Session Summary for Attendees:  My philosophy is you should stay as close as possible to standard APEX components. But sometimes from an end-user perspective, it would make a lot more sense and be more user-friendly if the page looked a bit different.

In this session, I will demonstrate a few examples of custom pages and how you can create something yourself. We will see the use of a PL/SQL region, APEX items, AJAX callback (process), dynamic actions, some JavaScript, and CSS.

Still, we try to stay as close as possible to APEX, so it's easy to upgrade, but it will be totally different user experience and not just a report with a form.
