Description
DELETE in date editmask can leave an invalid date. For example: . In a edit-mask with mask "dd/mm/yy" the user types in '31/12/96' and then deletes the '1' of the 12 (month), resulting in '31/02/96'. Then by means of a button the contents is being read and displayed: '31 february 1996'.....?

Although this data has not been validated yet, by deleting the '1' in '12', we effectively let the user extract a valid date.

Development: Not really a bug. The editmask control cannot prevent all possible conditions and keystrokes. We would have to disable the delete key for this circumstance and that would not be appropriate

Description
If you are using a single PBD/DLL with the OLE generate registration feature, and if the LibraryList using a long filename path is greater than 129 characters on NT 4 or Win 95 the type library will NOT get generated. You will get the following error message in step 5 of 6 of the OLE automation registry generation dialog box "Error Generating Type Library".

If you are using three or more PBDs/DLLs with the OLE generate registration feature, and if the total length of the LibraryList using a long filename path is greater than 276 characters then PowerBuilder will produce an access violation (a different address is generated each time) on NT 4 and PowerBuilder will hang indefinitely on Win 95. The problem occurs on the second press of the "Proceed" command button in step 5 of 6 of the OLE automation registry generation dialog box, usually the "Proceed" command button will work first time, but not under these circumstances.
Workaround Description
 The workaround is to use a shorter path and manually alter the LibraryList in the .REG file which is produced as the result of the OLE generate registration feature.

Description
6.0.01 Beta. There is a severe memory usage and handle leak problem in 6.0.01 434 when opening a window with inheritance. The window takes about 10 seconds to open vs sub-second in 5.0.04 most often mentioned with PFC and INHERITED objects. The handle leak is about 72 handles per open of PFC's pfc_w_master. PowerBuilder returns them all when the application closes.

Development: Release note stating customers should rebuild all applications to avoid Application Painter load delays when using 6.5 Powerbuilder with older 6.0.00 applications and even when running the application.

We change the internal type definitions slightly in 6.5 and this caused ANYTHING big being opened to take longer with 6.5 - meaning an Incremental or Full Rebuild (best) was required to sync up an old application with the new type definitions.

We "recompiled" pfc for 6.5. By taking an older 6.0 application opening it with this version of PFC, then PFC (6.5) is newer than their application and this causes a mini incremental rebuild on startup. If the developer uses the original 6.0 version of PFC then everything is in sync, of course.

Any time the ancestor classes are newer than their descendants (as in this case using a 6.0 PFC application with newer 6.5 PFC pbls - as just about everything will be) then the vm must do a psuedo-rebuild of the descendants since the ancestor has changed. This happens when you open the app painter because it encounters one of these situations and then does the rebuild. So think of it like you are doing an incremental rebuild every time you open the app painter (or any painter for that matter). The difference is, this rebuild does not get saved back to disk so until you do a real one incremental rebuild, it will keep happening.

Of course, the work around is to do an incremental rebuild and it is then solved.

The problem is there is nothing we can do to solve this. This is actually correct behavior and really is a staging issue. The only way around this would be to ship the 6.0 GA version of PFC. But, of course, you can't do that because then you don't get bug fixes. Developers should do a full rebuild any time they upgrade to a newer version of PFC.

Specifies the minimum interval between garbage collection passes: garbage collection passes will not happen before this interval has expired.
Garbage collection can effectively be disabled by setting the minimum limit to a very large number. If garbage collection is disabled, unused classes will not be flushed out of the class cache.

When I pass GarbageCollectSetTimeLimit a value equal too 2147483647 (maximum value for a long) there is no effect.

The public synonyms are available, including the extended attributes, while in PB in the Database Painter and when creating a Quick Select dw. They are not available in a SQL Select datawindow.

He is trying to create datawindows with these public snyonyms and he can see them when he chooses Quick Select, including all the extended attributes, but when he tries to build a SQL Select datawindow he can see a table reference with the same name but it appears without the public qualifier and it does not have any of the extended attributes. He needs to use SQL Select because several tables are usually involved in these datawindows.

03 Mar 2004 EOL'd version. Not to be Fixed.
Description
6.0.00 Regression. Unable to directly assign an element of an array that is part of a structure that is returned by a function to a variable.

You must have an intermediate structure that will take the return from the function and then assign the array element to a variable.



This was allowed in 5.0



For example:

uf_function() returns a structure of type 'LongStructure' that contains 2 elements: One of type Long, and another of type Unbounded Long Array.

i.e.

