Add datawindow control for master datawindow #2
I hope you dont't mind an newbie question here. I am following the
tutorial of the Getting Started PB5 manual and I am stuck in chapter 8
"Building Ancestor Windows". Here are the steps:
1. I create a new window ( a master/detail window)and want to add a
control to be the master DataWindow in the applic.
2. I select the UserObj button and choose TUTOR_PB.PBL
3. When I click OK the manual tells me to click in the upper left corner
but nothing happens: there is already a blanc window visible, which I
can't move with the mouse.
4. I select Properties. The name ...DataWindow This, DataWindow That...

dc1 has a argument (arg1)
dc2 has a argument (arg2)
Arg1 and Arg2 are send by one column of dw_master.
When I use retrieve() function,the datawindow can display normal,but when I

display but dc1 normal!

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.

Add direct setting and getting capability for the datawindow where clause.
This would have to be a string array in case of unions.
Return ONLY the where clause(s) in the main select (in case of sub-selects,
ignore the where clause or somehow list it as a subselect in the where or a
subselect in the select).
It would be great if I could just get and set this as a value and have the
datawindow automatically change (or add) the where clause as specified.
This is for setting the where clause dynamically at run time. Currently
have to parse through the datawindow.table.select looking f...modifiyin a datawindow in a datawindow

That depends on how you want to populate and use the columns of the main DW.

column in the main DW. If you want to retrieve the values ...DataWindows and datawindow objects
Difference between Datawindow and datawindowobjects?
- datawindow is a control on a userobject or a window
- datawindowobject (DWObject) is a control within a datawindow, defined in
the dataobject of the datawindow.
You refer to it as <datawindow-instance>.Object.<datawindow object>

How Can I access/modify object/control from a Datawindow within Datawindow.
When i access/modify object/control from a Datawindow i used
dw_1.modify("name.text = 'new val'") but within another datawindow or child
datawindow it doesnt work.
Your description is difficult to understand due to the terminology. First,
a datawindow is assigned to a control - either a datawindow control or a
datastore. Second, the Modify function can only be called within a script.
With that as a basis, can you rephrase the question and describe more
precisely what you want to do? ...Binding DataWindow object to DataWindow control

I suspect that the dataobject ('dw_object1', the actual datawindow that you
painted in the datawindow painter) is not being compiled into the .exe file,
since its only reference is the string 'dw_object1'. If this is the case, you
need to compile the executable with a .PBR file that include...Vertical Scrollbar in datawindows control and dropdown datawindows
1. After migrating a PB application from PB5 to 6, the vertical scrolllbar

How can i solve that?
