Child datawindows (Nested DataWindows)

Hello all...I was wondering... I have used Child Datawindows
for quite some time under PB9.03. These are invaluable when
a user is in the Parent DataWindow and must choose a value
from a list of choices provided by the Child DataWindow. The
kind of Child DataWindow I am talking about is a
DropDownDataWindow (DDDW). This is the only kind I have ever
used. I was simply wondering whether there are more kinds of
Child DataWindows other than the DDDW? Any info would be
greatly appreciated.:)

The next most popular use is of child DWs within
Composite Presentation Style parents.

Nested Reports are also useful, but are not strictly
child DWs with a little less flexibility (eg: you cannot use
GetChild() to gain a reference to a Nested Report).
