Run PB application from any another application
is it possible to execute and pass a value to a Powerbuilder
application from any other application ?
any input is greatly appreciated.
If the other application has the ability to start applications. To pass a
value, you can add command line arguments to your run script, look at
commandparm() function in PB for getting those values. You can also use the
windows SendMessage API call to trigger events on windows/application.

My applications with out SQLCA run great through Powerbuilder WDK, my
applications that contain SQLCA information doesn't. When I run the
application in PB I get a splash screen and then the application starts.
When I run it through PB WDK the splash screen starts and the I get a login
box. No matter what I do it always show's up and when I hit OK I get the
following SQLSTATE = 08001 error. How can I stop this from occurring? The
SQLCA code and ini file are below.
startupfile = "pds.ini"
/* Populate sqlca from current PB.INI settings */

You can trigger user events mapped to pbm_custom01-pbm_custom75 by using the
SendMessage Win32 API using message IDs between 1024 and 1098, respectively.
You will need to use the FindWindow API to get the handle of the main window
of the application you want to "talk" to.

How can I run another application from PB script and continue its
execution after finish this application (NOT immediately after start) ?
Thanks, Radko Najman
Look at the CreateProcess() Win32 API -- it allows for this type of
functionality. There are a number of posts titled "Run Command" in this forums
that mention that.

* Is there another way to open the windows that belongs to different application (executables/DLLs) other than executing a DDE call from a calling executable (by having the launch pad executable serve as the "client" and the executable of the different applications being the "server" to establish the DDE communication so that windows that is contained within the executable's DLLs would be opened) ?

I need to have 2 powerbuilder application be able to communicate with one
another. A string is all I need to pass between the two applications.
I tried creating a com object that I could connect to from both
applications. This com object would basically store the information I want
to pass between the two applications in an instance variable. One
application would populate that instance variable, then notify the other
application(through the send command) to go read the information in the com
I created the com object fine and can call a function on the com object

I have a dumb question even though I know the answer. I was
asked to post this anyway. Our client wants to avoid
installing Oracle client on every client machine. Instead,
they asked if a copy of the PB application can be put onto a
network drive and all clients have a shortcut pointing to
the exe on this server and use the ODBC connection the
server has? Is this possible?
The oracle client (Net8 or SQLNet) will still have to be loaded on each
workstation unless you are using Citrix, PCAnywhere, etc., that allows you
to work directly on the server.

Curious on what different solutions there are for one application that is closing down to contact another application.
I have the closing down applicaton sending something to the database and for the other application to monitor the database records, but I think that is a horrible solution.
Another idea would be when the closing down application sends a message to the database for the database to then respond by sending a message to the other application, but that means the database would have to know where the other application is.

I need to write function launches the application specified by
