Using a PowerBuilder app to drive another Windows app
My users need to run a canned Windows application repeatedly with a variety
of parameters on a variety of datasets. In order to do this, they have to
log in, choose a menu item, key in some parameters, click an OK button and
exit. And then do it again and again and . . .
We want to set up a database with the appropriate parameters and write an
application to drive the process. We've considered Winbatch but would
rather not introduce another development tool . . . if it's not too hard to
accomplish the task in PowerBuilder.
This has to run in a Windows 95 or NT Workstatio...Powerbuilder based 'trial' and 'copy protection' for a PB app.
Has anyone written a Powerbuilder based control or library
for copy protecting and licensing a Powerbuilder application
I would like to offer customers a 30 day free trial and then
be able to provide them an unlock license key to license the
software on a particular computer.
I have found the commercial solutions to be complicated and
cumbersome and expensive expensive.
you should post this question over in the commercial-isv.general newsgroup

and would like to find out what it takes to get it to work with an Embedded
Is this mostly handled in the connect screen?
Where can I find the details on this?
I assume by embedded you mean you want to use the
authenticated version that comes with PowerBuilder. You
would deploy the application along with the runtime files
required by the authenticate version of ASA that you are
using. The authenticated version will only accept
connections from certain application, which in this case

I have created a small document management system using
Powerbuilder 11. It allows users to select and store any
type of file and stores the data in an ASA10 database. I
would like to add a preview function so that if a user
selects a file from their file system... say a .DOC, .XLS ,
Visio, .JPG, .TXT etc... or any other type of file that they
have an appropriate application for, a small 'preview'
window lets them look at the document without actually
opening the application that created it.

we are using enable for more than one year now and we are very
satisfied with the product. Before using enable we used the

unhandy for us. With enable we have less work translating an

I am using PB 7.0.3 and would like to run an executable outside of PB

system event in PB that I could use to trigger the executable or any
other way to do this automatically?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
You can't rewrite PB sin ce you don't have the source code.
PB8 has command line options to build executables, etc. Here's a clip from
online help "What's new in PB8":

...Accessing PowerBuilder from another app
I have a windows application (Oracle forms 4) from which I would like to
link to a PowerBuilder app, get to a certain screen, and pass certain data
through as arguments.
The bit which I need help with is the linking to PB and passing data. Could
anyone point me in the right direction? How do I call specific windows?
You can use Windows messages for that. You need to map a user event on the
target PB window to an event in the range of pbm_custom01 to pbm_custom75.
These events have 2 fixed parameters, wparam (ulong) and lparam (long) which you
can use...Any issues with App's deployed with PowerBuilder 9.0.1(Build 6533) in Windows Server 2003.

know if there are any known problems before deploying our PB
apps in the Microsoft Windows Server 2003 operating system.
Any info is really appreciated. Thanks.

You won't be able to just execute an Open() against another instance of an app.
You might want to look at making your app DDE aware, then sending your second
instance a DDE command that will tell it to open the window itself.

I'm getting nowhere with this. Using python + marionette, I launch the "Contacts" app on my device -> click a contact -> in the view details screen I then click the 'sms' button.

However, Marionette still thinks I'm in the 'view contacts' screen (if I dump the current html at this point, that's the screen I get) so I can't make it type a message etc...

is; Is the query painter, and maybe even the datawindow painter accessable

The PB documentation includes the following little disclaimer "Microsoft

Our Citrix server will be running Windows 2000, and I will have up to 150 or
so instances of my application running concurrently.