LongStructure

long l_long

long l_longarray[]



long ll_rtnlong

ll_rtnlong = uf_function().l_long // this will work in 5.0 and 6.0

ll_rtnlong = uf_function().l_longarray[1] // this will not work in 6.0, but works in 5.0



Both of these cases in the future will generate compiler warnings. Returning a structure as part of a function call in a Powerscript statement can be dangerous since the memory could have been freed. We made several changes in 6.x and beyond to fix several memory leaks that were really these structures left lying around (which is why you could reference them as above in 5.0). Now that we clean these structures up after the function call, it's possible to get memory corruption with these types of constructs.



Correct way to code this:

long ll_rtnlong

LongStructure ll_struct



ll_struct= uf_function()

ll_rtnlong=ll_struct.l_long

ll_rtnlong=ll_structl_longarray[1]



Per PB Engineering:

The reason this worked in 5.0 was because we were not deleting the temporary struct returned from the function call in the expression myfunc().fieldname. This resulted in a memory leak which has since been fixed.



As part of fixing this memory leak, the field elements were also free'd after the expression evaluation. Because the field here is a string, the string value therefore is free'd resulting in the garbage that you see when you run this test case.



It is expected that this syntax will work for simple data types at this time, but not for strings, or arrays.



Please issue a separate change request for a compiler warning against this, to eventually be a compiler error in the next major release of PB. Due to this, I would strongly recommend to customers that they change all occurrances of this syntax to use a local struct variable, and return the function result into that. This ensures that the data will be correct and avoid any crashes until we fix the compiler to warn against this.



(CR 203969 was added to request the compiler warning.)
Workaround Description
 Create a local structure and assign it the structure that is returned by the function:



i.e.

LongStructure lstr_rtnstructure

long ll_rtnlong



lstr_rtnstructure = uf_function()

ll_rtnlong = lstr_rtnstructure.l_longarray[1] // this will work

Declaring global variable (in the Declare Global Variables dialog) of inherited PFC autoinstantiated user objects such as n_cst_color, n_cst_numerical, n_cst_datetime causes error invalid page fault 0137:111fcfbc / access violation in 0x111fcfbc when trying to run the application after a full rebuild or when doing a full rebuild in the library painter to create an executable.

This was due to some extra source for some of these objects causing a problem when made global. To permanently correct the source, you need to resave all the inherited objects using the user object painter from pfc_n_base down to the object you're using as a global. Migration, regeneration and import will not solve the problem - the source must be re-written by the painter.

In general, we don't recommend using autoinstantiated objects as global variables.

Workaround: Code the references to these objects from the application manager NVO inherited from n_cst_appmanager (which of course is not autoinstantiated). This way, there is only one global variable - everything stays encapsulated, and it is not hard to reference in code (just qualify everything with gnv_app.reference)

Description
Regression from PB 5.0 for all builds of 6.0/6.01 tested GA through build 444. Customer reported as P1.

The dll's being left in memory is happening on all platforms tested, WIN95, NT 4.0 and WIN 3.11 platforms. Extensive testing was done with WIN95 as this is the platform that this customer is using.

When the customer runs a 16 bit exe with datawindows or userobjects with datawindows on them PB is leaving 11 - 16 bit dll's in memory. When the customer then tries to run a 32 bit application he is receiving an illegal page fault. Also trying to rerun the 16 bit application or returning to the 32 development environment causes gpf.

After testing this issue out I found the problem to exhibit itself in different ways depending on what I tried to do next after closing out normally from a simple 16 bit executable. I also tried this with both machine code and pcode with the same results. The PB 6.0 exe leaves the following 11 dlls in memory: ole2.dll,ole2disp.dll, ole2nls.dll, pbbgr60w.dll, pbdwe60w.dll, pboui60w.dll, pbvbx60x.dll, pbvm60w.dll, storage.dll, typelib.dll, unidrv.dll. Furthermore, when I tried to unload the dlls if I unload pbdwe60w.dll all of the other 10 dll's also get unloaded but if I try to unload pbvm60w.dll then pbbgr60w.dll and pbdwe60w.dll were still left in memory.


Workaround:

Declare as external functions:
SUBROUTINE FreeLibrary(uint libhandle) LIBRARY "Krnl386.exe"
FUNCTION int GetModuleHandle(string modname) Library "Krnl386.exe"
Script in Close Event of Application:
uint l_handle
l_handle = GetModuleHandle("pbdwe60w.dll") // This can be any dll or library that is loaded into memory.
FreeLibrary(l_handle)

Tested and reproduced with Pb 5.0.04/PB 6.0 GA and 6.0.01 build 444.

