Problems With PowerBuilder 6.0 Help Files

hi there...

could anyone tell me if this is happening elsewhere as well.......
the problem is that the help files in pb 6.0 are incomplete
and sometimes very wrong(the examples are for the wrong functions)
say for example the reset function in pb 6.0..if you look it up in the
help files, you arean't allowed to jump to the different sintaxes

thanks

Yes the help files are sometimes less than helpful. Hopefully they
will be fixed in PB 6.0.01 (due to go into beta in a few weeks). I
share your frustration.

This bug in the help (ie, no links for the different syntaxes for the
Reset() function ) has been reported.  If you have found other
situations were the help files are wrong please report the problem.  
It's hard to correct what we don't know about.    

Thanks.

I reported a bug in the help files almost two years ago now, with PB
5.0.  I reported it at the conference in Orlando in 1996 confirming that
it still existed in 5.0.01.  Bug still exists in PB 5.0.02 and in PB
6.0.

Go to graph object properties.  Scroll down to Legend.  This page
indicates it specifies the alignment of the text (it doesn't).  The link
is correct, it specifies where the legend will appear.

PowerBuilder Help file buggy in 6.0 & 6.5?
I am wondering if anyone else is experiencing the same with regards to help topics: Selecting "debugging, debug mode" from the Help Index I get a help page on "Modify PowerScript Function" Under debugging, there is no topic for Just in Time debugging. I have come across number of similar bad links in 6.0 which seem virtually unchanged in 6.5. If there are corrections, can I download them from Sybase site?

Problems With datawindow scrolling in PowerBuilder 6.5 (and 6.0)
The datawindow scrolling functionality has been altered so that when scrolling through a datawindow using the thumb, it is possible to view the bottom of one page and the top of the next. This looks OK until a group is created in the datawindow that has its own heading. When scrolling as before, the heading remains in between the bottom of one page and the top of the next which doesn't look particularly attractive, especially if there are several items in the group heading. In 65Maint.txt document it says the following: "DataWindow Scrollbar Operation ------------------...

Powerbuilder 6.0 DW Plugin and Microsoft IE4.0 Problem

Powerbuilder 6.0 Questions and Problems
I am using Powerbuilder 6.0, and I have encountered some problems. In order to have the user enter information for a search, I use the "prompt for criteria" where I specify dw_name.Modify("field name.criteria.Dialog ='YES') for each field that I allow the user to enter. This works fine when I run my screen, and the prompt box is displayed. If the user clicks ok (whether or not any search information is entered), Powerbuilder does the search and everything is fine. My problem is when the user enters cancel. Through trial and error, I see that my user event (w...
