I am working in PowerBuilder 10.5 and have a grid datawindow where I
want to add a text object in the footer. I want the text to display
across multiple columns in the grid. At first when I add the text
object to the grid footer, the text stays in just one column. Then I
found the "movable" and "resizeable" properties in the Position tab,
and in the painter am able to resize across multiple columns.
However, when I go to run the grid datawindow, the text squeezes up
into one column. I can resize and move it while its running but
that's not what I want. I want it to display across all columns on
start up. Anyone have any ideas?

you can probably modify the width at run time and base its width on
the x+width of the column you want to right align it with.
something like;

dw_1.modify('footer_object.width='+string(&
long(describe('right_object.x'))+&
long(describe('right_object.width'))-&
long(describe('footer_object.x'))&
))

Or... just use a composite report to display the header and footer...
