Grid Datawindow and resize columns
My datawindows are Grid type, the property "MouseSelection", on the first
tabpage, is unchecked. It's posible resize the columns without that
In PB 8.0, I can resize columns in a grid window with Mouse Selection
checked or unchecked.
Resizing columns doesn't require being able to select them. The icon for
selection and resize is different. Selection is the normal arrow and resize
is the vertical bar with 2 horizontal arrows, 1 to pointing to each side.

On a per-column basis, or for the whole datawindow in general? Because
you can already turn it off for the whole thing...

Because there are picture or button object in some columns. And if you

There isn't such an event.
I guess you could code a timer event that checks it to the previous value.

I have migrated an application from PB7.0.3 to PB10 and I am

It's possible that my cuestion sounds stupid, but is there a way in the

I can do it with the mouse and with edit source, but I don't found a
property to set the column width.
No - that's a "feature" of the grid datawindow. In the Preview pane, you
can grab and resize column widths (but you have to have gridlines ON)

It would be very very helpful if an event on the datawindow control would
fire when a column in a grid datawindow was moved or resized by the user.
Like a ColumnResizing event with dwo, row, oldHeight, oldWidth, newHeight,
newWidth parms. Of course in a grid you would have a null dwo if it was
just a pure vertical resize and row would be null if it was a pure
horizontal resize as all columns or rows, respectively, would get the
effect. I'd go for that. I bet it would be a pretty easy thing for Sybase
to implement as well.

How can i resize the width of a computed column to the length of the text

You'll have to use a set of API to determine actual number of PBU needed to
display a full text using current font settings. There's no way to do that
in native PB code. I can give you code example if needed.

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

Don't recall, but was it still dwDescribe() in version 5.0? If it was that
may be your problem.

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.

This may seem like an unholy thing to do to a datawindow, but I ran

triggered by clicking on a small bitmap icon which is supposed to be
positioned next to the column heading. This is fine for the tabular
style that Don's samples used. However, I wanted to use a grid-style

running. Unfortunately, the datawindow tries to resize the bitmap when
