PowerBuilder 6 changes printed datawindow font

We recently migrated an application from PowerBuilder 5 to PowerBuilder 6. 
One of the datawindows has fields using the Microsoft Sans Serif 8 font. 
When printed, the font is different on two of the same HP printers.  Both
of the printers printed exactly the same way when the application was in
PowerBuilder 5.  Also, the verticle field spacing has changed from
PowerBuilder 5 to PowerBuilder 6.  Has anybody had these results?  Does the
6.0.01 patch (currently in beta) fix this?

A change to the way PBU's are calculated was made to PB6. The end result is
that PB6 may not function exactly like PB5 when calculating fonts though it
should. I know similar issues have been called into tech support but I don't
know if 6.0.01 fixes them.

I recommend calling it in.

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 printer setting? History: 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. In 65Maint.txt document it says the following: "DataWindow Scrollbar Operation ------------------...

Powerbuilder datawindow
Hi! I'm importing a some data into my application. The way I do this is to insert a the rows into a datawindow and then do an update() on the datawindow. If a row in the database allready exists with the same primary key as I have inserted into the datawindow, what will happen then? Will then datawindow do an update or will I get an error? I'm doing this on a datastore object. How can I get an errormessage from the datastore? I have tried the errormessages and codes from the transaction object (sqlca.sqlerrtext and sqlca.sqlcode).

PowerBuilder 6.5 datawindow causes crash
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? By "hide" do you mean se...
