Highlighting a Group Band
PowerBuilder provides nice easy to use functions for highlighting your detail band but sometimes you need to highlight a the groupband for the current row as well. To achieve this you will need to add an instance variable of type long called il_LastRow and add a dummy column to your datawindow called highlight and in the row focus changed event add the following code:

SetItem( il_LastRow, 'highlight', 0 )
SetItem( currentrow, 'highlight', 1 )
il_LastRow = CurrentRow

Then add a rectangle to your detail band and add the following expression to the background colour:

if( sum( highlight FOR GROUP 1 ) > 0, 65535, 16777215)
