayed at once.

The Popup LOV template also contains other interesting settings like the icon which is used for the popup lov field or the text for the search button, the width and height which is used to display the popup lov window and much more. Just have a look!
