Fires when a window is made the active window. This occurs at form startup and whenever a different window is given focus. Note that on some window managers, a window can be activated by, say, clicking on its title bar. This operation is independent of navigation to an item in the window. Thus, navigating to an item in a different window always activates that window, but window activation can also occur independently of navigation.

At form start-up, Oracle Forms navigates to the first navigable item in the first navigable block. A When-New-Form-Instance trigger fires after the successful completion of any navigational triggers that fire during the initial navigation sequence.

This trigger does not fire when control returns to a calling form from a called form.

In a multiple-form application, this trigger does not fire when focus changes from one form to another.
