5.19 PLVmsg: Message Handling

The PLVmsg (PL/Vision MeSsaGe) package consolidates various kinds of message text in a single PL/SQL -based repository. See Chapter 9, PLVmsg: Single-Sourcing PL/SQL Message Text for details.

5.19.1 Restricting use of text

PROCEDURE restrict;

Restricts text for Oracle error numbers to be retrieved from a call to SQLERRM (the default).

PROCEDURE norestrict;

Directs PLVmsg to retrieve message text only from the PL/SQL table.

FUNCTION restricting RETURN BOOLEAN;

Describes current state of restrict toggle: TRUE if restricting text to SQLERRM, FALSE otherwise.

5.19.2 Managing and accessing message text

FUNCTION text (num_in IN INTEGER := SQLCODE) RETURN VARCHAR2;

Returns the text stored in the PL/SQL table of the PLVmsg package for the specified row number.

PROCEDURE add_text (num_in IN INTEGER, text_in IN VARCHAR2);

Adds text to the PL/SQL table of the PLVmsg package at the specified row number.

PROCEDURE load_from_dbms
(table_in IN VARCHAR2,
where_clause_in IN VARCHAR2 := NULL,
code_col_in IN VARCHAR2 := 'error_code',
text_col_in IN VARCHAR2 := 'error_text');

Loads the PL/SQL table of the PLVmsg package from the specified table using DBMS_SQL. You can specify the table name, optional WHERE clause, and even the names of the columns.

FUNCTION min_row RETURN BINARY_INTEGER;

Returns the lowest row number in use by the PLVmsg PL/SQL table. This is necessary for PL/SQL tables in PL/SQL Releases 2.2 and below.

FUNCTION max_row RETURN BINARY_INTEGER;

Returns the highest row number in use by the PLVmsg PL/SQL table. This is necessary for PL/SQL tables in PL/SQL Releases 2.2 and below.
