Will all DW types be supported in webforms?
Are they going to be XHTML web DW?

Thanks

Rich Text and OLE will not be supported. Composite and Nested reports
may be supported but that hasn't been confirmed. You will have the
choice of using the HTML Web DataWindow or XHTML Web DataWindow just
like in PB 10.

The only benefits that DW.NET will bring over MS webforms is composite,
nested, n-up and other special reports.
I would agree that richtext & OLE.
But if it is not going to support composite & nested...hmm how well DW.NET
is going to be a winner???

I have to disagree with you there. The Web DataWindow offers superior
presentation capabilities compared to the Datagrid. Its also a lot
easier to use than webform controls and it handles the data changes
automatically. The amount of code required is a lot smaller than with
traditional ASP .NET options.

N-Up will be supported and composite and nested may be if they can be
squeezed in and any technical issues overcome. But I wouldn't write
off the webforms support just because those features might not be
available.

I am living in WA, Needless to say I am trying to put the positives of
DW.NET.
One of the great argument now is that the existing DW could be a winner in
reporting where .NET & Crystal Report is THE reporting world.
I totally agree with you and I love DW and PB as such since '95.
If DW.NET needs to compete as a control tool then the benefits of control
tool needs to be there rather than the programming benefits.
Please see that the squeeze happens for composite & nested report.

VSV
PS: I am pitching against Crystal Reports, .NET & Cold Fusion & it is a PB
to .NET migrating world.
