About dynamic DataWindow processing


DataWindow objects and all entities in them (such as columns, text, graphs, and pictures) each have a set of properties. You can look at and change the values of these properties during execution using DataWindow methods or property expressions. You can also create DataWindow objects during execution.

A DataWindow object that is modified or created during execution is called a dynamic DataWindow object.

What you can do

Using this dynamic capability, you can allow users to change the appearance of the DataWindow object (for example, change the color and font of the text) or create ad hoc queries by redefining the data source. After you create a dynamic DataWindow object and the user is satisfied with the way it looks and the data that is displayed, the user can print the contents as a report.
