There isn't such an event.
I guess you could code a timer event that checks it to the previous value.

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.

My datawindows are Grid type, the property "MouseSelection", on the first
tabpage, is unchecked. It's posible resize the columns without that
In PB 8.0, I can resize columns in a grid window with Mouse Selection
checked or unchecked.
Resizing columns doesn't require being able to select them. The icon for
selection and resize is different. Selection is the normal arrow and resize
is the vertical bar with 2 horizontal arrows, 1 to pointing to each side.

That's why I used a dw. But column resizing must be generally available

Thanks in advance
To stop the bitmap resizing, copy the width valueinto the expression for
Width. This will not stop you resizing the column, but will stop the bitmap
being resizied within it.

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
http://groups.google.com/advanced_group_search should give you the answers

It's possible that my cuestion sounds stupid, but is there a way in the
datawindow designer to define the column width in a grid datawindow
I can do it with the mouse and with edit source, but I don't found a
property to set the column width.
No - that's a "feature" of the grid datawindow. In the Preview pane, you
can grab and resize column widths (but you have to have gridlines ON)

I have a grid style datawindow sitting in a tabpage of a tab control.
The users would like to adjust the column widths sometimes. When the edge

but when the mouse is moved to a new width, the column only resizes a small
amount and the cursor turns into the dragdrop icon.

there some sort of problem within a tabpage?

You'll have to use a set of API to determine actual number of PBU needed to

in native PB code. I can give you code example if needed.

In previous versions of PB there was the ability in a grid
data window to resize a column. Also there was the ability
to hide a column by keeping the mouse clicked and pass to
other column but now in order to hide a column you must keep
the mouse clicked and go exactly to the begin of the column
which is very difficult. If you keep the mouse clicked and
pass to the previous column the column does not resize =96

current version is 9.0.1 build 7204.
Please give me an answer if this is a bug and if your
planning to fix it.

You'll need to use pbm_lbuttondown and pbm_dwnlbuttonup

In pbm_dwnlbuttonup, check whether PointerX() has changed (ie a column has
