Two not-to-miss APEX events in June !

June will be a busy month. Not only the famous ODTUG's Kaleidoscope conference will be held that month, but also two events in Europe!
The first one is on Tuesday, June 15 in Dublin. CampusIT organizes a free (!) one day APEX event, packed with good sessions from Dimitri Gielis from Sumneva, Hilary Farell and Barry McGillin from Oracle and Jan Navratil from CampusIT (and I'll do a session myself). You can register using this link.
Later that week, on Thursday, June 17, the first official OBUG APEX SIG event is planned. The location will be conveniently located for all attendees from Belgium, The Netherlands and Luxembourg, somewhere in or around Antwerp. Also this event is jam packed with sessions, all aimed at APEX 4.0. Patrick Wolf, Dimitri Gielis, Iloon Ellen and myself will do a session on one (or more) of the many APEX 4.0 new features. There are still two presentation slots open, so if you do have a good APEX 4.0 idea and want to present on this great event, send a mail with the title and abstract to Dimitri or myself and you might join the stage! Registration has just opened - free for OBUG members! -, so follow this link.
Hope to see you at one (or both?) of these events!

Showing a success message after closing a modal dialog

APEX 5 comes with Modal Dialogs out of the box. Very neat. Especially for adding and changing data. And to minimise the number of time a user has to click, it could be useful to add a "Close Dialog" process after the actual data processing. When the data processing fails, the Dialog stays on top showing the error. When data processing runs fine, the Dialog is closed ... without any confirmation. And this might be scary for a shaky user.

So how can we provide the user some feedback? On Page 4 of the Sample Dialog Application you can see one solution: up on a Dialog Closed Event on the parent page it does a redirect to refresh the parent page appending the success message of the "Close Dialog" process. This has two drawbacks. First, it probably refreshes more than necessary. And second, if you're using multiple layers of dialogs (dialogs that open other dialogs) the message appears in the "parent dialog".
As an alternative you could follow these steps: 1…

A review of APEX World 2017 - Day 1

Last week the SS Rotterdam was the beautiful location of the largest gathering of APEX Developers worldwide. With around 380 (!) attendees a new high was set. And they came from all over the world : I spotted people from The Netherlands, Belgium, Switzerland, Austria, Croatia, Germany, Denmark, Norway, UK, Ireland and the USA. And I even might have missed one or two ….

The event started with a presentation by the “father of APEX”, Mike Hichwa, talking about "Oracle APEX Past, Present and Future”. Of course everyone is curious what the APEX future might bring: Friendly URL’s, automated testing, more JSON, concurrent APEX versions, third party Oauth 2 authentication (think Facebook, Google), APEX app diff and more, a lot more, REST capabilities. And now we have to wait for APEX 5.2 … and that might take a while! 
After this keynote, the conference split up in three tracks. After the coffee break I returned to to big theatre where Geertjan Wielenga talked about "Finally Javas…

It's happening again ... running for the ODTUG Board of Directors 😉

For the third time in a row I'll be running for ODTUG's Board of Directors. But after ending as a runner up twice, I am sure I'm going to make it this time! But not without your help!

My campaign statement this year is:
I have been attending and presenting at Kscope conferences since 2007. This not only resulted in a vast amount of knowledge, but also - and even more important - a huge number of friends from all over the globe.  I want to see ODTUG grow and spread this community feeling even more! 
My experience as an attendee, presenter and content lead has provided the basic foundation to be a director. Next to that, my personality and (global) network will be beneficial to the whole board and organization. 
Since March I have served on the Board of Directors in a limited term for a Director who stepped down due to a career change. This has allowed me to have unique insight of all the things that are going on in and around the ODTUG organization. As the train was already ro…
