Moving columns in Grid Datawindows using datawindow painter -PB 8
I know - Evita - AGAIN???? :-)
This is for my teammate who's going crazy. He has a grid datawindow of 4
columns and wants to move say column 4 between current columns 1 and 2 but
whatever he does WON"T let him slide it over. Is there some setting he
needs to set someplace or is he stuck?

I'm not meaning when it's running...In design we need the column moved over
from where it was (column 4) to where it needs to be (between current
columns 1 and 2)

We experience the following problem:
In our app we can move columns around in grid datawindows. After having
created at runtime a line object in the header this suddenly is no longer
possible. Explicitly setting the Datawindow.Grid.ColumnMove property doesn't
help. After deleting the line at runtime it works again.
If I would create the line at design time everything works fine at runtime.
Anybody any idea?

Forget ...Datawindow Grid and Column Move
My datawindows are Grid type, the property "MouseSelection", on the first
tabpage, is unchecked. It's posible resize the columns without that
To resize a column in a grid DW is necessary that the grid is displayed and
the header's height is > 0

I am using grid datawindow in my application. After retrieving data i am
moving (changing the display order) the columns. That's working fine.
If i retrieve the data again column display order goes back to original, is
there any i can keep column display order as i changed.
could you please help me in this regard
thanks in advance
Re-retrieving the data won't reset the column order. But reassigning
the dataobject or closing and reopening the window would. Unless
you're using something like the PFC preferences service, there's

Can you remove the white space at the end of a grid, it seems to appear when
we set columnwidths to '0'..
I've not seen that. What version of PB are you using? What platform?

Does anyone now if there is an event that can be mapped on a datawindow
control that fires when a column is moved on a grid datawindow?
IIRC, there's not. You'll have to use the events associated with the mouse
buttons. It's been discussed before; a thorough search at

...prevent resize columns in grid datawindow
here's my question:
I have grid style dw with some columns in it that should not participate
column resize feature of the grid style dw. Because those columns
contain bitmap expressions they should
not resize. Otherwise the bitmap being displayed resizes too. That's not
what I want.
For the columns containing text data resizing should be valid.
Formerly I used a list view control, but the listview can only handle
display one picture column.
That's why I used a dw. But column resizing must be generally available
except those columns who contai...Preventing the Column of Grid Datawindow from Highlighting
I noticed that if user clicks on a column on the Grid
datawindow, the entire columns are highlighted (background
being black). Is there any way to avoid the highlighting?
Any suggestion will be greately appreciated.

Is it possible to capture an event when a user has changed the column order
in a grid datawindow?
Since I posted the question, I will show what I figured out:
I compared the value of <DW Control
Name>.Object.DataWindow.Table.GridColumns at the time of the clicked event
and then after (not during) a lbuttonup event. If they are different then
the column order has been changed.

I have a grid datawindow and have made the first column (which happens to
be the unique key that is auto-populated) not visible and I use a picture
rowfocusindicator over it. So it acts as a placeholder really to force the
first visible column to appear to the right of the rowfocusindicator. Well,
I have discovered in PB8 that when I save the datawindow, PB moves the
invisible column to the end of the detail band. This was not the behavior
How can I force this column to stay where I have intended? I have "column
Thank...Event for column move/resize in grid datawindow
It would be very very helpful if an event on the datawindow control would
fire when a column in a grid datawindow was moved or resized by the user.
Like a ColumnResizing event with dwo, row, oldHeight, oldWidth, newHeight,
newWidth parms. Of course in a grid you would have a null dwo if it was
just a pure vertical resize and row would be null if it was a pure
horizontal resize as all columns or rows, respectively, would get the
effect. I'd go for that. I bet it would be a pretty easy thing for Sybase
to implement as well.
