PowerBuilder Bugs: Using VB ActiveX control (OCX) in PowerBuilder 6.0
I'm going to write some VB ActiveX control (using Microsoft VB6.0 SP3)
to be used in PowerBuiler 6.5,
but I found that it's very easy to crash in PowerBuilder,
Here is the test case:
1) Create a very simple VB ActiveX control (only one button without any
script) in Visual Basic
2) Create a PB project to open a Main Window (w_1) with an ole object of
VB ActiveX control
3) Open another Window (w_2) with an ole object of VB ActiveX control
(can be same as previous or other control)
4) Click the OLE object in w_2 to make it get focus
5) Close w_2 -> it will crashed
If ...insert ActiveX
I want to use MSCOMM32.ocx in powerbuilder. First, run regsver32.exe to
registor it. Then, I use powerbuilder to insert object by OLE. But
messagebox show "ole file is failed, license file is required." I don't
know how to registor it. Help me!!!
assuming you are in the directory that the file resides in.

Is it possible to recompile an existing PowerBuilder 5 application as an
ActiveX or OCX component that can then be embedded into a Visual Basic
application. Basically I would like to reuse an existing PowerBuilder app
(or at least sections of it) as part of a new application developed within
VB so that it looks like and behaves like a single application.
See Application Techniques documentation for the topic "Runtime Automation

I am brutally frustrated. I am still using PB5.0.4 - I know there are
more updated versions. But I still shouldn't have the problems I am
experiencing. Why is it that Microsoft's Web ActiveX control shows up in
Excel's toolbox list of active x controls but it doesn't show up in my
PB toolbox? I am using Windows NT 4.0 SP4, I was told that a friend can
see the controls in Windows 95 of the same PB version. Its not just the
MS Web Control, I experienced this problem with Dart Communciations http
control also. Interestingly enough, the package which contain Dart's

...HELP NEEDED: OCX's created from JavaBeans (using ActiveX bridge) hang PowerBuilder 6.0
I recently downloaded PowerBuilder 6.0 Desktop for evaluation purposes.
I am trying to add an OCX created from a java bean using Sun's ActiveX
I can add the OCX ok... but when I attempt to save my application
afterwards PowerBuilder hangs. CPU goes full throttle.
I have tried all of the sample OCX's from the JAVA BDK. They all hang
The OCX's work fine in other containers, i.e. Word, Excel,
Has anyone else tried this ?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I�m looking for a component in which I can create a graph with two Y axes (2
The idea is to achieve something like excel does with one of its graph types
(the "lines in two axes" one) but I don�t want to use excel like an ole
object because its menu appears and this is an effect unwished for the
application I�m working in.
I hope to be clear regarding this issue and if somebody could help me I�d
really appreciate it !!!
Thanks in advance.

I have a window in which I have an .ocx - ole_name. When I do the
it works just fine.
However, when I put the .ocx on a user object (u_userobj) - separate from
the window - and call it from my window, it blows up. Here's my syntax from
within the window:
u_uo = create u_userobj
Any help would be appreciated.
Visual user objects are created using the OpenUserObject() method -- the
CREATE statement should only be used for non-visual objects.

I wonder what is the future of PB. I have just saw an
article which Jhon Chen (Sybase CEO) says the following:
According to Chen the company had become over-diversified,
lost sight of its core competencies. "A lot of our
businesses were very inefficient," he explains. "I was
asking, 'why are you doing this?' You know we had an SAP
consulting business - what for? We had a product that
competed with Microsoft Visual Basic - what for? I had to
get rid of some bits and pieces."
In my understanding, the only Sybase product that have
competed with VB is...
