I noticed this problem in EAS 3.0 and thought that it would be fixed in EAS
3.5. However, I just installed EAS 3.5 and it still seems to be a problem.
Has anyone else had the same problem?
This is a known issue. According to Sybase it is an issue with IE. I'm not
100% sure there's not something that can be done about that...I'm pushing.
What's interesting is that tabbing in Netscape works fine with dddw fields.

I have a window with a tab control and tab pages are opened dynamically.
Each tabpage has a datawindow control. During runtime, the objects on the
window are included in the tab order but the columns in the datawindow
object on the tab page are not. Does anyone know how to include the fields
in the datawindow control in the tab order so that when the user hits the
tab key, focus does not move to another object on the window and moves to
the next field in the datawindow object?
Seems like a silly question, but did you check the tab order in the
datawindow painter? What about th...datawindow tab order
Not all of my datawindows will not let me use the tab key to go from field to

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.

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? ...Datawindows with child datawindows
I want to create a datawindow whose only data is three columns that will
themselves be drop-down data windows. These child datawindows will be
populated in PB script with dw_1.GetChild(). When I create that parent
datawindow (New | Datawindow | Freeform), what do I choose in the next
dialog box ("Which datasource would you like to use?") External?
That depends on how you want to populate and use the columns of the main DW.
The DDDW is an edit style that assists the user in selecting a value for the
column in the main DW. If you want to retrieve the values ...Nested Datawindow and Tab Order
I have a nested Datawindow which I need to allow focus to individual lines for
'drill down' purposes. I understand that the default for PB is to make the
object readonly whenever a report object is present. I've seen several postings
where individuals have encountered this challenge in the past. Anyone have a
solution that does not involve getting rid of the nested dw? I'm running PB 5.04
on W2K against SQL Server 6.5.
(Has this been addressed in PB 8? The app is undergoing specific changes now
and will migrated to PB 8 ASAP)
Thanks in advance.

I have two datawindow in a window, first datawindow have 5 fields,
after third field when user enter a tab, cursor should move to the
second datawindow , after that cursor should go back to first window
when user enters a tab.
please suggest me what would be the best approach for this.
You will have to code your own tab logic. I'm not sure what the best
approach would be. Maybe you can use the ItemFocusChanged datawindow
event with the KeyDown function.

Hello all...We are using PB9.03 Builder 8004 and I am at the
Format tabpage inside the DW Painter. I understand what the
Format tabpage does, i.e. it displays the format for a
particular column. So if you have a format of MM/DD/YYYY for
a date column, it will display 00/00/0000 when you insert a
row into the datawindow object. The part I do not understand
is the checkbox called Use Format. What does this do? Any
info would be greatly appreciated!!!:)
From what I can see, if the Use Format checkbox is checked,
the user must left clicked on the field to display the
formatted field wh...Tab order and buttons on Datawindows
When you have added a button to a data window is there a way to add it to

I set the tab order for a web datawindow in the hopes that it would be
applied on the web page and it still just seems to jump randomly from
columns on the dw to other objects on the page.
I have also set tab indexes on the .Net side as well. Can anybody apply any
reason to get everything in sync?
