If you're object (or any related object) failed to migrate
successfully, you won't be able to edit it in a regular painter;
you'll have to Edit Source to modify it.
If you're migrating, a glance through my Migration Guide (see below)
may help. The methodology there would allow you to identify...Migrating from PowerBuilder 6.5 to PowerBuilder 8.0
We are doing a feasibility study of migrating a PFC based
PowerBuilder Application from v6.5 to v8.0. This application is
heavily PFC depended and also includes many custom based core layers.
If anybody has done (PFC based) powerbuilder migration prior kindly suggest
the best approach on the following.
1) How to successfully migrate from PowerBuilder 6.5/PFC - PowerBuilder 8.0/PFC.
2) How to fix/resolve post migration errors etc... .
Any help or suggestion will be appreciated.
Thanks and Regards

development machine and properly register the dll on my
development machine on windows 7.
When i deploy my dll and test application to a clean windows

error is displayed and the message box identifing that the
registration was successful is never displayed.

To this point Sybase has not published a list of bugs or migration do's and

We are migrating our application from PowerBuilder 5.0.4 to PowerBuilder
8.0.3. In PowerBuilder 5, ItemFocusChanged event was getting triggered
whenever a Filter() is applied on a datawindow control. Based on this
sequence of events, our application has some logic. Where as in
PowerBuilder 8, this itemfocuschanged event is not getting triggered when
the filter() is applied.
Is there any way to make this sequence of events occur in PB8 also? Any
programming tips will be appreciated.

There shouldn't be any problem with multiple versions of PB on the same
machine - different folder and dll names. Many of us have run 3 or 4
different versions concurrently!

I heard a long time ago that distributed PowerBuilder support was going to
be dropped in PowerBuilder 8.0 in lieu of using EAServer. Is that true?
When is PowerBuilder 8.0 coming out.

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 ...Powerbuilder 5 to Powerbuilder 10
