Create Object Programmatically with Powerbuilder - Part 1

In Powerbuilder, we can create an object programmatically, means that you can create whenever you need or conditionally.

In this first part, I trying to explain how to create "static" picture object when user clicking the button. Static mean that we only create the object, without script associated inside the object. The function that will be used it's called: openuserobject

For detail explanation of openuserobject function, please see the official help of Powerbuilder. 

First, create a button, and type this follow script inside Clicked event.
picture p_2  // declare the picture variable
p_2 = create picture  // create the picture object

p_2.x = 100  // x position of the object
p_2.y = 100  // y position of the object
p_2.height = 250 // height value of the object
p_2.width = 250 // with value of the object
p_2.picturename = "redalert.bmp" // name of the picture inc full path

parent.openuserobject( p_2, "p_2", 100, 100) // ok, let's create the object

Click and Drag with Powerbuilder

This article will show you how to make an object to be click and drag capable in Powerbuilder. In this case, I'm using Powerbuilder 9.0 and Picture Object. In this version, I found DragAuto property in the list of the picture property, one that I can't found in version 6.5. I'm not sure, since when Sybase added this property.

The Drag Auto property determines whether PowerBuilder puts the control into drag mode automatically. If the property is enabled, when the user clicks the control and starts dragging it, PowerBuilder puts the control in drag mode. Clicking the control triggers a DragDrop event, not a Clicked event.

If Drag Auto is not enabled, then when the user clicks the control, PowerBuilder does not put the control in drag mode. You have to call the Drag function to put the control into drag mode.

In the Window, put 1 Picture object, and set the name of the file, and turn on the DragAuto option, in other tabs of property, and named it as p_1

Add the following script in p_1's clicked event

At the p_1's dragleave event, put this following script:
this.x = parent.pointerx( ) - (this.width / 2)
this.y = parent.pointery( ) - (this.height / 2)

And finally, at p_1's dragdrop event, add this following script:

Printing shrink in IE7 and IE8

Some of my users facing the font shrink-ed when they tried to print the web page with Internet Explorer (IE) version 7 or 8.

To solve this case, if you are using version 8, make sure the option Shrink to Fit option in Page Setup menu, in your IE, is unchecked.

If you are using Internet Explorer version 7, you need to add the Registry Key by doing the steps below:
On the command prompt, type the following statement:

reg add "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\MAIN\FeatureControl\FEATURE_STF_Scale_Min" /v iexplorer.exe /t REG_DWORD /d 100 /f

Click OK to confirm when warning window is showed.

Or, download this file, unzip the file, then run the file inside.

Nintendo 3DS Software Estimated Price

Since Nintendo hasn't given any official word on this subject yet, Joystiq was kind enough to look into retailer price listings for 3DS software. From what we're seeing, it looks like anywhere from $40-50 a pop for a 3DS game card - or in other words games priced at relatively the same cost as Wii games. Now, considering we're getting more for our money, this certainly isn't surprising, but with game prices climbing this high it's hard to say that handheld gaming is shaping up to continue to be the affordable alternative to consoles.

[Updated] Toshiba Folio AS100 Short Review

My last post about Toshiba Folio AS100 review said that the camera quality is poor. Now I want to make a correction that the camera quality is fair for 1,3 MB resolution. All because my boss put the screen protector which block the webcam.

When I tried to remove the screen protector, the camera work well with the fair quality.

Also I have more times to try the Folio. Since the Toshiba doesn't provide the Android Market application yet (confirmed by the Toshiba, but they said they will launch the Android Market for the Folio somewhere in January 2011), you can try to download the applications with the 3rd party applications like Camangi Market or via

I've tried to install some games and Youtube viewer, some of them work well, some are not.

Just got Toshiba Folio AS100 from my boss, the first Android tablet from Toshiba.

First impression, it quite good design compared to another tablets. I only have around half hour to try the Folio

The weight is light, according to Toshiba's website, officially they said is around 760 gr, is more light than iPad. From the dimension, is not quite far from iPad. The different is the type of the screen which is the Folio come with wide screen mode.

The touch screen is more sensitive than the other android tablet product, specially if compared with the china's android tablet market. But still below the iPad technology.

One of the main disadvantage from Folio is there's no Android Market Application. That's made me difficult to try to download the application from officially.
