Hi Mahendra,

Appeon have added a new feature of DataWindow SaveAs PDF
function in 6.2 newest version. Appeon can directly support
this feature and user needn't install any other software(In
the PowerBuilder need install the Ghostscript). Appeon can
support the SaveAs PDF scripts as below:
integer dwcontrol.SaveAs (string filename, PDF!, true)
integer dwcontrol.SaveAs ( )
I suggest you contact your Sybase sales representative for
Appeon 6.2 latest EBF.
