i created a datawindow object called 'd_custlist'
i created a window called 'showme'
i created a datawindow control on the window and attached to it the datawindow object.

when i login to the database the form shows up but none of the data showed.
it just shows me the headers i created when i paint the object.

help please...anyone knows what i have to do to see the results on the datawindow control on the form?

From the PB Help File

SQLCA.DBMS = ProfileString("myapp.ini", &
        "Database", "DBMS", " ")

SQLCA.DbParm = ProfileString("myapp.ini", &
        "Database", "DbParm", " ")

// Connect to database

CONNECT USING SQLCA;

// Test whether the connect succeeded

IF SQLCA.SQLCode <> 0 THEN
        MessageBox("Connect Failed", &
            "Cannot connect to database." &
            + SQLCA.SQLErrText)

        RETURN

END IF

Open(w_main)

To continue the example, the open event for w_main sets the transaction object for the DataWindow control dw_main to SQLCA and retrieves rows from the database. If no rows were retrieved or if there is an error (that is, the return value is negative), the script displays a message to the user:

long ll_rows

dw_main.SetTransObject(SQLCA)

ll_rows = dw_main.Retrieve()

IF ll_rows < 1 THEN MessageBox( &

        "Database Error", &

        "No rows retrieved.")
