PB Enhancement Requests – 2013-01-10

Hi Everyone;

   Please find below, the first and latest new feature requests that have been added (so far this year) to the ISUG product enhancement tracking system for PowerBuilder. ISUG has been maintaining the enhancement forum for all Sybase products for over 15 years now!

Number Enhancement Description
3716 GenerateResultSet Function in PB.NET The GenerateResultSet function is available in PB12.5 Classic, but not in PB.NET.
3715 nvl()

Add nvl() function to PowerScript (like in Oracle).

3714 iif()

Add iif() function to PowerScript (like in Visual Basic).

3713 DW Spy DataWindow Spy is a utility which gives PowerBuilder programmers a magic  ability to quickly and easily see hidden DataWindow information in  run-time without using the debugger.

  If you are an ISUG member, please login, comment and most importantly vote for these enhancements. This will provide SAP with better feedback in order to prioritize new feature development work.

Enhancement Process:

Regards … Chris

      Hi Chris,

      nvl() could be very useful in DW expression functions.

      nvl (), llike in O*r*le?

      IFNULL() should be SAPs answer.

      My first impression of your title "PB Enhancement" was, that this stuff is currently implemented by the PowerBuilder Dev Team and this is an actual status from the  labs.

      But these are only "PowerBuilder Enhancement Requests".
