This is an enhancement request

Please allow referencing nested reports through GetChild. I think this is just an old Sybase limitation which has no reason anymore.

This limitation can be cheated with a nasty trick:

dw_1.Modify("processing=5") //Don't trust DW Syntax it works :)




But I think having direct method would be better.

Hi Tomas,

not sure what the 3 lines would help you to do next.

I image you want to access values in the nested DW, for which you can just use 


Rather, say the nested is a tabular nested DW, what is missing is a way to getItems or RowCount

  • ldw_child.RowCount(0 is always 0 // this is wrong also for freeform nested DW
  • GetClickedRow() and GetClickedCount() are failing


Surprisingly, say you have 3 rows, this line returns correct value.


Anyhow, apologise for going a bit off-topic (your question was for *freeform* nested DW). I've submitted an enhancement request to Appeon.

Yeah, I think I've requested the same thing quite some time ago.

And please be clear where we have to do enhancement requests. Some time ago I did one on product@appeon.com and I was told that that was not correct for enhancement requests.

Who told you that product@appeon.com is wrong place?

On our roadmap page, scroll to middle and click on "Submit Feature Idea" button see where that goes: https://www.appeon.com/developers/roadmap

Hi Armeen,

Honestly I don't remember,.. one of your employees.

I'll gladly use the email address in the future though.

Hi Miguel, I should clarify there is more than one way to submit feature idea, so maybe one of our employees suggested alternate method. But definitely sending an email is also valid method.
