Datawindow Sort

Datawindow Sort


Is there any way I can determine the current sort columns in the datawindow at runtime?  I'm using Powerbuilder 6.5.



RE: Datawindow Sort

If the sort columns are specified on a DW level:
ls_Sort = <DW Control Name>.Describe("DataWindow.Table.Sort")
(You can use DWSyntax program that comes with PowerBuilder to look up more properties of the DataWindow Object).

If u want to know the sort columns of the Select statement of the DW:
<DW Control Name>.Describe("DataWindow.Table.Select")
but you have to find the "ORDER BY" clause manually.
