Wouldn't it be acceptable to create a datawindow in your app and change it programmatically?

What needs to be dynamic?

Yes, it is possible using the OpenUserObject window function.

windowname.OpenUserObject ( userobjectvar, userobjecttype {, x, y } )

You have to store the userobjectvar variable for further refference to the opened DataWindow control. The opened object can be in fact any descendant of dragobject - a command button, picture or datawindowcontrol. You only have to specify the type of object in string userobjecttype.

Here is the example:

let there be an instance variable idw_data of type datawindow, that will serve us as a refference to the newly opened DataWindow.

somewhere in the script execute:

w_main.OpenUserObject(idw_data,"datawindow",100,200)

do idw_data.settransobject(), idw_data.retrieve() or what ever you want to do.
