SAP PowerBuilder 12.6 dettaglio delle novità (in inglese)

It really needs no other introduction than that. It’s still the fastest and easiest component for data access around. You may have been required to supplement your PowerBuilder development with C# or Java over the past few years, and if you’re like everyone else in that boat, you’ve missed the DataWindow. Badly.
We’ve added many enhancements to the beloved DataWindow in this release. There are new features for the Win32 ataWindow and there are new features for the completely re-written WPF DataWindow. Let’s start with what’s new for .NET. We’ve added the ability to access the data in all the DataWindow buffers while in the debugger. Yes, we cheered for this one, too. We’ve also added auto-size width functionality to complement the auto-size height that we’ve always had, so now there is Auto-Width column support for the Grid style DataWindows. And, we’ve updated the graph functionality with a sophisticated new Candlestick presentation style, something used extensively in the financial and medical industries. We’ve also enhanced other DataWindow functionality as well tomake your life even easier, so you can bring your applications to market even faster. We’ve added AutoWidth Column for the grid style for the Win32 DataWindow too, as well as new properties for DataWindow Controls, support for RTF, images, and user-drawn controls. And, you can now share datasources with a .NET application. Many customers need to build applications that interact with a variety of datasources, and now you can share an ADO .NET connection between a Windows 32 app and a .NET application. Just because we are focusing on .NET doesn’t mean we’ve forgotten that a large segment of our customer base is still committed to supporting and using many Win32 features, including the DataWindow.

Core Development Technology, Geared Up.
