To give some context, I´m trying to migrate some relatories from PB to C# using the Snap Developer (Cloud Pro) in PowerBuilder 2021, but it only gives me a class that works in the same way as the datawindow. I saw in the "edit source" option that every visual element is there, but I cannot make it work.
Here is the question: is there a way to convert the visual information and disposition (the layout/design) or do I have to remake everything from scratch, using the classes?
Thanks in advance!

Snapdevelop, DataWindowConverter & PowerScriptMigrator do not deal with ui. They give you a way to separate business logic from ui. The main idea is to allow you to convert an existing application to a three tier architecture. The ui may be a powerbuilder application that communicates with rest API, or any other solution (web, mobile, java, whatever you want) that can consume those API. Depending on the complexity of your original powerbuilder project the work you will have to do may differ. You may decide to convert your PB application to consume those web services, but if you need to create a web or mobile application, then you have to redesign the ui.

Adding to what Andreas said, Appeon has no plans to support DataWindow UI/visual object outside of native PowerBuilder.
