DataWindow.Print.Orientation in PowerBuilder 6.0
Can anybody suggest how to print multiple DWs in one job using (or
dynamically changing) the DWs' Print.Orientation setting regardless of
When use PrintDataWindow(), DW prints according to the printer setup
(either landscape or portrait). [When use Print(), the DataWindow
'Print.Orientation' property overwrites printer setup.] In my case the
DataWindow 'Print.Orientation' property is set to Landscape. PrintSetup()
works fine. Nevertheless, since it's to complicated for my users, I have to
find a simpler way (preferably automated). Mo...Printing a Datawindow in PowerBuilder
I have some problems properly printing a datawindow in PowerBuilder. When I
print a document the printer will print the top half of the ast line on the
third and bottom half of the line on the fourt page.
In my datawindow I only have aboout four fields but the last one is a SQL
Server "TEXT" field, so this field can store many pages of information.
In the PowerBuilder Data Window I have the field set to auto size height.
Another thing I have noticed that it prints differently on different
computers, meaning it may print fine on one computer and not on another.
S...Problems With datawindow scrolling in PowerBuilder 6.5 (and 6.0)
The datawindow scrolling functionality has been altered so that when
scrolling through a datawindow using the thumb, it is possible to view the
bottom of one page and the top of the next. This looks OK until a group is
created in the datawindow that has its own heading. When scrolling as
before, the heading remains in between the bottom of one page and the top of
the next which doesn't look particularly attractive, especially if there are
several items in the group heading.

Please guide me for the following problem encountered by me for the
composite datawindow object in PB6.0
I created a composite datawindow(d_main) using 4 datawindow objects. In

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?
I've heard of people who want to have their cake and eat it too, but
it sounds like you want no cake but you want to eat it...

I need help figuring out how to fix a datawindow that keeps
crashing. This is in Power Builder version 6.5.1 retrieving
data from a SQL database using a stored procedure. The
datawindow has the detail hidden and several summary fields
in the headers, main, group 2, and group 1. I have found
that if I don't hide the detail records the datawindow
doesn't cause a crash. I have applied the maintenance patch
for this version.
If my rusty memory serves, build 1299 of 6.5.1 was quite stable.
Can you be specific about the symptoms of the crash?
