Using PB v9.0.1 Build 7171
I'd need to access data available on a web server. Therefore, I have a name
and password to log-in, in return I would get a key which can then be used
to access data which is returned through XML.
The information is also accessible through a web browser if there's no
external application but I would like to make it available through my

I am using PB 10.2 enterprise and the post and get url both
work in the development environment. When I try to run the
deployed app on my development machine the post url gives a
-6 error and the get url has a -1 error. I can run the
deployed app on other machines without any error, but on
other machines I also get the errors.
My development machine is Win XP SP2. There must be a
problem with the deployed app on the development machine not
seeing a DLL or OCX , but I do not know which one.
Does anyone know what is going on and how to resolve this?

I am using Powerbuilder 9.0.3. I am trying to post an XML string with the

in the following string, the method hangs. Can someone tell me why?

I'm having the same trouble. The documentation seems to imply that the
result gets put into the ir_msgbox after the async call is complete. But

I am using PB7 Build 8033 and Excel 97 SR1
I have a spreadsheet which has 1 chart "graph", and 2 sheets "Model" and
"Calculations". There are also 7 macros in module 1.
I am trying to use OLE Automation to link to the spreadsheet, I need to
populate some cells, run some macros and retreive some cells.
I can get excel and the spreadsheet to open in automation mode, I can
retreive and populate individual cell value, and I can successfully close
and disconnect from excel and the spreadsheet.
My problem is that I cannot successfully access the macros. The code below
is what I am using. When the spreadsheet is run on its own, the macros work
fine, all the calculations are ok. No problems at all. When I try to use
automation, the macros are accessed and errors occur. The errors are type
mismatch when trying to collect a date into a variable. ( all var decs ok
and spreadsheet values are of correct format.) In debug mode on this line
error 2026 was noted.
I am using the workbooks.open method , (it works the same with
workbooks.add) as seen below, I was wondering if i need to open other sheets
or modules somehow, or do I need to open the spreadsheet using other
If I open the spreadsheet using Run( "excel.exe" "c:\test.xls") and then

Given IE7's early beta status, and Sybase's policy of not supporting
Microsoft beta platforms, I would not expect this to be acknowledged or
addressed anytime soon.
...Proxy Settings and PostURL and GetURL
I have written an application that will be sent out to a variety of
clients across the intenet. Some may have proxy servers and some may
not. I am using the following code. Does anyone think I will have a
problem with proxy servers? If so, what can I do about it. I don't
really want to change the application to use Window's internet API.
integer li_ret, li_port, li_result
li_ret = this.GetContextService("Internet", inet_base)
iresult = create n_cst_internet_result
I am using the PostURL, GetURL functions of Inet in PB 8.0.
I seem to be unable to get more than approximately 6,414 bytes.
Is there a known limit to the size of the text string that can be gotten
from website? Have I done something wrong that is causing the limit? Is it
bug in Powerbuilder?

How about improving on the Modify Expression Editor a bit? We have some
quite complicated expressions, and the tiny little MLE control that PB uses
to allow us to edit expression is very clumsy (and yes, I do realize about
the elipse to bring up the modal Modify Expression window - which contains
an only slight less tiny MLE for editing the Expression).
Not to mention that embedded Returns in the expression can cause the
computed field to behave funny.
How about a real editor, complete with color markups, support for
indentation and carrage returns, AutoScript even!

Thanks in advance.

Firstly, I am unable to guess the business requirement for this. Instead lemme
answer your question:
To get the current column reference with the datawindow name, use :
Use GetFocus() in combination with IsValid to get the name of the datawindow
that has the focus. Use this in combination with the GetcolumnName() function
to get the columnname.
Use a series of GetParent() functions combined with TypeOf to obtain
references to the parent chain. This iterative process will end when the
TypeOf() returns Window!.
Build all this into a string or as a powerobject (in this case you should omit
the current column name and store it seperately)
Hope this helps
Regarding a better reference for PFC, search in Amazon.com for PFC or
PowerBuilder. You could also look at PFC guide: http://www.pfcguide.com or the
