Hi Friends, I have an MDI app.  In one of MDI sheets, I have a dw object and a tab object.  Both objects have code for the rbuttonup event that pops up a different menu depending on which object or tab is clicked. When the user has the app running ...
Hi all, My customer noticed something very strange... when he's got my application running, then clicks on the desktop (or runs another app from his task bar), then comes back to my application, the Drag/Drop event is firing.  I sprinkled the code w...
Hi all, I've got a dw that I want to over-ride the default Windows paste behavior on.  In my dw the user can copy (CTRL+C) a value, then highlight several rows and paste (CTRL+V).  I have an event ue_keypress for the keypress event, and trap CTRL+V....
I've got a couple of DW's that I want to be read-only under certain conditions.  I use PFC's  dw.of_SetUpdateable( FALSE ), but I also don't want any of the columns to be "clickable".  So, I add  dw.modify("Datawindow.ReadOnly=YES").  This work, but ...
Me again, In my window with a parent DW that has 3 DDDW fields, if I select something from the one of the DDDW's, it appears that the dw update status is changed to Modified! The DW is set to not updateable. When I close the window, I get a message ...
Hi all, I've got a datawindow with 3 DropDownDW's.  I can't retrieve the drop-downs until after the parent dw is retrieved.  The Auto Retrieve is checked OFF on all three .  In the parent DW's RetrieveEnd event I've got the following code: ll_TmdeI...
Hi all, From another post, I learned that the iNet object is now obsolete.  How do I open a file in a web-browser using HttpClient object? Is the even possible, or do I need to use the WebBrowser object? I don't need to do it now, but would like to...
Hi all, I need to loop through a few records and if all conditions are met, run a program.  This works fine for one record.  The program I'm running requires user interaction.  Is there a way to wait for the other program to close before moving to t...
Hi all, So my Beta Tester found something strange (and unacceptable) in one of my windows.  In the app, there are 4 windows each with a folder object. Each folder object is inherited from the pfc's u_tab object. This strange behavior is only happeni...
Hi all, Just curious how everyone is incorporating Help Topic in their app.  About 20 years ago, we used RoboHelp, but I haven't maintained it since then... and don't even know where the Help file we created is.   Embarrassing.  Creating and maintai...
Hi all, I need to be able to re-arrange rows on my dw with dragdrop.  This works fine in my legacy code.  I'm using PB2021 and PFC 12.5 .    My dw has row select service on, one row at a time.  When I set the dw DragAuto option ON, the row select d...
Hi all, I'm still re-working a lot of my old code.  My application supports DDE for communication with 3rd party Instrumentation software mostly written in LabView (ACPs).  All of the commands are at the window level in the original code. I'm moving...
Hi all, I have a tab object inherited from u_tab: utab_folder.  Another tab object inherited from utab_folder: utab_lab.  In utab_folder I defined an instance variable u_tab itab_This, and in the constructor event of utab_folder I set the itab_This ...
Hi all, Took me a few days to get the Column sort to work, but it's working great now.  I have a question: I have a few master/detail windows.  When I click on a column label in the master dw to sort by that column, it sorts fine, but the detail dw ...
Hi all, I've got a few grid style DW's that I'd like to automatically sort when the user clicks on the column name (label). I'm using PB2021 and the latest PFC.  The dw's inherit from u_dw.  I'm turning on the sort service, but it seems to be ignore...
In my dw, I have a column that requires the user to double-click to select a value from another table (Search screen).  This works great, but before the Select response window displays, I get a message "Value Required for this Item"... twice.  How ca...
Hi all, I'm using the latest PFC in my PB2021 development.  In the u_dw object, I over-ride the anscestor pfc script for lbuttondown, lbuttonup, rbuttondown, and rbuttonup events.  In the descendent dw, I add the following code to the rbuttonup even...
Hi all, I'm testing out pfc tab objects, and I have a question about the resize service.  In the constructor event of the tab object, I enable the resize service and register all of the resizable objects: integer li_rcitab_This = this of_setresize...
Hi all, I'm upgrading most of the windows in my app, using PFC objects as much as possible.  I have 5 or 6 windows that use the tab object.  Is there a reason I would use the pfc tab object?  If I use the pfc tab object, do I also need to use the pf...
Hi all, I'm trying to use the F9 key to trigger the pfc_operators event and open the Operators response window.  I created a user event on my dw named ue_keypress with arguments key (keycode) and keyflags (unsignedlong). Right now, the event just ha...
