This may seem like an unholy thing to do to a datawindow, but I ran
into a place where it was appropriate. First, I decided that I wanted to
use Don Roof's dropdownfilter service for datawindows, which is
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
datawindow to allow my users to resize columns while the application is
running. Unfortunately, the datawindow tries to resize the bitmap when
the column is resized, makin...Grid datawindow resizing
I would like my grid datawindow columns to size themselves
properly (magic I think). Is there a wat to programatically
change the column widths and have them stay that way< or to
stay resized when manually stretched?
My problem is this: when a value is entered into one cell of
the grid and the user hits the tab key to go to the next
cell, the cursor goes to the first??? cell and compresses
all of the columns to the original width. One of our grids
could have over 50 cells and the auto-resizing that occurs
is a major pain and time consumer.

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.

PB 7.02 Build 8046 on Windows NT 4.0
I have a problem with a Drop Down DataWindow (child) on a grid type
One of the columns in my DataWindow is presenting a selection, limited
(filtered) according to what the user has selected in a previous column (on
the same DataWindow). The Drop Down DataWindow is not displaying the raw
data (an abbreviated code), but an English text translation of the data
needed. Here is my problem:
When the DataWindow is activated, all data are correctly displayed (no
filtering yet). When the user clicks on one of the rows and on the column,

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
resize this colums, pictures show larger then original.

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.

Are there any plans to enable column freezing in a grid datawindow.
I like this possibility in Excel very much and think it would be nice if
we could offer our clients such an enhancement.
You already have the horizontalsplit property.

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? ...datawindow
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

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 ...datawindows in composite datawindow used in datawindow.NET, are not sliding up

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>

DW Control is a "container" that reserves real-estate on the surface of
a visual object.
