Hi Markus,

Appeon Server has a special component for the implementation of the PDF
printing functionality. We do not rely on the PowerScript in the
PowerBuilder application. That's why you cannot find any script function
about it, and cannot use a button to directly perform the PDF printing.

Thanks,
Julie Jiang

Hi Markus,

I think that there was a miscommunication on this issue.

Yes, you can create a Button and name it "Create PDF" or anything else and
create the PDF by simply coding the normal dw_1.Print() PowerScript
statement. Appeon recognizes many PowerScript statements including Print()
and automatically creates your PDF for you.

You can see the code actually running on the TrySybase server at
http://www.try.sybase.com although we don't have Adobe PDF Writer installed
yet.

Regards, Rex
