Dw-eXtreme develops sophisticated datawindow and datawindow.net based presentation components for the
Powerbuilder, Pocketbuilder and .net communities. Our components harness the powerful presentation capabilities of the datawindow control, developed by Sybase, to create Extreme Datawindows.
These capabilities help developers incorporate sophisticated graphical user displays that allow users to view and manipulate data in a more simple and intuitive manner.
Extreme datawindow components are developed using only the Powerbuilder
datawindow component and its native functionality and powerscript. No
third party tools such as OCX controls or frameworks are used. All
input and manipulation is intuitively mouse driven. This combined with the
rich graphic presentation styles makes for a more enriching user
experience. A variety of components are currently available that cover a
number of business needs.
Currently available datawindow components:
PB10.5 version of the Planner component demo available.
(Demo) is used to display time based data associated
with scheduling, project management and asset management in a variety of
industries. Data is displayed in a manner similar to a gantt chart.
Planner v.2.0 extends the functionality of the planner component to the web. This version of the planner component is
fully Appeon complient. The web version and the windows version of the planner are generated from the same Powerbuilder
files and include identical functionality and appearance. Compare the browser version and the windows version.
Please try the web version on the Appeon Demo website. To run the demo You must create
an account with Appeon and configure your IE browser to the following
(Demo!), like the planner, is used to display
time based data associated with scheduling, project management and appointments
in a variety of industries. Data is displayed in a manner similar to the
work week view in Microsoft Outlook calendar.
Graphical Network editor
(Demo!) is used to build networks or workflows from a
variety of user defined node and and connections palettes. Workflow,
schematic and network presentations can be visualized using the Graphical
Network editor component.
Org Chart builder
(Demo!) enables the user to graphically generate a
hierarchical chart from a user defined list simply using drag and drop
Stock Chart component is a stock charting component that
displays stock price and volume information. Data can be displayed in a
variety of formats such as candle, point and line charts. Each row on the
datawindow displays the entire chart so multiple charts can be displayed on one
datawindow. The charts are built dynamically and adjust for the
differences in minimum and maximum prices of different stocks.
Custom components such as the railyard, timeline and store shelf
components can be rapidly derived
from the existing dw-eXtreme components. These component can be customized
and delivered to you. See examples of these custom
All dw-eXtreme objects use data import datastores that load the visual
datawindow components. These import datastores can also be used as the source for
reporting purposes. None of the components connect to a database.
All examples are run from flat files. You may source these from databases or
Not Just a Component...
When you purchase a dw-eXtreme datawindow component you get the component
embedded in a demo application. Since the components are delivered as
source code you are receiving examples of the advanced coding techniques used to
create extreme datawindows. Developers can learn these techniques and
apply them to there own development efforts and create other advanced
For instance the planner component is delivered with a datawindow based
treeview in the demo application. The GNE and Org Chart components
contains advanced drag and drop of graphical objects from one datawindow to
another. The appointment object includes a datawindow based calendar
