Oracle application express two level tabs, a how to

October 9, 2008

Well, just because it took me 1.5 days to figure out how to just get a simple two tab lay-out working with oracle Application express (Apex) I thought I’d share my new found glory.  For people that want to create and use a two tabbed lay out (actually the tabs part) I wrote a tutorial to figure out how to do so.

Creating some tabs that must be simple… that’s what impression you get from seeing the options in Apex but %$#% no, apex is completely useless the way it is set up and how naming of items can be used so inconsistently.

Well, all your worries will go away. You will find out that it is not you.  And you will finally get a better understanding how to use tabs in Apex.  And you maybe will think again before using such a silly oracle product 😉

It’s quite the story (17 pages) so I created a pdf file that contains the tutorial. Good luck.
