Drop down datawindow within datawindow
I have a datawindow that is attached to a PL/SQL stored
procedure that is supposed to list records. Several of the
fields in the list are identified as Style DropDownDW. The
intent is that for these fields there will be multiple
values available by using a vertical scroll bar and arrow.
For example, a record in the window might have

Medical code would also be a drop down list box with

How Can I access/modify object/control from a Datawindow within Datawindow.
When i access/modify object/control from a Datawindow i used
dw_1.modify("name.text = 'new val'") but within another datawindow or child
datawindow it doesnt work.
Your description is difficult to understand due to the terminology. First,
a datawindow is assigned to a control - either a datawindow control or a
datastore. Second, the Modify function can only be called within a script.
With that as a basis, can you rephrase the question and describe more
precisely what you want to do? ...datawindows in composite datawindow used in datawindow.NET, are not sliding up

We recently moved from version 8.0.3 9704 to 8.0.3 9977.
Since this move we have had nothing but grief with
DropDownDatawindow style columns.
Basically - we have columns that are dropdowns that the user
can enter their values into or, scroll down and select from.
We then have code that verifies that the value entered in
the column exists in the drop down list (i.e. is the data
entered by the user valid).
When we get the value from the column (using either dot
notation or, getitem functions) PB is giving us the display
value for the drop down NOT the code value.

Below is a sample of the format for a report I need to
create. The report will display courses that may or may not
be part of group, because the people running the courses can
choose from all the courses available to create their own
"group" of courses. Since a course may or may not be part
of a group would using an embedded datawindow for the group
info work? How? Can anyone point me in the right
direction? The data is coming from two tables.

Add direct setting and getting capability for the datawindow where clause.
This would have to be a string array in case of unions.
Return ONLY the where clause(s) in the main select (in case of sub-selects,
ignore the where clause or somehow list it as a subselect in the where or a
subselect in the select).
It would be great if I could just get and set this as a value and have the
datawindow automatically change (or add) the where clause as specified.
This is for setting the where clause dynamically at run time. Currently

Difference between Datawindow and datawindowobjects?
- datawindow is a control on a userobject or a window
- datawindowobject (DWObject) is a control within a datawindow, defined in
the dataobject of the datawindow.
You refer to it as <datawindow-instance>.Object.<datawindow object>

That depends on how you want to populate and use the columns of the main DW.
The DDDW is an edit style that assists the user in selecting a value for the
column in the main DW. If you want to retrieve the values ...Converting datawindow objects to datawindow .Net

I'm lost. There's no conversion necessary. PB and DW.Net use the
same datawindow objects.

DataWindow .Net 2.5.
Can you please explaing the way to convert/migrate PB Datawindows to
DataWindow .Net 2.5.
Advanced thanks for your suggesstions.
Start the Datawindow Designer applet and create a new Project.
Then use the Import... feature to import the datawindow source .SRD files.
These can be exported from PowerBuilder.
