Is this a SQL Anywhere question?
If not, you have posted to the wrong forum.
If yes,...Use PowerBuilder DLL in PowerBuilder
We use PB6.5.
We would want to use a DLL create from PB in a PB application.
We compiled an a PBL as DLL.
After we tried to use DLL in a user object external, but without success.
How can we do to use DLL create from PB or use in a new PB application some
object (visual and no) before compiled with PB?
Any help will be appreciated.
When you create a DLL from a PB library it is not really a standard Windows
DLL. I'm not sure what the difference is. If you are making calls from PB
then just use the standard PB calling syntax the ...PowerBuilder 11.Net
Looks like the latest release of PB 11 seems to finally work with
PowerDesigner 12.x (12.1 in my case) instead of only PD 10.x. This should
make Dave Dichmann happy <lol>! So for you adventuresome testers out there
with PB 11 and PD 12.x, please try and make some QA time to test drive this
new symbiotic relationship <bg>.
If you do not have PB 11.Net but would like to join the PB 11.Net Beta
program, please follow this link:

Our company is going to upgrade PowerBuilder. Currently we are using version
7, and we are going to upgrade either to version 9 or 10.
Does anyone have any recommendations if we should go for version 9 or 10?
What is the current release of version 10, and is it stable or is there a
lot of bugs?
If you have any hope of running the applications in the future on XP, W2003
or soon to be W2006 (LongHorn) you will have to jump over to UniCode - ie

Apparently there's some data conversion issues that differ from PowerBuilder
10.5.2 and 11.5.1 (builds listed in subject). The following mini scrip
results in different returned values:
lb_test = 48
ld_test = Dec(lb_test)
In PowerBuilder 10.5.2, the messagebox displays the value "48". In
PowerBuilder 11.5.1 the messagebox displays the value "0.48". It appears
that in PB 11.5.1, it's dividing the result by 100 for some reason. It
appears to be a bug, just wanted to ve...Powerbuilder
