PB 7 vs PB 6 & PB 5
We have a large application, compiled with PB 5.04, running at about 20
Generally speaking, if a PB 5.04 app is compiled with PB 7, what changes can
the developer expect in app performance and memory usage?
I'm assuming that 5.04 app is a 16 bit app. With PB7, you're going to be
compiling 32bit apps. There are issues associated with that (I don't know
if you are calling 16 bit functions or not). The files will generally be
much larger. I haven't seen much myself that noticable as far as memory
or performance issues though.
O...PB 9.03 vs PB 9.02
What is better to use for already existing large client-server PB app?
In terms of stability, number of unfixed serious bugs, extra features...
We encountered lockup problems on some reports for our application with
9.0.3. I did lots of testing but couldn't pin down the cause, and the users
were getting frustrated. After a while I rolled back to 9.0.2 with EBF
7610, and this seems to be very stable.
Of course, the usual disclaimers apply: your mileage may vary, etc.

news:4314fe5e@fo...Different SetFocus() behaviour PB 10.5.1 vs PB 9.
I've noticed a small difference in behaviour in the
SetFocus() function in PB 10.5.1 compared to PB 9: Our
application has a logon window for users to sign in. There
are singlelineedit controls on the window for them to type
in userid and password. In the open() event of the logon
window, a SetFocus() is called for the userid sle
(sle_user_id.SetFocus()). In PB 9, the userid field would
get focus and a blinking cursor would appear but in PB
10.5.1, the blinking cursor does not show up even though
the field does have focus. Has anyone seen something like
...PB 7.0.03 vs. PB 7.0.02C3
I have this question. My company decided to move from PB 6.0 to PB 7.0.03.
In the process, I learned about existing regression bugs in version 7.0.03.
The solution to this problem would be to install PB 7.0.02C3. Does anybody
know how to get this version, or any other reliable release of version 7?
I heard from this newsgroup the c3 8046 is the most stable version of PB 7..
you can download the upgrade for PB 7 from www.mysybase.com

...Migration from PB 7 to PB 9
We have been using PB 7 for quite some time. Lately one of
our larger databases has been getting 'out of memory' errors
during a retrieve a data window in our current application.
Would upgrading to PB 9 prevent this? In addition, does PB
9 increase response times via ODBC (sql server) v. PB 7?
Make sure that the application's client machine is really running out of
memory. May be it's referring to "Out of System Resources". What version of
MS-Windows are you using?
If you are running out of memory, it may also be due to a low O/...PB 9.0.1 6053 vs. PB 9.0.1 7171
Hi all, the 7171 build is not where I want to be in terms of IDE stability.
Can I simply run the 6053 setup again to revert back and then simply regen
the pbl files or am I stuck where I am??
Let me know. Thanks
Delete all of the 7171 dated DLLs first. Most install utilities won't
overwrite a DLL with a later date.

I noticed that the syntax for column names has changed. Powerbuilder V7 the
column name was note_id. Powerbuilder V9 the column name is
user_notes_note_id. My application now gets an invalid row/column. Is
there any to get the SyntaxFromSQL to not add the table name to the column

We have a PB 9 application that mapped an event (in datawindow) to
pbm_keydown. In there code checked for the Enter key and overrode the
behaviour (added a line break - mimic Ctrl + Enter). This worked fine.
In PB 11.1, this event doesn't even seem to be fired (according to
debugger). Is this a known change in behaviour? It seems to work if we
change the event to map to pbm_dwnkey.
I don't know if it was a change in behavior or not, but I'm surprised it
worked before and that you made it work with pbm_dwnkey. There's a

I just inherited the support for an application which was written with
PowerBuilder 7.0.3 with Cornerstone 7. The application doesn't make
extensive use of Cornerstone, but does use extensive inheriting of Windows,
Datawindows, etc from the PFC (and thus from Cornerstone)
We would like to remove the Cornerstone libraries and migrate the
Application to PB9 (with PFC 9). This may be quite a bit of work. What I'd
like to know is how different is the PFC from 7 to 9 and could we get away
with just keeping the existing framework and still have full fuctionality of
our applicati...PB 6 vs PB 7 info
Is there a doc somewhere that details the changes from PB 7 over PB 6?

...ODBC and Informix 7 on PB 7 returns 0 for integer values
This is driving me crazy and I am hoping someone can help. I am connecting
to Informix 7 from PB 7 and when I retrieve values of a numeric type, I get
a 0 instead of the actual value. I checked against the database to make sure
the value is there( it is ) and then tried to retrieve the values from
WinSQL( it retrieved correctly ). So the problem seems to be isolated to
ODBC and Informix. I actually inserted the values from PB so I know that
part works, its just retieving the values.
A note: I connected to the database via the native interfaces and that
worked correctly. So its j...PB 7.0.3 to PB 9.x
We have two web applications using web.pb developed in 7.0.3
and using ASE 12.5.x db. Right now it's running on Win NT.
We already have our app in nvo's. We tried running one of
the applications in Win2000 and we ran into memory errors.
We are not sure if it's a case of incompatibility of pb and
win2000. If anybody out there has experienced the same
scenario, we would really appreciate any info.
Anyway, if we have to migrate to a newer ver of pb like 9.x
we would like to know if there is an alternative to using
EASERVER? Anything, cheaper or free would be great? (is

Recently we have migrated from PB 5.0.04 to PB 7 (build 7024 which is
