Using PowerBuilder's or Infomaker's Query Painter in my applicatoin
I am at the point in my application where I would like to allow my users
to create customized queries, and possibly reports. I have figured out
how to use syntaxfromsql to convert sql to the special datawindow code,
and this works find for me. But some of my users arn't as gifted in the
sql department. So now I wish I had a nice GUI query builder. My question
is; Is the query painter, and maybe even the datawindow painter accessable
from Powerbuilder script kind of like an activeX? Or an object that I
can drop into a window. I think I am to the point that I could recreate

Running 2 concurrent PowerBuilder apps (both MDI). Is there a way to
trigger a user event on the frame of one of the apps from the other? I can
get a handle to the frame window, and I am guessing that a Send() of some
kind would do the trick, but I don't know which parameters to use or where
the parameters for the Send() are documented.
Thanks for the help.
I recently had the same situation. You can use send or post to send a message
to a window in another application. First you need the handle of the window
you are sending the message to. Since it is in another applica...PowerBuilder Books on O'reilly's Safari
I just noticed that the book PowerBuilder9 Internet and Distributed
Application Development is available at O'Reilly's Safari Books Online
Looks like you can even buy a PDF version from the informIT.com site
Any idea when (or if) the PowerBuilder Advanced Client/Server
Development book will make it onto Safari? This is a great book and
would be nice to have it preserved and accessible in an online format.

Product name: Acrobat Reader V5.0, Powerbuilder V9
Operating System: Windows XP
I have an Acrobat Reader's ActiveX control on my window application to
present and print PDF files. The application was developed using
Powerbuilder V9. I need to know if a user has just printed a file then
save the printed date into a database. The user can click the 'Cancel'
button on the print dialog window from Acrobat Reader to cancel the
printing. In this case I won't update the printed date. How can I know
if the user has clicked the 'Cancel' button to cancel the printing?
The most recent patch for Powerbuilder Enterprise I can find is at Sybase >
Support > Downloads > ... There, Powerbuilder Build 8011 is part of
Consolodated EBF #2 for EAStudio. Other builds (8030, 8033) seem to be
about. Can anyone tell me what build is considered "official". Also, where
can I get these more recent builds and are there risks in applying them.
Thanks very much.

(I hate resorting to insults, but I really need some resolution, or enough
evidence to compel my superiors that I must abandon PowerBuilder. My
previous two posts on this went unanswered.)
I've always believed that PowerBuilder was not an adequate environment for
doing anything but simplistic data windows. Now this opinion is supported
by the fact that PowerBuilder doesn't provide the correct environment to run
ActiveX controls. I suppose all those stories from co-workers about bad
experiences with anything resembling *real* *programming* should have warned
me. My *first*...powerbuilder's orientation
Is it true that Sybase orients powerbuilder only to database appliation?
but we wish it could provide more tools and functions used to develop more
kinds of applications ,such as TCP/TP,multimedia and so on just like VB or
Delphi does ,instead of calling winapi complicatedly.
PB's strength has always been development of database-oriented business
applications. The fact that native Windows functions are not in the box
probably stems from PB's multiplatform origin - it used to run on Mac and
two or three flavors of Unix. Encapsulating more of the Windows APIs in

Hi. I am looking for some insight about Powerbuilder. First of all, does
anyone know what share of the market Powerbuilder has compared to it's
competitors. It seems to me it has lost a lot of ground the last few years
but I don't have any hard facts to back up that statement. The reason I am
afraid it has lost ground is because I see less job ads looking for PB
programmers and also I know of several companies in my locality that have
stopped developing with PB.
Secondly, how hard is it to take a client-server application developed in PB
and convert it to a web application? S...General ?'s about DBD's and platforms
PSCI_1I am relatively new to Perl, primary experience through Windows NT
with limited knowledge of UNIX. I have been instructed to identify a
corporate standard version of Perl and upgrade our desktops and servers. For
servers we have NT, HP/UX and SunSolaris. We run Oracle 7 & 8, and DB2 UDB.
Is it naive of me to think that I can have one standard build of perl for
the corporation? I was thinking of having one, with DBD's for all our
Does anyone know if it's possible to acces a PowerBuilder DLL from a
non-PowerBuilder application, if it's not possible how can i create, in
PowerBuilder, something like an API to be a accesed by other applications.
Thank in advance.
In visual basic can write :
Dim a as new object
a.createobject("clase") // Excel use Excel.Application
now, you can use your object with yours events...
in PB use ConnectToNewObject

I understand that Powersoft has stopped supporting PB on the Mac. Does
anyone know where I could find that information directly from Sybase. I
have spent quite a bit of time on their site with no results!

...Powerbuilder Can't find Powerbuilder NVO on Server
I have been trying to get through the PB and Jaguar document, and
specifically I have been working with a Powerbuilder NVO and trying to
load it onto the server, and then access it from Powerbuilder.
I have constructed the Powerbuilder NVO from the oleobject. I placed
one function, with a return type of (NONE) as instructed, with a string
passed by reference. I use the OLE automation tool to compile the .tlb,
..reg files. I have tried this with both .PBD and .DLL with identical
results. Before I load the component on the server, I can see all the
packages and methods normally. A...Replace 1's and 0's in a gridview column with Yes's and No's
Is it possible to change the display of a column in a gridview to show a Yes for all 1's and a No for 0's that display in a particular column of a gridview bound to a database? If so, can someone share the way with me? I am using ASP.NET 2.0 with VB Code Behind.
One way you can do is thrrough CASE in your select statement:
Select YesNoColumn= CASE yourColumn
WHEN 1 THEN 'Yes'
WHEN 0 THEN 'No'
ELSE '' END

Why use a BSD kernel? I hope the reason is more than, just because they
It's easy to understand why the would want to use Debian packages. :)
