Event for column move/resize in grid datawindow
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.
M. Searer <email@example.com> wrot...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...

On a per-column basis.
Because there are picture or button object in some columns. And if you
resize this colums, pictures show larger then original.

I've not seen that. What version of PB are you using? What platform?

It's possible that my cuestion sounds stupid, but is there a way in the
datawindow designer to define the column width in a grid datawindow
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)

column resize feature of the grid style dw. Because those columns
contain bitmap expressions they should

For the columns containing text data resizing should be valid.

That's why I used a dw. But column resizing must be generally available

Does anyone now if there is an event that can be mapped on a datawindow
control that fires when a column is moved on a grid datawindow?
IIRC, there's not. You'll have to use the events associated with the mouse
buttons. It's been discussed before; a thorough search at
http://groups.google.com/advanced_group_search should give you the answers

I have migrated an application from PB7.0.3 to PB10 and I am
having problems resizing columns at run-time on a grid
datawindow which has the grid setting turned on and Column
Moving and Mouse Selection both checked. The datawindow is
part of a "Preview" feature of the application which allows
users to modify the look of a view by changing column width,
sort order, etc.
Any ideas? Thank you,
Create a grid dw in PB10. Do you have the same problems?
I was able to create one and didn't.
This may be a migration issue. If so I would recreate the

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?

<Victo...Column resize in a grid datawindow in a tab contril
I have a grid style datawindow sitting in a tabpage of a tab control.
The users would like to adjust the column widths sometimes. When the edge
of a column is clicked the divider bar comes up as if to allow the resize
but when the mouse is moved to a new width, the column only resizes a small
amount and the cursor turns into the dragdrop icon.
In a normal window, it seems the grid datawindow resizes just fine. Is
there some sort of problem within a tabpage?

I am attempting to disable the resize functionality for one
column in my grid datawindow. I would like to have all
other columns in the datawindow resizeable.
I have reviewed the powerbuilder help and found the column
property 'resizeable', but it does not seem to ever prevent
resize on the column.
I am using Powerbuilder 11.1 Build 8204
Any help on disabling resize on one column would be greatly

How can i resize the width of a computed column to the length of the text
in the column to display the entire 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.

...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.
