How to share the datawindow to inner datawindow of nested datawindow.
dw_1 is normal datawindow dw_nes is nested datawindow, both are placed
dw_nes contain dw_child datawindow
i want to share dw_1 and dw_child.
I have tried the below code, getting error
It's the dot notation. You will need to dw_nes.GetChild("dw_child", ldwc)
where ldwc is a _local_ datawindowchild.

I have had to move a number of datawindows from Oracle 9i running on a
windows 2003 to Oracle 9i on AIX 4.3.3 (which is also on a private network,
and requires a VPN to connect to).
In the datawindow designer, I have also had to change the database interface
from O90 Oracle 9i to an ODBC datasource (because I was not able to
connect). In doing so, I have had to graphically re-create all the DW SQL
again because I get this error:

Can anyone tell me if the HTML Datawindow DTC provides an 'easy' way to make
columns sortable like you can in the Datawindow DTC?
To do this you can code the following:
This code could be tied to a drop down list box or a set of radio
buttons that contains the column names to be sorted.

Add direct setting and getting capability for the datawindow where clause.
This would have to be a string array in case of unions.
Return ONLY the where clause(s) in the main select (in case of sub-selects,
ignore the where clause or somehow list it as a subselect in the where or a
subselect in the select).
It would be great if I could just get and set this as a value and have the
datawindow automatically change (or add) the where clause as specified.
This is for setting the where clause dynamically at run time. Currently
have to parse through the datawindow.table.select looking f...datawindow vs. embedded sql
I would like to update a table, but have found using
datawindows to be very slow especially when performing a lot
of dw_1.SetItem statements. Instead, I'm using embedded sql
insert statements for each row. Could someone please
explain the disadvantages of using embedded sql?
Embedded SQL is useful for several things.
What are you planning on doing with it?
If you put it in a loop and send one insert/update...
at a time to the server than wait for the reply and
then send the next one... Too slow... Also you will

In PB8, dw_cntl.object.DataWindow.Printer allowed you to direct Print
functions for the DW to a specific printer.
In PB9, dw_cntl.object.DataWindow.Print.PrinterName is supposed to provide
that capability, but dw_cntl.object.DataWindow.Printer still exists.
What is the difference? When should each property be used?
The only thing I can see is that possible the DataWindow.Printer is still here
for backwards compatibility.... It seems that the .printer only affects setting
the printer for that datawindow and does not change it for the PB or System

Difference between Datawindow and datawindowobjects?
- datawindow is a control on a userobject or a window
- datawindowobject (DWObject) is a control within a datawindow, defined in
the dataobject of the datawindow.
You refer to it as <datawindow-instance>.Object.<datawindow object>

I want to create a datawindow whose only data is three columns that will
themselves be drop-down data windows. These child datawindows will be
populated in PB script with dw_1.GetChild(). When I create that parent

dialog box ("Which datasource would you like to use?") External?
That depends on how you want to populate and use the columns of the main DW.
The DDDW is an edit style that assists the user in selecting a value for the
column in the main DW. If you want to retrieve the values ...DataWindow Within DataWindow
How Can I access/modify object/control from a Datawindow within Datawindow.
When i access/modify object/control from a Datawindow i used
dw_1.modify("name.text = 'new val'") but within another datawindow or child
datawindow it doesnt work.
Your description is difficult to understand due to the terminology. First,
a datawindow is assigned to a control - either a datawindow control or a
datastore. Second, the Modify function can only be called within a script.
With that as a basis, can you rephrase the question and describe more
precisely what you want to do? ...
