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.

I have 3 columns in my Database that are being changed from integer to
numeric(6,1) . I want to change all occurrences of these columns in Datawindows
to the new datatype. I tried DWEAS but it did nothing. I am running PB 6.0 under
Win NT 3.51. Is there a patch for DWEAS under NT ?

However, if I configure my computer to use a Windows XP

datawindow object column borders to render correctly when
using a Windows XP theme?

I would like to set a datawindow object in a datawindow control dinamically.
So I did:
dw_control1.DataObject = 'dw_object1'
The code doesn't work right when I have a EXE.
Someone could help me ?

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...Hide datawindow column in html datawindow
Is there anyway I can hide a datawindow column in the generated html? I

generate the column. I want the column with type as hidden in generated

several people who have mentioned it in the past. Try adding an
enhancement request (I think you can do this through my.sybase.com).

I have a datawindow with a cloumn displayed as a checkbox.
Now there's a table with reasons why someone showed or did
not show up. From this table a made two datasources, one
with the reasons a person showed up, and one with the
reasons they didn't show up.
When the checkbox is checked the user can select in the next
column (dddw) why the person showd up. if the checkbox is
not checked the next column has the dddw with a datasource
with the reasons a person did not show up.
Now if i filled in a few persons en later on i open the

If the length of a column in a database is changed, it is required that
you drop the column and then add it again. Or you can export the
datawindow, change the length of the column to the new length and then
My question is: when the length changes, let's say from varchar 60 to
varchar 80, will the original length of 60 be displayed in the
properties of the column (I have noticed this, but I am not sure if it
happens by default)?
I ask because our client recently informed us of a description that
exceeds 60 and we have made the db change to reflect 80. Unfortunate...Changing Datawindow columns

I doubt there is a way to do this directly. More than likely, you will need
to destroy the existing object and add it back (do not forget to save the
attributes of the destroyed column). ...How to share the datawindow to inner datawindow of nested datawindow
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.

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

I have had to move a number of datawindows from Oracle 9i running on a

In the datawindow designer, I have also had to change the database interface
from O90 Oracle 9i to an ODBC datasource (because I was not able to
connect). In doing so, I have had to graphically re-create all the DW SQL
again because I get this error:

continue in graphic mode?
If I select "NO", the SQL is...
