Display text at any Angle
New to PowerBuilder 4 was an attribute of the datawindow called font.escapement. This new attribute is the angle you want your text at display at.

To display text vertically you would set the escapement attribute to 900 ( 10 * the angle ). You can achieve some really cool text effects with this attribute.

You will not see the effect in the Datawindow painter, but preview your Datawindow and the text is displayed at the correct angle!
