Get_File_Name Usage in Oracle Forms 6i

Get_File_Name is built-in function of Oracle Forms 6i, used to get the file name with address by browsing the file. You can browse a specific extension name file or with multiple extensions using wild cards.
In this example I am showing three different usage of Get_File_Name function, one is given for to get any Csv file name into a display field, second is given to read image files into an image item and third is for sound item.
Below is the screen shot for this example:

You can also download this form from the following link: GetFileName.fmb

Write the following code on When-Button-Pressed trigger for Browse CSV Files button:

declare
 filename varchar2(500);
begin
filename := GET_FILE_NAME(File_Filter=> 'CSV Files
(*.Csv)|*.Csv|');

:block2.txtfile := filename;

end;
Write the following code on When-Button-Pressed trigger for Upload Image button:
declare
 filename varchar2(500);
begin
filename := GET_FILE_NAME(File_Filter=> 'Jpg Files
(*.jpg)|*.jpg|Gif Files (*.gif)|*.gif|All Files (*.*)|*.*|');

READ_IMAGE_FILE(filename, 'JPEG', 'block2.image9');
end;
Write the following code on When-Button-Pressed trigger for Browse Wave button:
declare
 filename varchar2(500);
begin
filename := GET_FILE_NAME(File_Filter=> 'Wav Files
(*.wav)|*.wav|All Files (*.*)|*.*|');

READ_sound_FILE(filename, 'wave', 'block2.sound_item11');
play_sound('block2.sound_item11');
end;
