datawindow expression


I made an expression on my datawindow level : for example
the border expression :

Now I want to get this syntax via script on my window level
How can I do this so that I can also put this or another
expression back to the datawindow expression ?


This also gives me data in the field, but what do I have to
do to get only the expression ?

Thnx in advance

Modify Expression Editor
How about improving on the Modify Expression Editor a bit? We have some quite complicated expressions, and the tiny little MLE control that PB uses to allow us to edit expression is very clumsy (and yes, I do realize about the elipse to bring up the modal Modify Expression window - which contains an only slight less tiny MLE for editing the Expression). Not to mention that embedded Returns in the expression can cause the computed field to behave funny. How about a real editor, complete with color markups, support for indentation and carrage returns, AutoScript even! Oooh,...

DataWindows Expressions for contraints on grid datawindows...
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...

datawindow expressions using datacolumns from other datawindows
Is there a possibility to access datacolumns from other datawindows from a datawindow expression. In fact, I have two datawindows which have a master/detail-relation. For example I want to set a columns visible or protect property in the detail dw depending on the datavalue of a column in the master dw. Thanks Martin Martin, There is no direct way. You could, however, write a couple global functions... one to set a value, one to get a value (then call these from a computed field in the DW)... but you're probably better off doing this in a script.

Can DataWindow.Data.HTMLTable handle DataWindow expressions ?
Hi there, I have a couple of DWs that I am saving as HTML. I use 'DataWindow.Data.HTMLTable' to get the html (I've also tried data.html). I prifix this with the StyleSheet in order to get the layout correct i.e. bold, colours etc.. One DW is very simple and works no problem. The other (external) DW is very complicated and has loads of columns. Depending on various column data values, all the columns have expressions to control things like x and coords, height, width, visibility etc.. When I get the HTML the layout is not correct. Some column are not displayed when the...

Datawindow Expressions
Hi there! I'm having a problem that I hope someone can help me with. I'm trying to change the attributes of a datawindow in PowerBuilder 6.5 so that the list of available radio buttons defined for a column is dynamic. Specifically, if a flag column in the datawindow is set to a 1, I need an extra radio-button added to the list of available selections. Otherwise, it should not be present. I've been looking at the .Values attribute for the datawindow object and I can manipulate it to change the available options but only when I don't have an expression. I just c...

Datawindow Expressions
Hi I have an expression to change the color of text on row in a datawindow , 'if (change_colour =1,rgb(255,0,0),rgb(0,0,0) )', but what I am trying to do is only change the color of a particular column on the row. Is there any way to do this? All the columns have to have the expression but any combination of the columns are to have the color change. Hope that makes sense.
