Hi,

I have one column in my dw object with style as ddlb. I have not inserted any items in design time. I want to insert these items dynamically.
Please let me know the property to insert the items with display value and data value in that.

Thanks
Srinib

See SetValue, GetValue Functions

Example:
dw_employee.SetValue("emp_state", 3, "Texas")
string Status

Status = dw_employee.GetValue(7,3)

hi srinib,

u can set the values as follows....

dw_1.Object.status.Values = "Active~tA/Part Time~tP/Terminated~tT"


where,
Active,Part time and Terminated are the display values and...
A, P, T are the datavalues....and
status is the column on the dw which is ddlb....

u can use ur normal dot object notation in itemchanged or any event to get the value of column 'status'...


Cheers,
Rosh

The following statements use a SQL cursor and FETCH statement to populate the ListBox portion of a DropDownListBox style column called product_col of a DataWindow object with code table values:

integer prod_code, i = 1

string prod_name

DECLARE prodcur CURSOR FOR
            SELECT product.name, product.code
            FROM product USING SQLCA;

CONNECT USING SQLCA;

IF SQLCA.SQLCode <> 0 THEN
            MessageBox("Status","Connect Failed " &
                  + SQLCA.SQLErrText)
            RETURN

END IF

OPEN prodcur;

IF SQLCA.SQLCode <> 0 THEN
            MessageBox("Status","Cursor Open Failed " &
                  + SQLCA.SQLErrText)
            RETURN

END IF

FETCH prodcur INTO :prod_name, :prod_code;

DO WHILE SQLCA.SQLCode = 0
            dw_products.SetValue("product_col", i, &
                  prod_name + "~t" + String(prod_code))
            i = i + 1
            FETCH prodcur INTO :prod_name, :prod_code;

LOOP

CLOSE prodcur;

DISCONNECT USING SQLCA;
