Oracle Apex: Inserting Records into Interactive Grid Using JavaScript

Below is an example to insert records into the interactive grid using the JavaScript in Oracle Apex.

To demonstrate the following example, I have created an interactive grid based on the following table:

Create Table demo_js_insert (
    code_seq    Number,
    code_desc   Varchar2(20)

Also, I have these non-database items on my page:

  • P2_END_SEQ

JavaScript Code Example

Created a button named “InsRecords”, on which I have written the following JavaScript code to insert records into the interactive grid having the static id “ig_js_insert”. I will set the field code_seq value to P2_START_SEQ value and will insert the records until the P2_END_SEQ value. Also, will set the value of a field code_desc to the P2_SEQ_DESC value.

//change the ig_js_insert with the static id of your interactive grid
var widget      = apex.region('ig_js_insert').widget();
var grid        = widget.interactiveGrid('getViews','grid');  
var model       = grid.model; 
var n_code_start, n_code_end, v_desc;

n_code_start = parseInt($v("P2_START_SEQ"), 10);
n_code_end = parseInt($v("P2_END_SEQ"), 10);
v_desc = $v("P2_SEQ_DESC");

for (let i = n_code_start; i <= n_code_end; i++) {
    //insert new record on a model
    var myNewRecordId = model.insertNewRecord();

    //get the new record
    var myNewRecord = model.getRecord(myNewRecordId);

    //update record values
    model.setValue(myNewRecord, 'CODE_SEQ', i.toString());
    model.setValue(myNewRecord, 'CODE_DESC', v_desc);

After inserting the records, when the user will click on the Save button, then it will save it to the database table.
