Today, while i was helping Dubai Police to go live with their new Oracle Forms10g application, we came across a problem when displaying Arabic enabled forms.
Oracle forms typically initializes and launches an applet within a regular IE browser page.
The form we were working on is large in size and its problem is that when it is first displayed, it truncates the right margin of the form (actually the applet is truncated). Since Arabic is Right to Left l oriented language, truncating the right margin means losing the leading and important parts of the labels and field. Of course, the user can still use the scroll bars and view the hidden parts of the screen, but it was becoming more and more inconnveneint for the users.
To fix such problem, one needs to incorporate an HTML tag that switches the browser to Right to Left (RTL) mode.
The tag is
HTML DIR= RTL
the above should be placed within tag sign <>
The question remains where to locate this tag.
Find your formsweb.cfg configuration file
baseHTMLjinitiator variable to locate that base HTML page that embeds the Java Applet. for example the default setting is
then open the basejini.htm file
and add the tag
