FRITE Rich Item HTML editor allows you to edit and format HTML content and assign it to an Oracle Forms text item. FRITE has been designed specifically for Oracle Forms and has been tested with Oracle Forms 9i/10g running under:
- Internet Explorer 6+ (Windows)
- Firefox (Windows)
Why a rich text item for Oracle Forms
For a long time, actually from its inception, Forms has been seen as a business programming language with developers mainly concerned with processing and saving data.
With the advent of the Oracle Forms web architecture, developers could design form modules that could be seen as web styled especially if using the Oracle web look that comes standard with Forms.
However, rich item editing is still missing and that’s where Frite aims to position itself. With Frite, users can enjoy the rich editing that is available in other environments and still continue to work on one of the best business programming environments.
