Preview

Now there are 3 ways to create custom Add, Edit, Save, and Delete buttons for an Interactive Grid in Oracle APEX and all these buttons will execute the JavaScript code to perform Add, Edit, Save, and Delete row functions.

But the question is that why we should create custom buttons when we have the default buttons enabled for an Interactive Grid in Oracle APEX? We never know what kind of a requirement can come from the client for customization and then we have to create custom button to take more control over it, To create this custom button follow these below steps:

Solution: 1

  • Create interactive grid using following query and set Static ID “ontoor” to the Interactive Grid Region:
select ROWID,
       EMPNO,
       ENAME,
       JOB,
        DEPTNO       
  from EMP
 where 1=2
  • Copy and paste following jquery to region attributes in JavaScript Initialization Code: Preview
function(config) {
    let $ = apex.jQuery,
        toolbarData = $.apex.interactiveGrid.copyDefaultToolbar(),
        toolbarGroup = toolbarData.toolbarFind("actions3");
        addrowAction = toolbarData.toolbarFind("selection-add-row"),
        saveAction = toolbarData.toolbarFind("save"),
        editAction = toolbarData.toolbarFind("edit");     

    addrowAction.label = "Aditional Row"; // lebel Name
    addrowAction.icon = "icon-ig-add-row"; // icon added
    addrowAction.iconBeforeLabel = true;
    addrowAction.hot = true;

    saveAction.label = "Save";
    saveAction.iconBeforeLabel = true;
    saveAction.icon = "icon-ig-save-as";
    saveAction.id = "get"; // button id
    saveAction.hot = true;

    editAction.label = "Edit";
    editAction.iconBeforeLabel = true;
    //editAction.icon ="icon-ig-edit-as";
    editAction.id = "edit";
    editAction.hot = true;

 toolbarGroup.controls.push({
 	type: "BUTTON",
    action: "selection-delete",
    icon: "icon-ig-delete",      // alternative FontAwesome icon: "fa fa-trash",
    iconBeforeLabel: true,
    hot: true
});


    config.toolbarData = toolbarData;
    return config;
}

    toolbarGroup = toolbarData.toolbarFind("actions3");

toolbarGroup.controls.push({
                type: "BUTTON",
                action: "selection-delete",
                icon: "icon-ig-delete",     // alternative FontAwesome icon: "fa fa-trash",
                iconBeforeLabel: true,
                hot: true
                 });

						type: "BUTTON",
						action: "selection-add-row",
						label :"Add rows",
						icon: "icon-ig-add-row",  // FontAwesome icon: "icon-ig-add-row",
