APEX Plugin CLOB Load

Plugin for displaying and saving CLOB content in a form.

Event based architecture that writes the contents of a CLOB to a collection that can then be used to write to any custom location needed.

This is a modification of the previously released Enkitec CLOB Load Plugin enabled for use with APEX 5.X.X

Short Description

When using a Text Area or Rich Text Editor, you can save larger amounts of data to a CLOB table column by adding the following events:

  • Before Page Submit: Takes the contents of the CLOB and writes it to a collection. Feature parameters in the plugin make this simple

  • Page Process: Moves the content to the edited record

  • Page Load Dynamic Action: When viewing a record, pulls the full content of the CLOB from the table and assigns it to a page item

The included application is a working basic example of plugin.



  • Plugin Only
