Is there a way to determine the date my PowerBuilder application was last compiled?
I would like to be able to determine, from within a PB application (using PB
10.5), if the application has been deployed since the last time a user ran
it. In other words, is there a way to programmatically determine the date
and or timestamp of the last compile?
Add this instance variable to an object:
DateTime idt_compiled = DateTime(Today(), Now())
The compiled version of the object in the library will contain the datetime
the object was compiled.

If the datawindow column type is money and has dddw, I get error message
"Expression is invalid".
If I replace dot with comma in regional settings, I can solve the problem.
I am using Turkish Charset.
We also get the same error message when we apply a filter that has a dash
'-' in the expression (using setFilter()). We went back to 8050.

We are having an issue whereby, we are receiving a run-time error 39(error
accessing external object property). Unfortunately, it is somewhat erratic
and not very re-producible. It seems to be only happening with one of our
customers. Although, I have seen it once or twice on my development machine.
Therefore, I do not suspect environment. But I really don't know.
We have some defensive code that logically seems like it should work. This

Using PB 8.0.3 9704 on Win2K.
I have a DataWindowChild that came from a GetChild() call for a composite
datawindow. At runtime, I don't "know" what composite datawindow is the
parent of the child datawindow.
Any ideas on how to get this information?
I tried DataWindowChild.GetParent(). Compiles fine and "Help" says this
should work, but all I get is a null object reference.
Thanks in advance...
Is this a problem with a poorly designed function signature?
Succesfull GetChild call could ONLY have been done with having a reference

Can you do a Datawindow in VS 2005 without using
Datawindow.NET just by using common controls i.e DataGrid
What would you use the DataWindow for then? To retieve the datawindow
into a datastore and then attempt to use it to populate the DataGrid?

it sounds like you want no cake but you want to eat it...
