In migrating SERT from 4.2 to 5.0, there's a number of challenges that I'm facing. This has to do with the fact that I am also migrating a custom theme to the Universal Theme, as almost 100% of the application just worked if I chose to leave it alone. I didn't. More on that journey in a longer post later.
In any case, some of the IR filters that I have on by default can get a bit... ugly. Even in the Universal Theme:
I'm a huge fan of APEX's new Universal Theme, and have been working quite a bit with it. One of the coolest features is how easy it is to change the colors. You don't even need to be good at design - just click Theme Roller, and spin all the things!
However, as much as you change the colors, the look and feel still largely looks the same, since the base font is unchanged.
So let's change it up! More importantly, let's change it up without making any changes to the Universal Theme itself, so that when we upgrade to APEX 5.1, our changes will be preserved.
At the beginning of this year I wrote an article about "Custom CSV Export in APEX".
Now I want to extend the solution by an optional ZIP export.
You can not export several files at the same time with standard APEX features. For that you have to create a ZIP file including all the files you want to download.
If doesn't work for you in APEX 5 Interactive Reports then you will need to disable Fixed Headings (standard). Fixed headings splits the report into two tables and the function won't work.
