I am having problems with the datawindow.column.count property of a
datawindow. It just started happening with PB 6.501 and still works
fine in PB 5.0. The function that looks at this property is in an
ancestor userobject. The dataobject is assigned at this point but all
other properties of the datawindow are missing. Any suggestions?
Don't recall, but was it still dwDescribe() in version 5.0? If it was that
may be your problem.

We have mede some pages using datawindowbuilder.
There we used html-datawindows.
Now we have upgraded to PB8 and here it is called web-datawindow.
What is the differense?
40% of the pages arnt working after we migrated to PB8. It seems like there
have been some changes?
What errors are you seeing with the problem pages?

I have a HTML Datawindow with some dropdown datawindows in it. Everything works
fine except the drop down datawindows. The dddw's work fine in PB or Datawindow
All the dataobjects are in one pbl.
Can you take a look at the generated HTML and see if the data from the dddw
is present? The way it works is that the dddw is retrieved and then the
rows used in the html. Can you tell if it is being retrieved? Also, does
it work from previewing in PowerDynamo?

Does anyone know if there is a problem with using dot notation to hide
columns in PB 9.01 build 6533 from script ?
dw_1.Object.[column name].Visible = FALSE
I've tried it in PB 6.5 and it works ok.
When I run in PB 9.01, I get null object reference.
Nevermind. did a full rebuild and everything works now.

How to share the datawindow to inner datawindow of nested datawindow.
dw_1 is normal datawindow dw_nes is nested datawindow, both are placed
dw_nes contain dw_child datawindow
i want to share dw_1 and dw_child.
I have tried the below code, getting error
It's the dot notation. You will need to dw_nes.GetChild("dw_child", ldwc)
where ldwc is a _local_ datawindowchild.

In a word, no. Here's an extract from an upcoming article I wrote for PBDJ

I have a datawindow which contains two fields. One is named "customer_name"

these fields are contained in two different tables which are related by a
foreign key column "cust_id". Both of these columns have a DDDW edit
control. When I select the customer name I want to then have the
"job_siteno" column populated with all the site numbers related to this
particular customer. I would then be able to select the site number from the

Can anyone tell me if the HTML Datawindow DTC provides an 'easy' way to make
columns sortable like you can in the Datawindow DTC?
To do this you can code the following:
This code could be tied to a drop down list box or a set of radio
buttons that contains the column names to be sorted.

Is it possible to modify the contents of a Drop Down Datawindow on a HTML
Datawindow and for this to be accepted by the generated Update statement?
By Default the Drop Down Datawindow converts to a Non-editable <SELECT>
field on the HTML page. But I want to be able to add a new option into the

a few reports, but so far, only simple tabular and grid datawindows come up
fine but not others. There was one N-Up style datawindow, which had all the
