(Former PB programmer / migrating to C#)

Am I able to create an ancestor DataWindow or Datastore object which can be
inherited on, similar to creating a u_dw or n_ds in PB/PFC?

At the very least, right now I have to define my library list each time I
create a new datawindow control on a Form. It seems like there ought to be
a way to define this one time at some base level. Is that possible?

Forgive me if the question is extraordinarilly simplistic; I've just
acquired C#/dw.net and everything is new to me.

You can create an ancestor DataWindow control or Datastore that can be
inherited from just like any other .NET control. You should check the
.NET documentation on how to do this.

As for assigning the librarylist property you can either do it
programmatically or through the property. There isn't any way to
assign it at a base level since each DataWindow could come from
different .pbls.

We are exploring options on removing the .pbl requirement in a future
version of the DataWindow but we don't have any timeframe for when
that might occur.

Thanks. To tag along on this topic, I'm trying to import datawindows from
an old PB app. I have a PBL that has nothing but my datawindows. However,
I cannot figure out how to add that PBL to a Datawindow Designer Project.
One thing I noticed is that if I find my pbl using the Library Painter none
of the datawindow objects are displayed; so I can't even copy them. I
supposed I could export them all and import, but I figured there ought to be
an easier way. Any tips?

Right click on the project in the treeview (top level icon) and select
properties. You can add the .pbl to the library list here. DataWindow
Designer should then detect that the DataWindows need to be migrated
and go ahead and migrate them.
