You can configure PowerBuilder to start with an open workspace. You can also have the painters you were using open at startup, with the last script you touched open at the last line you edited

This table shows these and other new startup features:

To do this

Do this

Start PowerBuilder with the last workspace you used open

Select Tools>System Options from the menu bar and select the Reopen Workspace on Startup checkbox on the Workspaces tab

Start PowerBuilder with painters and scripts open

Select Tools>System Options from the menu bar and select the Reopen Workspace on Startup and Reload Painters When Opening Workspace checkboxes on the Workspaces tab

When you open PowerBuilder, any painters and editors that were open when you closed PowerBuilder are reloaded. If you edited a script before closing PowerBuilder, the Script view is scrolled to show the last line you edited

Reload Painters When Opening Workspace applies whenever you open a workspace, whether or not you select Reopen Workspace on Startup

Start PowerBuilder from Windows Explorer or a command line

Double-click a workspace file in Windows Explorer. Workspaces have a .pbw extension

Start PowerBuilder from a shell with two new options: /workspace (or /w) and /target (or /t). You can also build and deploy a workspace from the command line. For more information, see "Building and deploying from a command line"
