Link types

Links between Oracle Forms objects use the following types:

Link Type When is this type of link created?
Use (U) This type is generically used to describe an interaction between two objects.

For example:

  • between a Form Module and its Menu Module
Call (C) A link of this type is created from a (popup) menu item invoking a menu to the cascading (popup) menu.

For example:

  • Between a data block item and the sequence specified in its Initial Value property.
  • Between a Form Module and the Report Modules via Report Objects.
Inherit (I) A link of this type is created from an object created by subclassing to the source object. It is also created between an object and its property class and between a subclassed Module and its reference modules.
Match (X) This type of link indicates a link you have created using a Reference Pattern.
Rely On This type of link is created between a data block and the server objects used to construct it.
Access This type of link is created when there is a reference in the code to a data block item through host variable syntax (:block.item or :item).
Monitor This type of link is created between a data block relation and the data block.

Links between Oracle Reports objects use the following types:

Link Type When is this type of link created?
Rely On
  • from Oracle Report Data Link to child column
  • from parent column to Oracle Report Data Link
  • from group to query
  • from query to PL/SQL code (function, procedure, package)
  • from database column to query
