About DataWindow constants

About constants

This section lists the constants that are defined in the DataWindow control for values of properties and arguments for methods. Constants have both a name and a numeric value.

What values to use


In PowerBuilder, constants are defined as sets of values associated with enumerated datatypes. Values for enumerated datatypes always end with an exclamation point. When an enumerated datatype is specified as the datatype, you must use the enumerated value. You cannot use the numeric equivalent.

dw1.BorderStyle = StyleRaised!


In JavaScript, you must use the numeric value. The named values are not available.

DataWindow object properties

When setting DataWindow properties in PowerBuilder, you use the numeric value in quoted strings.

How this section is organized

This section lists the values according to the PowerBuilder enumerated datatypes, so you can see which values are available for setting a particular type of data. If you know a value's name but not the enumerated datatype it belongs to, you can find the value in the index of this book.
