Power Builder 12.6 Migration :Horizontal Scroll bar not working after migration

While migrating from 12.5 to 12.6, one of our application's horizontal scroll bar does not work appropriately. When I try to scroll it to the right extreme,the scroll bar moved but the data in the window gets stuck.

When I run the same application from the work space, it runs fine. The problem arise when I try to create a package and run the application from the package.

The 12.5 package has no issue. I have tried every possible solution but it fails. I included all the dlls for 12.6 and tested the package to check whether the issue is with the dlls. Even then it fails. I tried building the work space and deploying the package several times, even this won't help me.

Could anyone let me know if similar issue is reported earlier or any solution for this issue.

    Hi Kedarnath;

    Can you tell us ...

    1) What build of PB 12.6 are you using?

    2) What MS-Windows version are you running this on?

    3) Do you have the same PB run-time DLL's with your EXE as the PB IDE?

    4) Is this a PFC application?

    5) Are you building a P-Code or M-Code EXE?

    FWIW: I have never encountered or heard of this before in PB 12.6.

    Regards ... Chris

    Hi Kedarnath -

    I have faced weirder issues like these in PB 12.6 and all I did was check out the then-latest build version, which was 4091 and it fixed all the issues and I was able to move ahead with my deployment (My build was on 3XXX, I don't remember the exact version)

    You might want to give it a try!
