AutoScript Enabling PowerBuilder Built-In Commands

** Hot Tip **

AutoScript Enabling Built-In Functions


     The PowerBuilder IDE has a great Auto-Scripting feature. However, it does not address PB's built-in commands. Sometimes also referred to as Global Functions. These commands though are used in a plethora of places in the average App.  Without AutoScript support though, it can be a laborious journey through the PB Help sub-system to quickly extract what you need to know.

     Here is a video little tip though that can auto-script enable all of PB's built-in commands (functions) for your entire App in just a few seconds ...

STD FC's - Your PFC Replacement!

I got the job!


     Its always nice once in a while when your all your hard work pays off when you receive a nice comment about your work or product. In this case it was a nice text message the other day from a PowerBuilder friend of mine who stated ....


    The Software Tool & Die frameworks that I originally built in 1992 for PowerBuilder and later on, added support for PocketBuilder, PB.Net, EAServer, Appeon Web and Appeon Mobile, continues to evolve even to this day. The goal now is to update the frameworks in time for the brand new release of Appeon PB 2017 in June, 2017!

   The frameworks even today are still being adopted by new and refactored mission critical PowerBuilder & Appeon Web/Mobile applications the world over with over 6,429  downloads in 2016! You can download them from their home on SourceForge  ... plus, they are open source, pure PowerScript, use no external DLL's & are free too!

 More Information?


Over the last 2 months of 2015, thousands of copies of PowerBuilder 2017 were pre-ordered at a very special price.

As such, Appeon are pleased to offer the PowerBuilder community a “second chance” to pre-order PowerBuilder at a big savings. If you pre-order PowerBuilder 2017 you will be entitled to the following benefits:
Don’t miss out on this last chance to pre-order PowerBuilder 2017 and save big before the regular pricing takes effect after April 30, 2017.
