Coming from Powerbuilder

P: n/a
LC
I am beginning to learn C#. net after being in Powerbuilder for over 10
years.
For those C# gurus who know Powerbuilder I have a couple of questions:

Does a datawindow relate to a datagrid or is there something better?

I have heard of something called 'WinForm'. Does that relate?

Do you have any suggestions to help me transition from PB?
(I mainly develop windows application using SQLServer backend).

Thanks.

The datagrid is a very poor version of a PB datawindow.
I have heard of something called 'WinForm'. Does that relate?
WinForm stands for Windows form (as opposed to Web forms), and it is the
form where you place controls (such as a datagrid)
Do you have any suggestions to help me transition from PB?


Since the PB guys that I know canīt live without the datawindow, you can try
the Sybase Datawindow for .NET ;-)

I don't have any personal experience in PowerBuilder, but two of my partners
(Barry Gervin and Dave Lloyd) do. They put together presentation describing
the process a couple of years ago. You can find the slides at
http://www.objectsharp.com/articles/...NET/slides.ppt. As well, they
wrote an article on the migration process at
http://www.objectsharp.com/articles/pump.

As well, they are normally quite willing to answer any specific questions if
you want to email them. Their email addresses can be found on their profile
page at http://www.objectsharp.com/barry and http://www.objectsharp.com/dave.
