Can datawindows created in Powerbuilder be used?
does anyone know if datawindows created in older versions of
Powerbuilder can be used in datawindow.net?
If they can, which version of Powerbuilder can the
datawindows be created in? Could I for instance take an
existing datawindow created in Powerbuilder 7 and use it in
a .net app without any modification?
Thanks for any help you can give.
Yes they can. They need to be migrated to the version of DataWindow
..NET that you are using, but the DataWindow Designer that comes with
the product will do that for you.

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 ...creating dynamic datawindow using create...
I am using the create statement to create a dynamic datawindow that will be
of type Group. When a datawindow is created of type Group the title(if
added to the create statement)/date/ and page numbering are automatically
added. The only downfall is that the items automatically added have no
names associated to them. Unfortunately I need a name to represent the
line of datawindow code so that I can change x/y coordinates and other
properties of the object.
If you have any idea as to how i can add a name to already created
datawindow syntax objects such as Text, and Computed fields ...Creating DLLs using Visual Objects for use in PowerBuilder

I am trying to dynamically add columns to a datawindow and I am running into
some problems. The columns that I am creating are NOT database columns but
instead are part of a manual result set. Essentially, I am trying to use
the datawindow like a spreadsheet, but I do not know up front how may
columns I will need. I use the datawindow painter to create an object with
a small number of columns. I then delete those columns in the datawindow
painter and use the modify() function with the create syntax to start adding
in the columns that I want. All goes well until I add one...how to dynamic create a column in datawindow?
