Event for column move/resize in grid datawindow
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.

I know - Evita - AGAIN???? :-)
This is for my teammate who's going crazy. He has a grid datawindow of 4
columns and wants to move say column 4 between current columns 1 and 2 but
whatever he does WON"T let him slide it over. Is there some setting he
needs to set someplace or is he stuck?

I'm not meaning when it's running...In design we need the column moved over
from where it was (column 4) to where it needs to be (between current
columns 1 and 2)
<Victo...IF you set column to width 0 in a datawindow grid, the column appear as a with column at the end of the grid
Can you remove the white space at the end of a grid, it seems to appear when
we set columnwidths to '0'..
I've not seen that. What version of PB are you using? What platform?

Forget ...Column moving in a grid datawindow.
We experience the following problem:
In our app we can move columns around in grid datawindows. After having
created at runtime a line object in the header this suddenly is no longer
possible. Explicitly setting the Datawindow.Grid.ColumnMove property doesn't
help. After deleting the line at runtime it works again.
If I would create the line at design time everything works fine at runtime.
Anybody any idea?
...Column Moving in Grid Datawindow
I am using grid datawindow in my application. After retrieving data i am
moving (changing the display order) the columns. That's working fine.
If i retrieve the data again column display order goes back to original, is
there any i can keep column display order as i changed.
could you please help me in this regard
thanks in advance
Re-retrieving the data won't reset the column order. But reassigning
the dataobject or closing and reopening the window would. Unless
you're using something like the PFC preferences service, there's

...Capture Grid Datawindow Column Move
Is it possible to capture an event when a user has changed the column order
in a grid datawindow?
Since I posted the question, I will show what I figured out:
I compared the value of <DW Control
Name>.Object.DataWindow.Table.GridColumns at the time of the clicked event
and then after (not during) a lbuttonup event. If they are different then
the column order has been changed.

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

I was wondering if its possible to prevent a single column from being
moved/resized in a grid datawindow. I want the user to have the ability to
move/resize all other columns in this datawindow. Is it possible to
lock/protect a single column ?
Uncheck movable property for individual column, it is found in property page
of each column.

I have a grid datawindow and have made the first column (which happens to
be the unique key that is auto-populated) not visible and I use a picture
rowfocusindicator over it. So it acts as a placeholder really to force the
first visible column to appear to the right of the rowfocusindicator. Well,
I have discovered in PB8 that when I save the datawindow, PB moves the
invisible column to the end of the detail band. This was not the behavior
How can I force this column to stay where I have intended? I have "column
Thank...Does an event fire when columns are moved in grid dw????
Does any event fire when columns are dragged in a grid datawindow?? Thanks!
No. However you will get a lbuttonup event firing. In that event you'll have
to determine if something was moved or just assume it was. One thing you can
do is set a boolean (ib_lbuttondown) in your lbuttondown event then in
mousemove if ib_lbuttondown is true set another boolean ib_dragging to true.
In the lbuttonup event set ib_lbuttondown back to false and see if
ib_dragging is true. If it is then you can assume the user dragged
something. It is either a valid drag of an object, an accident mousemove
