Last year on ODTUG I did a presentation where I showed my own implementation of region tabs. These are extra buttons to display regions in a more user friendly way. Suppose you have a lot of regions on your page then you could present a list of buttons, each button will show/hide a region.
I’m pleased to announce that in ApEx 4.0 you can do this declarative by using a new region type: “Region Display Selector”.
To set it up just follow these simple steps:
- First alter any existing region on your page and set the Region Display Selector to YES. You can find this setting under Region Attributes.
- Make a new region of type Region Display Selector
- You can add more regions to the display selector by setting the Region Display Selector to YES
