"Edit" Vs"Edit Mask"

Are there any potential problems changing a datawindow date field from 
"edit" to "edit style" and vice versa?

I have over 100 datawindows and who knows how many of them have date 
fields.  Question is if I change the edit style from "Edit" to "Edit Mask" 
of dd/mmm/yyyy.  Will this cause any kind of problems?

TIA

Well we changed ours from editmask to edit (partly because of the large
numbers of bugs in edit masks in early builds of PB7, partly because our
customers found editmasks unfriendly to use) and it didn't cause any
problems.

So hopefully changing in the other direction shouldn't give you any problems
either - (caveat): though it depends on your code to some extent ;-)

Alright GB?  Interesting enough, we are making this editmask change so our 
product will be more appealling to the UK market.  USA date format as you 
know is mm/dd/yyyy, and UK/Europ is dd/mm/yyyy. We decided to go with 
dd-mmm-yyyy so mmm would show month name and will satisfy users worldwide. 
Regardless of the editmask for display and/or data-entry, it should work 
with the any relational database as the date will be stored as mm/dd/yyyy 
hh:mm:ss.  Do you see any issues?

We are developing applications for clients with Oracle, Sybase, or DB2. 
What database are you using?  I was wondering if RDBMS in UK stores date 
field the same way we do in United States as mm/dd/yyyy hh:mm:ss.  Any 
information will be greatly appreciated.

Regards,
Michael

Using "+" or "||"
Using SQLAnywhere 5.5.04, I've gotten into the habit of using "||" in ISQL to indicate a string concatenation. I needed to paste my SQL statement into the PowerBuilder script painter for some embedded SQL, and PB didn't like the "||" very much at all. I changed it to "+" and it seems to be ok. Do these two operators indicate ~exactly~ the same thing? moin, afaik these two's are not the same! if you're using "||" and any term is NULL then in the resultstring the term will be ignored if you use "+" then the resutlstring is NULL mfg ========================== andatec gesellschaft f�r angewandte datentechnik mbh Ruwoldtweg 15 22309 hamburg --------------------------------------- Dipl.-Ing.

What makes "Drafts" folder "editable"?
Hi, I've recently started to use a subfolder of my drafts folder to store notes in a manner similar to the "Notes" feature of Outlook. It works reasonably well. The next obvious step is to move it out of the "Drafts" tree and into it's own top level folder. Is there a simple setting that I can tweak in the data files to enable editing of messages in a folder? To be honest, I'd prefer to be able to edit any message in any folder; however, I can see how that opens a can of worms. As an aside, if it's a simple tweak, am I alone in thinking that...

Query performance of "=" vs "<" and ">"

What is with the " [Edit] [Edit] [Edit]" posts?
Don't know where I should post this, hopefully a short thread here is okay.

"SSL" "Mail" and "Code"
Does anybody know of any discussions taking place within Mozilla regarding these 3 bits in the certificate manager? Perhaps I've missed something in the discussions here. In any case, I think a new mechanism for indicating trust w/in the Mozilla apps are needed. Take for example the "StartCom Certification Authority" root. The Certificate Manager (I'm using Firefox on Windows) says it can identify web sites, email users, and code yet the cert itself says it can only be used for signing other certs (essentially, that is). At a minimum this is confusing but I have...
