In this chapter we are going to learn how to create Items and we will see some items in the OAF page how they look.

We already seen in previous chapter that how many items are available and how to create a item.

Here we are going to see different types of items in OAF how they appear in the page.

Creating Message Text Input Item

The Message Text Input items allows users to enter some text value by the user. For example in mail id User Name, password we will find some text to enter and those kind of items here in OAF are called as Message Text Input items.

First create one project and create one page under the main region create one “Message Component Layout ” region.


Create two Message Text Input items under Message Component Layout Region and give prompt names to each item.

To make the item required one in the Property Inspector select showRequired and make to True so that the items become required field.


Now for the item if we want the text in disable mode like the way we usually see while entering Password the text appears in dots rather than displaying text. In OAF for that feature, select item and in Property Inspector select Security -> Secret.

By default it sets to False make it True.



Run the page and see the output, the below figure shows the output which shows the Message Text Input items what we created:


Run the page and see the output.
