In order to use PowerFilter in Powerserver Web you need to change 3 things to work around appeon problems.        

1) Structure comment 

Powerserver Web does not support comments in structures and will skip processing the entire structure.  So your structure won’t be in your deployed application and powerfilter won’t work at all.  So, you have to delete all the comments in the 2 structures in powerfilter.

2) datawindow text object expressions 
 

Both the visible and the text value expressions don't operate the way they do in powerbuilder.   The visible expression seems to be ignored entirely if the visible checkbox is checked.  You can get this to work by removing the checkmark on the visible property.  The visible expression will work then.  You may notice that the TEXT value has an expression too.  That seems to be ignored completely in appeonNo changes are needed for text value.
