The conditions in Oracle Apex applies to an object. An object as an item may represent a collection of value (ie a column value of a row). When you want to apply a condition only on this value (row), you cannot use the standard conditions feature.
For instance, n a report, you may want conditionally:
- to show/hide a column,
- change the color of a value that depends of the value of an other column (Cross Condition)
- … etc
The key concept in this technique is to manage the conditional part in a SQL statement (with a CASE WHEN statement for instance) and use the returned conditional value to format the output with CSS property applied to HTML.
Hiding a link
The link below will be shown only if the Status is 'Complete'.
Use an integer for your status in place of a text in production code, please
select case when status <> 'Complete' then 'none' else 'initial' end as display_link, case when status <> 'Complete' then id else null end as bop_id from myTable;
