Schultz’s PowerBuilder Notes

DataWindow Plug-in


Haven’t looked at this for a while. Notes go back to PB 6 or so, things may have changed

  • Rich client view and printing
  • No security issues on client side
  • No database connection used
  • Support for WinNT, Win95, Win 3.1, and Macintosh

Weakness

  • Update not available. Changes can not be sent back to the client
  • Changes can not be made without saving the file and then using a separate tool to read and edit.
  • Reports are canned, not created on demand, no real time db connection
  • DataWindow plug-in DLL must be installed on the client machine.
  • No support for Rich Text presentation style
  • No support for UNIX or other platforms.
