New properties have been added to DataWindow objects and some existing properties have been modified to enhance their portability to the Web.
The FileName property for a button control on a DataWindow object now lets you use a GIF or JPEG file for a button picture, as well as a bitmap. New default GIF pictures for use with the DefaultPicture property for button controls on a Web DataWindow are provided in a JAR file that must be uncompressed and deployed to your Web server.
The Printer property has been modified to allow you to set a printer (other than the system default device) for your DataWindow reports.
The dddw.AutoRetrieve property allows you to retrieve a parent DataWindow without retrieving a child DataWindow at the same time.
The HTML.ValueIsHTML property allows the contents of text objects, columns, and computed fields in a Web DataWindow to be generated as HTML.The HTML.AppendedHTML property is used to specify HTML element attributes and event actions to add to the HTML rendered for Web DataWindow controls.
The HTMLGen.NetscapeLayers property lets you format the DataWindow with absolute positioning for Netscape browsers, instead of in an HTML table. When you set this property to TRUE, the DataWindow displays similarly in Netscape and Internet Explorer browsers.
The HTMLGen.TabIndexBase property lets you set the starting tab order number for a Web DataWindow. This property is useful for a Web page with multiple Web DataWindows when you can tab between columns of the DataWindows. Setting this property has no effect on page functionality when the page is viewed in a browser that does not support the tab index attribute.
