Have you ever seen a form that has its own microhelp that changes when a field gets focus? I'm sure you have. You might see a window and at the bottom of the window is a line that says, "OPTIONAL - Enter the employee birth date," when a field is entered. We are going to create a simple automated solution that will allow you to carry the microhelp along in the DataWindow.

As programming languages and applications architectures have come and gone, we are hard-pressed to find an environment as productive to develop in as PowerBuilder," wrote Al Hilwa, Program Director for Applications Development Software, IDC. "What's more, PowerBuilder has evolved aggressively as these shifts have taken place. In the case of PowerBuilder, Sybase's plan of record is to continue to ensure that developers are able to fully leverage both the Visual Studio IDE and the .NET runtime while retaining their invested skills and the power and productivity of PowerBuilder.
Sybase PowerBuilder White Paper


The annual Novalys Powerbuilder survey results are in. Thanks to the participation of the community of PB developers, we've got a look at the trends. Not only did we look at the current use of PowerBuilder but we also analyzed the impact of Java and .NET on PowerBuilder users. Java/JEE technology has been used widely for many years but Microsoft uses all its marketing power to impose its platform, rallying the Sybase capabilities to its cause

What are the most awaited developments of PB? What proportion of PB teams adopted .NET technology in 2010? Who's still using PB5? Who has moved to PB12? Where do you fit in?
Take the 2011 PowerBuilder survey and see the results from 2010!
