Convert datawindow to XML in Powerbuilder 7
how do I convert my datawindow to xml file? I am using powerbuilder 7.
You have two choices:
1. By hand. Loop through the rows and columns and parse the XML
2. Upgrade to PB9, which was when XML export was introduced as a

I guess I can't upgarde my pb7 to pb9 since all of our applications
are already running in pb7. Upgarding might cause a lot of problems
Can you do a Datawindow in VS 2005 without using
Datawindow.NET just by using common controls i.e DataGrid
What would you use the DataWindow for then? To retieve the datawindow
into a datastore and then attempt to use it to populate the DataGrid?
I've heard of people who want to have their cake and eat it too, but
it sounds like you want no cake but you want to eat it...

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
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).

Is this a SQL Anywhere question?
If not, you have posted to the wrong forum.
If yes,...XML and PowerBuilder

...Use PowerBuilder DLL in PowerBuilder
We use PB6.5.
We would want to use a DLL create from PB in a PB application.
We compiled an a PBL as DLL.
After we tried to use DLL in a user object external, but without success.
How can we do to use DLL create from PB or use in a new PB application some
object (visual and no) before compiled with PB?
Any help will be appreciated.
When you create a DLL from a PB library it is not really a standard Windows
DLL. I'm not sure what the difference is. If you are making calls from PB
then just use the standard PB calling syntax the ...PowerBuilder with XML
I suggest that PowerBuilder support XML.If PowerBuilder have XML function
or component,it will be much better than Delphi!
I agree. With the database world increasingly dominated by XML, I find that
searching the (beta) help files for PB8 there is not a single mention of
XML, like this has passed by the folk at Sybase. What we need, at the
very least, is a datawindow to output XML and accepts XML as input. I guess
we will have to wait for PB9 now

If you're object (or any related object) failed to migrate

you'll have to Edit Source to modify it.
If you're migrating, a glance through my Migration Guide (see below)

Our company is going to upgrade PowerBuilder. Currently we are using version
7, and we are going to upgrade either to version 9 or 10.
Does anyone have any recommendations if we should go for version 9 or 10?
What is the current release of version 10, and is it stable or is there a
lot of bugs?
If you have any hope of running the applications in the future on XP, W2003
or soon to be W2006 (LongHorn) you will have to jump over to UniCode - ie
PB10. So personally, I would recommend starting with P...How PowerBuilder interacts with XML?
As far as I know, PowerBuilder is not directly supporting XML but, is there
any way how we can interact PB with XML.
Thanks for the help.
What exactly is it that you need to do? Parse XML? Generate XML from
back-end data? What kind of application is this? A fat client, a distributed
client, a Jauar client?
You have a few options, depending on the above:
1. Use a COM or C++-based XML parser, like MSXML (Microsoft) or Xerces
2. If you are using an application server (Jaguar for example) you can use a
Java component that does the parsing for you and returns results...XML Parser for PowerBuilder?
Anybody know if there is such a thing.
I would search the internet for an OCX that can do this. You can use OCXs in

i'm looking into evaluating powerbuilder and was just wondering if
powerbuilder has a COM/CORBA interface. In addition, will powerbuilder
accept incoming XML streams?
PowerBuilder can generate COM components, although they are actually
Com-Wrappered PB components. The CORBA interface hooks into Sybase
EAServer, and there's limited access to other CORBA servers. PB cannot
accept XML streams natively, but you can implement the MSXML interface
without a great deal of difficulty.
What's your goal in your evaluation and what are you comparing to?
