PowerBuilder 2019 - Send Message Example!
Software Tool & Die Inc. (STD) are please to announce the new release of an STD Integrated Framework example application that utilizes the framework to implement O/S messaging! The Send Message feature inside PowerBuilder has been around since version 2.0. However, it is not a well documented and known feature of the PB development tool. The STD Send Message example goes even further by allowing applications to communicate across processes. The STD framework allows the PB developer to easily implement messaging and be more productive at the same time!
The Send Message example application utilizes the STD Integrated Framework (version 2019.4.0.141 released on 2019-09-30) and the newest Appeon PowerBuilder 2019 release (build 2082) to locate external applications. In turn, the framework facilitates external applications (written in almost any development language) to send messages back to PB applications.

The Integrated framework also allows you to send messages from one application to another. These PB applications can be running as either a Native, System Tray or System Task in nature.
