Oracle Tips by Burleson 

Creating Multiple Buttons

HTML DB provides a method for the creation of many buttons at one time.  This method can be used to quickly define a number of buttons in a region all with the same button template.  This will make consistent looking buttons throughout the page.  Using this method can be a real time-saver if the developer knows what they want in their region.  The following example will show how.

The first step is to click on the Create button in the Page Rendering section of a Page Definition screen.  As before, this will begin the Button Wizard with the first page of the wizard shown in Figure 10.13.  The difference this time is the link at the bottom of this page, Create Multiple Buttons, will be selected.  But first, it will be necessary to specify the region in which to place the buttons by choosing the radio button for the region.

The Create Multiple Buttons link will display a new page that is shown in Figure 10.14.  Up to 12 buttons can be defined at once.  At the top of the page, there are two drop down boxes: one for the region; and one for the template.  The region may be changed.  The template drop down box only provides choices for the HTML DB button templates.  There is another box, HTML Attributes, that is used to specify any additional attributes for the buttons. 

In Figure 10.14, the creation of five different buttons using different labels and different positions has been specified.  These buttons can only be created in the Region positions and not among the pages items.  All that is left to do now is to click on the Create Buttons button.  Quick and easy!

To make it even easier, something else that HTML DB provides is a list of Quick Buttons.  This list is located on the right side of the Create Multiple Button page and is depicted in Figure 10.15.  When one of the links from this list is chosen, the next empty slot will be filled with the corresponding required values.  For example, if the Submit link in chosen, the Name of the button will be filled in with SUBMIT, the label value will be Submit, and the position will be #CREATE#.
