How to Hidden DataWindows
Testing DataStore Controls and Hidden DataWindows
15-5
For example, if the value of Background.Color is an expression, an Object
Properties verification point returns both:
The Background.Color property with a value that is the actual result of the
expression.
The Background.Color.Expression property with a value that is the expression.
(The value of an .Expression property is always a string.)
Expressions that are used against objects within the detail band of a DataWindow are
reevaluated for every row. When Robot returns the values of such properties, they
are based on the state of the current row of the DataWindow. If you select a different
row and recapture the properties, you may get different values.
Testing DataStore Controls and Hidden DataWindows
You can test the properties and data of PowerBuilder objects even though they are
not visible in the application. By selecting from a list of all objects on the Windows
desktop, you can test:
Nonvisual DataStore controls. (DataStore controls always appear as direct
children of the Windows desktop.)
Hidden DataWindows (Visible property is False).
