To create a web menu or Customize an existing one.

Web menus and procedures control the look and feel and security settings for all of the HTML pages generated from the database. The main content of each page comes from one of two places. It is either generated from a stored database procedure (PL/SQL) or from a menu-generating procedure that builds a menu from the menu items table (TWGRMENU). You can create new web menus and procedures or modify existing ones.

To create a web menu or procedure or customize an existing one:

  1. Select the set of menu items you want to customize from the pull-down list box.
  2. Select Submit Changes to save the information you entered or Select Reset All Fields to reset the information to the last saved version.

To delete a web menu or procedure:

Field Descriptions

Required Field Description
* Page Name Enter the PL/SQL package.procedure name for the web menu or procedure. Entry to this field is case sensitive. Do not use spaces.
