Does PB v10.x or 11 provide the capability to inherit from a
DataWindow dataobject. It would be very useful to provide
this capability where we could design DW templates with
Column Header background colors, font settings, place
holders for logos etc…?

The DW Painter allows VERY limited capability to specify
Column text colors and a few other items...and set these as
your default for new DWs. This is really not very useful
especially in a team development environment.

Thanks

Jim

No. If you look at it, the DW object is really just a syntax string which is
interpreted by the DW engine.
It seems reasonable to start with a user choice of template. You should
suggest it both at ISUG and www.sybase.com right now, while 12.0 is still
malleable. That's where all the engineering effort is going - I would not
expect any new features to be added to 11.

What's the case you want to handle? I often miss this
feature because of seperating PBSELECT and design.
In this case queries can help you.
