Grid Datawindow Column Headers lost when visible set=0 then set = 1 in PB 7.0.3
Is there a fix or a way around the reported problem of the Column Headers
being blank in a datawindow Grid when you set the column Visible property
from 0 to 1. I have an application that allows a customer to create
Views/Profiles by selecting which columns in the datawindow they wish to
see/edit. All non-selected columns have the visible property set to 0. When
you change from one datawindow view/profile to another one that has a column
that was not visible in the previous view, the column header is blank ( even
though the visible property was changed to 1 ). This is a reported problem...IF you set column to width 0 in a datawindow grid, the column appear as a with column at the end of the grid
Can you remove the white space at the end of a grid, it seems to appear when
we set columnwidths to '0'..
I've not seen that. What version of PB are you using? What platform?

In a grid datawindow, when i change the visible property of several columns
setting them to invisible, objects in the header, footer or summary band in
the same column are also set to invisible.
The problem is that, when i set it visible again, the others objets stay
invisible. (no problem with PB 6.5).

This is for my teammate who's going crazy. He has a grid datawindow of 4

whatever he does WON"T let him slide it over. Is there some setting he
needs to set someplace or is he stuck?

I have a grid datawindow and have made the first column (which happens to
be the unique key that is auto-populated) not visible and I use a picture

first visible column to appear to the right of the rowfocusindicator. Well,
I have discovered in PB8 that when I save the datawindow, PB moves the
invisible column to the end of the detail band. This was not the behavior
How can I force this column to stay where I have intended? I have "column
Thank...datawindow.column.count not returning the column count of a datawindow
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've converted an internal application from 7.3 to 8.0.3 and
have no issues with existing code. However I've created a
new datawindow that does a three table join, and I set the
datawindow to have allow updates property set, setting one
of the tables for update and selecting three columns on that
table as the updateable columns and setting the two columns
that make up the primary key as the Unique Key Columns.
In the application when I try to save changes

Has anybody out there noticed problems with the dynamic creation of
multi-table datawindows and referring to the datawindow columns? In 5.0.04
PowerBuilder automatically prefixed each datawindow column with the table
name(e.g. table_name_column_name). This is now broken in PB 6.5.
Why did this change in 6.5? What necessitated this change so that all

In previous versions of PB there was the ability in a grid
data window to resize a column. Also there was the ability
to hide a column by keeping the mouse clicked and pass to
other column but now in order to hide a column you must keep
the mouse clicked and go exactly to the begin of the column
which is very difficult. If you keep the mouse clicked and
pass to the previous column the column does not resize =96
hide. I was able to do this in previous versions of PB. My
current version is 9.0.1 build 7204.
Please give me an answer if this is a bug and if your
planning to fix it.
