To PFC or Not To PFC
I'm returning to PB development after about 7 years in management and
I'm trying to figure out how PFC fits into the current PB world. I
used it with 6.5 and thought it was great (though sometimes a little
complex, especially when debigging). It seems that Sybase doesn't
push it anymore and I think I saw a post that said it hasn't changed
I'll be developing an app for commercial sale and I think PB is
perfect since I think I can get more done in a shorter period of time
with PB than with anything else. I especially like that PB's future
leads...PFC ? Not PFC ?
I am about to start a very big application and would like to know whether
to use PFC or not. Is it not a good idea if we are only using a very small
portion of the PFC functionalities?
What are the benefits of using PFC? What are the disadvantage of using it?
We already have development problem because it is too slow to bring up the
object and window list in the dubugger.
To Use or Not to Use? I dont have an answer for you there but, a solution to
your speed of the debug issue is the following. We have found that keeping
copies of the PFC, PFD, and PFE p...Resize Service and Vertical Scroll Bar not showing in my DW PFC Powerbuilder 7.03 (Win2000 environment)
When I turn on the resize service my vertical scroll bar dissapears and the
DW seems to be pushed beyond the frame window. Is there a problem with my
configuration. My resolution is 1024 X 768.
Is this a bug??
Thanks In Advance
I put this code in my resize event of sheet windows to keep the datawindow
within the window frame, no matter if you resize the window or not. The numbers
are the sizes the datawidow is smaller than the actual window. For instance, in
this example, the window may have been 3200 wide and my datawindow was 1950
wide, so I plug the value 250 in f...PFC Resize service
Hi - I want to do resizing on objects which are layed out as one is below
the other.. so I have a Listview on top and bottom I have a dw.. What I want
is to be able to scale the listview at bottom and the dw should move
respective to the listview scale and also the DW should scale bottom..
Do you know what is the best way to achieve this.. I am trying to use the
PFC service by providing manual percentage.. Trial and error..
Any help/samples code would be highly appreciated..
You might want to scale the lv object to the right..and the dw have scale
I'm searching for an easy and robust way to achieve that a window can't be
resized smaller than set by inv_size.of_setMinSize.
The solution should work with PowerBuilder 5, 6 and 7.
Any good ideas ?

...PFC services in non pfc-template application
Can I use the PFC resize service in my old MDI applications without PFC
template. How can I do it.
I've imported this nvo objects in my applications but i don�t know how can i
use it with my windows.
There is no blanket answer for that. You (or someone) would have to
look at each individual service in question and determine how it's
linked into other objects. For example, I'd expect very little
cross-dependencies for the String service, but I'd expect a lot of
issues with the Logical Unit of Work service. Also, if you've
implemented an anc...PFC Resize service #3
We are running v8.03 using PFC and have a problem with the resize service
When designing a window including a datawindow (Form Type) we set the footer
bar just below the columns to prevent the user from beign able to scroll
down using the mouse wheel.
When a user then does a resize (maximize) the end columns in the datawindow
get get off as they have moved under the footer bar in the datawindow when
resizing rthem using SCALE.
Does anyone have a fix or a workaround for this problem.
Any help would be appreciated

Hi. I have a small problem with the PFC resize service. In one form I am
dynamically changing the dataobject of 2 DWs depending on certain criteria.
If I do this when the form is not in it's original size I still get the new
DW in it's original size... fair enough I guess. I couldn't figure out an
easy way to resolve this so I put in this dodgy looking piece of code (on a
command button that does some other stuff):-
IF Parent.WindowState = Maximized! THEN
Parent.WindowState = Normal!
lb_max = TRUE
lb_max = FALSE
ll_w = Parent.Wi...PFC validation datawindow service?
Is there PFC validation datawindow service that checks for duplicate value
or null value? I would like to have the PFC service to check for a
specific column in a datawindow to prevent from user to add a new row that
would contains a duplicate value and/or a null value.
If not, then I would need to create my own NVO to handle this functionally.

I am using PFC with PB5 and a Paradox database through Microsoft Paradox
ODBC driver and have a situation where I have 3 drop down lists: district,
property and building. For each combination I then display and want to
update the data for Materials and Lab Results in two datawindows that are
derived from u_dw and are linked using the datawindow linkage service.
My problem is that if I don't have any materials for a building, the
materials datawindow shows no rows which is how it should be. However, the
lab results datawindow keeps showing data from the previous building and

I have been using the PFC resize service which is great... but does anyone
know if there is a service that will resize the fields within a DW when the
DW itself is resized? Like figure what percentage of the original window
each field is and resize them accordingly?

I turn on the resize service at pfc_preopen event for the window then
coded the of_SetMinSize(1300, 600)
I was able to shrink the window and it's contents to a very small area,
but the resizing of the controls stopped around the argument value for
My question is when you call of_SetMinSize(1300, 600 ) Can you shrink the
window and it's content beyond that value? OR
The resizing service will stop resizing the window controls beyond these
value, but you can shrink the window as much as you like?
No it just stops the objects from resiz...about pfc menu and Resize service
pb 7.0.3 build 10009
I asked a question the pfc menu and Window's Resize service can not work
perfect together about half a month ago. But I didn't get the answer. I got
a set of pfc libary(I don't know what version it's) days ago. I replaced
them to my application and regenerate all windows. The problem resolved!
I think it's worth to tell you.
