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 ...DataWindow This, DataWindow That...

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

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.

You can print a (hidden) composite DW that is composed of the two DW's
on the entry window. The trick is to
a) possibly do a kludge here (see note below),
b) share the DW's on your current window with the two DW's on the
c) print the composite DW.

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>

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? ...
