Re: Nested Datawindow Report (Datawindow Printing)
Does anyone know if this problem has been corrected in PB 8
or 9? Please advise. I am currently using PB 7.
Problem: In case of large text fields, PowerBuilder not
printing the Data correctly. Lines are cut in half and also
not printing last few lines . This is happening on nested
Here is the link to the original documentation:
Original documentation :-) states that this is not a bug but expected
behaviour, so what kind of "correction" do you expect?
Philip ...Re: Composite Datawindow Report (Cut off on printing)
I have one main datawindow which has 10 datawindows. One of
the datawindows has a field which has more than 10,000
characters. When I go to preview my main datawindow, on
page 4 of 10 the text filed which has more than 10,000
characters is being cut off at the top of the page(The text
field is on a deatil band). Half of the text remains on 3rd
page and half on 4th page. The header and footer print
properly. Can anyone tell me if this is a Powerbuiler 7 bug
or not? Any help would be greately appreciated.

I have tried the below code, getting error
It's the dot notation. You will need to dw_nes.GetChild("dw_child", ldwc)

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
