When using InfoMaker (preferably) or PowerBuilder
to construct/maintain an application,
what mechanism is available to a developer
to revise a query definition, without causing
a need to subsequently re-create any form (datawindow)
that incorporates the query?
For instance, if users who previously had wanted their
query to be sorted 'ascending' now want their query
to be sorted 'descending', I find that I must not only
redefine the query itself, but also construct a new
form (if in IM) or datawindow (in PB), rather than being
able to rely on IM or PB itself to reference the redefined
'version' of the query. This in any case is the default
behavior I have seen in IM/PB release 4.0.4,
and cannot find any documentation about how to work around
this behavior. Suggestions anyone?
Each form itself takes a couple hours to create so I am not
eager to re-create them from scratch.
