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 ...I will print two datawindow in one page,and I use child datawindow.One master datawindow (dw_master)with two child datawindow(dc1 and dc2)
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
print preview or use Zoom or printsetup() ,the childdatawindow dc2 can't
display but dc1 normal!
Thanks for your help!

Using PB 8.0.3 9704 on Win2K.
I have a DataWindowChild that came from a GetChild() call for a composite
datawindow. At runtime, I don't "know" what composite datawindow is the
parent of the child datawindow.
Any ideas on how to get this information?
I tried DataWindowChild.GetParent(). Compiles fine and "Help" says this
should work, but all I get is a null object reference.
Thanks in advance...
Is this a problem with a poorly designed function signature?
Succesfull GetChild call could ONLY have been done with having a reference
to the datawindow...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
The next most popular use is of child DWs within

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

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 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>
