When the beta for PB.NET (PowerBuilder 12) started I was pretty excited to get my hands on it. This version comes with a whole new IDE and with it many new features.

This will essentially reduce their size, allowing you to upload them to your favorite photo sharing site much quicker. In addition to scaling the images this solut... (more)

Office 2003 Toolbar: A New Look For Your Old PowerBuilder App

There's a reason why software developers like Microsoft update the look of their applications every two years. It shows the consumer that something has changed and therefore they need to upgrade, at least that's my opinion. If this is true, I can only presume that presentation plays a vital role in the sale of commercial applications. If you're not writing commercial applications, then it's just a cool thing to do.

Advanced DataWindow Filtering with PowerFilter

As we all know, the DataWindow is a very powerful and flexible control used for data presentation and manipulation. For the most part, the features that you get out of the box allow you to create some very impressive applications. With that said, there is always room for improvement. Fortunately for us, the DataWindow was built with flexibility in mind. By taking advantage of this flexibility, we can extend the DataWindow to do almost anything we want. In this article, I'm going to introduce you to PowerFilter, a control developed by Jim Reese and available for purchase from www... (more)
