How to close the internet browser window after forms 11g is called

You will need to modify your main entry form procedure and place some javascript code to close the browser window.

1. Create a new html file i.e. “closeWindow.html”, under %ORACLE_HOME%\forms\java\ as below:

[html]<html>
<body onload=”closeWindow()”>
<script type=”text/javascript”>
function closeWindow() {
window.open(”,’_parent’,”);
window.close();
}
</script>
</body>
</html>[/html]

2. Modify the entry form’s POST-FORM Trigger

[sql]–Call the html file created
web.show_document(‘/forms/java/closeWindow.html’,’_self’);
EXIT_FORM(NO_VALIDATE)[/sql]

4. Add the following lines to your “formsweb.cfg” file under [your_cofiguration]
path = c:\Oracle\Middleware\user_projects\domains\<domain_name>\config\fmwconfig\servers\WLS_FORMS\applications\formsapp_11.1.1\config\formsweb.cfg

[text]<SCRIPT LANGUAGE=”JavaScript”>window.opener = top;</SCRIPT>
<HTMLbeforeForm=<SCRIPT LANGUAGE=”JavaScript”>window.opener = top;</SCRIPT>[/text]
