Printing DataWindow in text format (DOS format) on W2K env.
I�d like to print a DataWindow report in text format (DOS format) on Windows
2000 environment. In Win9x environment I usually printed my report in dot-matrix
printer. It worked pretty well, but when I changed the whole environment (Win9x
to Win2K) I got this problem (I send my report to be printed in a dot-matrix
printer and I got no answer by the printer). Does anyone know how to fix it?
Does anyone had this problem before? I'm using PB 7.03 build 10047.

My client wants to send out "email bills" to his customers. In his proposed
email bill format, he has a bar-chart graph (no problem) and he wants to include
a section where he can send out informational messages in "formatted" text (i.e.
anything other than plain text). I've searched and tried numerous ways to try
to embed formatted text into his "datawindow email bill", but the only solution
I came up with (which is really ugly...) is to have him create the text in Word,
take a screen print, then crop it. I just can't find any other way to

I have several reports available as composite datawindows, which I want to
export to an ASCII or RTF format file. Another format is no option.
What possibilities do I have to make this possible ?
Write the routine yourself. SaveAs only does PSR for composite reports.

This may be simple but I cannot remember how to place four varchar(1024)
fields on a datawindow and make them narrow and deep and allow the text
to word wrap within each of the columns. I need to place all four on a
8.5 " width paper.
set this column autohorizontalscroll property off and autoverticalscroll
property on. and autoresize property on.

Our customer needs to paint some words in the address field off customers
in the datawindow.
For example if they live in a spesific street down st for example
the rows that have down st in their address columns will be modified and
down st will be highlighted.
my simple trial fails.
dw_1.SetItem(3, "address",String("sik cad"," [red]@-@@@@@@"))
If you want the text in a single area to have different formatting,
you need to look at using RTF rather that regular edit controls.

The PB examples saves it in PSR format, but how many email recipients will
have Infomaker with which to read it?
Does anybody have a way to do this?
Have a look at the DataWindow plug-in... it uses your default browser to
display PSR files. It works pretty well and is easy to set up. You can
download it from: https://support.sybase....DataWindow This, DataWindow That...

I want to set an edit for one of my columns in a DW. I do not want to make

a edit of color change, date format, etc. What I want to do is display the
word "no edit needed" if a serial number (varchar) ends in 'rnd'. Does
anyone know how to write that in the DW format? I see some examples but
they are very generic for strings.
would it be something like @@@@@@@@@@rnd "no edit needed"; ??????????????
can I also say if last 3 char = rnd write 'no ed...'

You can share the DW data with a RTF control. In the RTF control (vs the
DWO) you can save the RTF data present as a Blob column in your database.
Then just re-retrieve the Blob RTF text and paste it (look at the PasteRTF
method) back in your DWO or RTF control as required.

...Rich Text Formatting / Text Formatting Toolbar
Is there a default control in ASP.NET or in VS .NET in general that I can use to help edit textboxes and have a formatting toolbar at the top similar to the microsoft word formatting toolbar (lets you make fonts bold, select font size, font type, etc. -- basic formatting stuff and maybe insert pictures/attach files to the text box).
If you reply to this message, you'll see what i'm talking about at the top of the reply box.
There isn't a default one in asp.net.
The one used here is called FreeTextBox.
It's a free custom control that you can download. I don't think it comes with emotico...Format in Datawindow
