When I do a setFullState on a Java datawindow, using a state generated by a

a few months ago, and was told that this would be addressed by an EBF
available shortly after the EA Studio general release. Can anyone give me a

I'm having an issue with itemchanged event and dropdown datadawindow
columns in PB 7. I have written some business logic in itemchanged event.
When the user drops down the dropdown dw column using keyboard (Alt-down
arrow) and navigate it using the arrow keys, it causes itemchanged event to
fire every time a selection changes which creates problems for my code in
itemchanged because at this time user is just navigating to choose the

I've got a simple datawindow that has a datetime field that has the
drop-down calendar option enabled. This is used on a window in a web forms
application. I thought it was working wonderfully and had even deployed it
in our organization. I recently was notified that the calendar was
displaying oddly. It seems that this user has the larger DPI setting
selected in his video options. The calendar displays with much of it cut
off and no scroll is enabled. I have not been able to find anything to
affect this behaviour. I have tried the IE and RAD web controls to no

When we send a datawindow object containing 1 row and a dddw containing 5
rows to another datawindow control via get/setfullstate, the number of rows
in the dddw is doubled to 10.
Populating the (main) datawindow happened via an insertrow(), which caused
the dddw to be retrieved automatically.
Has anyone experienced the same behaviour?
I saw this behavior when I had 2 different columns that used the same
datawindow object for dropdowns. The workaround I used was to create a 2nd
version of of the dddw dataobject, so that each column had a uniqu...How to share the datawindow to inner datawindow of nested datawindow

Is it possible to modify the contents of a Drop Down Datawindow on a HTML

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 ...