Trying to delete or re-enter a new date on a highlighted editmask column with either Center or Right alignment that is only partially visible because the column is too narrow results in an illegal page fault or a seemingly infinite loop. Left (default) and justify alignment appear to not exhibit the problem.

With the infinite loop when I hit Ctrl=>Alt=>Delete I got a messagebox with "The system is dangerously low in resources. Would you like to terminate the following application? accompanied by the title of the window. "

Illegal page faults I received on my machine : PB 6.0 GA build 251 @ 0137:1113c9cd
PB 6.0.01 Build 444 @ 0137:1111ef1b

Description
If you change the name of a tab control (eg tab_1 -> tab_10) on a custom visual uo which has been inherited from, that change passes down correctly to the descendant when it's saved.

But. Change the name of the tab control in the ancestor object again and at the same time add a couple of comments to a tabpage in the tab control and this is the error which appaers in the descendant when trying to open and save for a second time...

Object: u_descendant
tabpage_1 Class Declaration
(0001): Error C0001: Illegal data type: tab_1

The only way to get this change into the descendant is export, edit and import the descendant object.

This can be reproduced with any control embedded in the tab control - reproduced with tabpages, datawindow controls, command button.

The important combination is
Change name of parent control (tab_1) once, allow changes to be saved in descendant
Change parent control name again AND add some script to an embedded control (or tabpage).
Workaround Description
 Export the descendant object
Edit the source file manually to force the name change
Import again.

24 Sep 1998 Not a Bug
Description
Originally bug 41584. If an EditMask on a DataWindow column contains one # to the left of the decimal point (#.## or ##.##), no data can be entered into the column. Using the same EditMask on an EditMask control, the behavior is wrong, as well.

If you highlight all the data by doubleclicking and click on the DELETE button and tab off, you get "item does not pass validation test"

Development: Not a bug. It works this way because a single decimal point is not a valid number. When first painted we will paint a single "." but once data is entered or the contents of the editmask control the data window engine will insist on a valid number being there. One workaround would be to define the edit mask as #.00, and define a format display of #.##, define the column to "Use Format". Then, when the column has focus, the column will display .00 but, when it does not have focus it will display "."

Description
If you try and enter a date using the European date format dd/mm/yy, in preview or runtime mode, PowerBuilder will give you the following DataWindow error message "item '29/03/98' does not pass validation test." If you typed in 03/29/98, then there is no problem.

If you place a command button on a window which contained the following script: MessageBox("Today's Date",string(today())), when this is executed the messagebox will display today's date e.g. 06/22/98

If you edit the .WindU file and scroll to the [intl] section, you can see the date format which is used.

Here are the initial settings:

SShortDate=M/d/yy
SLongDate=dddd, MMMM dd, yyyy

If you now change the above to European date format i.e.

SShortDate=d/m/yy
SLongDate=dddd, MMM, yyyy

Now if you execute MessageBox("Today's Date",string(today())), this will return e.g. 22/06/98. Which is what you would expect.

If you now retrieve some information from your database via your datawindow, which contains a datetime column, the dates would be displayed in European format. Which is what you would expect.

If you try and enter a date using the European date format dd/mm/yy, in preview or runtime mode, PowerBuilder will give you the following DataWindow error message "item '29/03/98' does not pass validation test." If you typed in 03/29/98, then there is no problem, UNTIL you tabbed off the column. The date gets converted into European format i.e. 29/03/98.
Workaround Description
 Place an edit mask of DD/MM/YY on the datetime column, then Powerbuilder will accept the European dateformat. The only problem is that PowerBuilder will display 00/00/00 by default when a new column is inserted.

Description
6.5.00 Regression. The Page() computed field in a footer of a datawindow with a group is broken when the report has "Reset Page on Group Break" set and the report is in print preview mode.

The settings that fail:

New Page on Group Break (ON)
Reset Page Number on Group Break (ON) <----- This is what is broken.

This allows things like

Page 1 of 2 - Page 1 for value 100
Page 2 of 2 - Page 2 for value 100

Page 1 of 3 - Page 1 for value 200
Page 2 of 3 - Page 2 for value 200
Page 3 of 3 - Page 3 for value 200

What happens now:

Page 1 of 2 - Page 1 for value 100
Page 2 of 2 - Page 2 for value 100

Page 3 of 3 - Page 1 for value 200
Page 4 of 3 - Page 2 for value 200
Page 5 of 3 - Page 3 for value 200

Workaround: Placing the datawindow in a composite will show the Page() correctly as the groups break and continue from page to page.

