Hi All,

Thanks in advance.

I have a stacked canvas with horizontal scroll bar enabled , as the canvas is long and windows allowed as per business is smaller than canvas.

Upon this stacked screen , there is another small stacked canvas that comes into view upon click of a button. The Smaller canvas X and Y are set in property to come into
view on previous stacked canvas.

The problem I am facing now is upon scrolling down the smaller canvas is not moving, Kindly help me out.

I have one more query following

In oracle forms 6i is there by any means in text item or display item can we make only a portion of text in bold format and other as normal.

Example: "This is sample text for the question."

It appears that you should modify stacked canvas' position as you scroll. How? Perhaps by calculating it, based on number of record that is on the top of viewable portion of the stacked canvas. Use one of :SYSTEM variables, e.g. :system.cursor_record or :system.trigger_record. You know record height, you know current position, multiply them and you'll know what value should that small stacked canvas' Y position be.

As of partial bold text: I don't think Forms is capable of doing that. Maybe, with a little help of Java Beans (which I know nothing about). Google for "Francois Degrelle"; he knows a lot about this stuff, maybe you'll find something useful.
