How To Use

It is very simple to use, no need to attache any library to your form, just copy all three files to your current working directory of your application. Suppose you have a form and there is one or many date date type fields in the form. You have to create key-listval trigger for those date type fields or create a push button adjacent to those fields and paste the below code in when-button-pressed trigger:

DECLARE
pl_id paramList;
begin
:GLOBAL.G_LOV_DATE := TRUNC(SYSDATE);
  pl_id := Get_Parameter_List(‘foxcal’);
  IF NOT Id_Null(pl_id) THEN  
    destroy_parameter_list(pl_id);
  end if;
  pl_id := create_parameter_list(‘foxcal’);
  add_parameter(pl_id, ‘XPOS’, text_parameter, to_char(50));
  add_parameter(pl_id, ‘YPOS’, text_parameter, to_char(100));
  add_parameter(pl_id, ‘CURRDATE’, text_parameter, to_char(Sysdate));
  add_parameter(pl_id, ‘Label’, text_parameter, ‘Date Picker’);
  CALL_FORM(‘foxcal’, no_hide, do_replace, query_only, no_share_library_data, pl_id);
  :yourdateitem := :Global.G_LOV_Date;
  erase(‘Global.G_LOV_DATE’);
END;

Note: Your current working directory for form designer and runtime should be the directory where you copied the above mentioned three files.

    Hard code the path to call foxcal eg. C:yourappfoxcal.fmx or copy all the files in your app directory and change the working directory of your application shortcut to that directory where you copied the files.

    Could you provide .fmb file also sir please. Because its compiled under windows and my environment is under linux. Please Help

    kindly provide foxcal.fmb OR provide foxcal.fmx (compiled with 11g Fusion middle ware Forms builder). because your foxcal.frm is running with 6i but not with 11g Fusion middleware.
