How to open Oracle Forms URL and then hide its IE started window

You need to open an Oracle Forms 11g url, which in turn will open a new IE window -but you want to somehow get rid of the first IE window.

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

<script type=”text/javascript”> (“”,”mywindow”,”height=1,width=1,toolbar=no,statusbar=no,scrollbars=no,top=5000″);”,’_parent’,”);

Note: top = 5000 sets the window top position at +5000, which places it outside a typical windows screen size.

2. Open an IE window and enter the following URL into the address


3. Your Oracle Forms should fire and start working.
