When I showed the Inline Popup Region to my coworker Shakeeb, he said he wanted to put a media list in it and use it as a navigation menu. And I said why not just use a menu. This was all theoretical at that point because as far as I know no one had done […]
Note this is about a future release of APEX and the final release may differ from what I describe. Last month I gave two talks at the NL.OUG APEX World conference. The first was part of the APEX 18.1 new features presentation with Anthony and Shakeeb. There I showed an app that demonstrated new region […]
Note this is about a future release of APEX and the final release may differ from what I describe. This article will show how to add an Inline Popup region in APEX 18.1. It is similar to the existing Inline Dialog region. If you have not used an inline dialog before you can learn how […]
Note this is about a future release of APEX and the final release may differ from what I describe. You’ve read the announcements, you’ve seen the presentations, you signed up for the early adopter, and gave feedback and now you think there is nothing to do but sit back and wait for 18.1 to be […]
Note this is about a future release of APEX and the final release may differ from what I describe. This is the second article in my series about APEX 5.2 [Update: the release is renamed 18.1]. Yesterday’s topic was Interactive Grid and today’s is clipboard.

I will have some things about 5.2 EA to blog about soon. Download IG Cookbook […]
My daughter, Isabella, and I made twenty fidget spinners with wood and old skate bearings for Christmas presents. I tweeted the steps with pictures but here is a little more detail about how we turned old skate bearings into wood fidget spinners.
For no particular reason other than I feel like writing about it, I’ll now describe some minor functionality that crept into the APEX 5.1.1 patch release. Typically a patch release shouldn’t and doesn’t have any new functionality but sometimes there is no better way to fix a bug. This topic is for the advanced plug-in […]
Here is an update (revision 2) of the Interactive Grid Cookbook. You can download it here. This revision adds an example of reordering rows. This has been asked for on the APEX discussion forums. The example is a task list editing page. The example also shows a workaround for the “no data found” error that […]
[This app has been updated] At Kscope17 I gave a presentation called “APEX 5.1 Advanced Interactive Grid” that showcased many examples of whats possible with APEX Interactive Grids once you get into advanced customization. I didn’t show how the examples were implemented. I could go deep on one or two examples or show many and […]

You may have missed it because it is not listed in the release notes under new features and only mentioned cryptically, almost tangentially, in the release notes section “Compatibility Mode Changes in Mode 5.1”.