Description
If a change is made in the database painter (in the table painter) to a column's extended attribute such as 'Justification' the column's extended attribute for 'Case' is changed even though this was not requested nor available for change in the table painter.

Put on a trace and you see that the table pbcatcol is being changed for this table/column for the column when you only change the justification attribute...

pbc_case from the value 27 (upper) to the value 0 (lower)

Would like this value not to be touched in PBCATCOL if it hasn't been changed in the painter
Workaround Description
 Right mouse button on the column on the graphic representation of the table in database painter
Click 'Display' tab and change column properties there.

Description
In an N-Up datawindow, while trying to highlight a computed field via SelectRow in script, the text color changes to white and the columns are not highlighted. So if the datawindow background is white, they "disappear". True even when using [0], [1], etc to ensure that it is clear which row of data the computed field should be associated with.

Possible workaround: perform calculations on the back end if possible, and return as part of the result set. Then the calculated data
will be treated as regular columns by the nup datawindow, and SelectRow will work properly.
Workaround Description
 If possible, perform any necessary calculations on the back end and return them as part of the datawindow result set. They are then just part of the data, and SelectRow works fine on regular columns for Nup datawindows.

Description
Browsing in several areas of development (Library painter, File Editor) causes a working directory change that often causes applications not to run correctly afterwards since it no longer can find supporting ".ini" or other files. This has been an annoyance since 3.0 and is reported as a frustration by many customers.

GetFileOpenName() and GetFileSaveName() have the same results at runtime. Once the working directory has changed, finding .ini files with ProfileString() calls often fail.

Workaround: Reset the working directory by opening (expanding) a PBL in the directory that you want to be your working directory.

If instead of picking a choice from the dddw the user types a non-valid entry they initially receive the proper PB generated Messagebox - DataWindow Error Specified criteria is invalid! They can hit OK but at this point they will be trapped in an infinite loop that they can only get out of by shutting down the application using CTRL=>ALT=>DELETE. Initially it will let them hit cancel but trying to proceed to make a correct choice will put the user into the infinite loop.

Description
The problem has been reported in the past (PTs 465170, 333235, 460101, 314405, 269665).

When a field within a datawindow is too wide or extends too far to the right for the size of paper to be printed on, the datawindow displays a second empty page regardless of the content of this field at runtime. Microhelp at bottom of datawindow in preview mode says "Horiz page 1 of 2"

Instead of taking the runtime width and calculating when a second page is needed the datawindow seems to base its calculation of the static width of the field as defined in the datawindow painter so it shows an empty page when this is not necessary.

For example a string field has a max width of 50 chars, when there is a string longer than 25 the field will not fit on 1 page so it prints on 2. But when this same field only has 1 char it still shows a second page even though it is blank. Customer would like the datawindow not to show this page when it's not needed by checking the runtime width of the column/field and not width as drawn in the datawindow painter (which is always the same, in this case 50)
Workaround Description
 Move column to the left or reduce its width either in the painter or dynamically.

A set of stacked reports in a composite datawindow does not paginate correctly. The second report on the stack always starts on the second page. In 5.0, if you had:

Composite Parent
Header report
Composite Report #2

The "Composite Report #2" would start immediately after the Header Report on the FIRST page. (assuming the header report was less than 1 page).

Now, in 6.5.00, when previewing or printing the report, if the entire "composite report #2" does not fit onto the remainder of the FIRST page, it is started on the SECOND page.

Workaround: Place the Parent composite report above into another composite report and by adding one level, it previews and prints as expected.

Description
In an editmask control defined as mm/dd/yyyy, enter 12/31/1999 and tab away. Click back on the editmask control and place the cursor between the digits of the year so that it is between the 1 and the 2. Hit the backspace key and the 12 will change to 02. You can now tab off of the control and the date that remains will be 02/31/1999.

This may be correct behavior since at this point it is pretty difficult to anticipate what the user's next move will be, much like the situation
where a spin control allows invalid dates, but user would like development determination.

PER DEVELOPMENT:
This works as designed. The editmask control does not check valididity when it loses focus. The DataWindow engine does check valididity when tabbing from one column to another which is why it fails there. Users should check themselves in the LoseFocus event.
Workaround Description
 Use a datawindow editmask control, and/or add date validation code to the control.
