Forms won't allow me to use restricted built-in's. What should I do?

How to get around the "can't use a restricted built-in in built-in XXX" message:

1. Create a TIMER at the point where you want the navigation to occur. Eg.

create_timer('TIMER_X', 5, NO_REPEAT);

2. Code a WHEN-TIMER-EXPIRED trigger to handle the navigation

DECLARE
tm_name VARCHAR2(20);
BEGIN
tm_name := Get_Application_Property(TIMER_NAME);
IF tm_name = 'TIMER_X' THEN
Go_Item('ITEM_X');
END IF;
END;
