As of PowerBuilder 11.5, DataWindow columns have been able to have background gradients. In that gradients can be data-driven by expressions, this tip will review how columns can emulate bar graphs.
Here is an easy to implement service geared towards developers who are working on complex, many layered applications.
Here is a way to build a grid datawindow which contains columns corresponding to an unknown number of data elements.
Perhaps you’ve enabled the titlebar and control menu of a DataWindow control. You may even want the users to be able to minimize/maximize and reposition the control at runtime.
Here’s a DataWindow tip…and a half.
Thank you Sandy Barletta!
Just after the earth began to cool (I think it was in the PB3 time frame), I discovered the DWSyntax tool created by Sandy.
I'm doing some work on an application to aid in the mass update of various datawindow attributes. It's not rocket science since you are dealing with a series of text files and doing some basic 'find and replace' operations.
I needed a way to build a string in a loop for import into a DataWindow but speed was important.
