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 ...

Version of PowerBuilder (ref: Creating database for PowerBuilder)

Unless you have a very good reason to do so, we recommend you don't use Access. Use SQL Anywhere instead - it's more stable - and a far better database in my opinion. PowerBuilder (enterprise) supports just about every database out there, so if you...

Dynamically creating columns in a datawindow
Hi all, 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...
