Curious font handling in RDi - and previous versions and names

Hi all

I sometimes need to print the source, and I've noticed what seems odd 
behavior.

To print I press ESC to go to the command line, where I enter "print 
block" to print what is selected. That uses the font in the editor, and 
that is usually a monospace font - I use Lucida Sans Typewriter Bold 14pt.

That prints as monospace.

But if I specify the font on the command line, no matter what I specify, 
it seems to use another font, and the same size - and the font is 
proportional, like Arial.

So I specify this in that command line - "print block font "Lucida Sans 
Typewriter-Bold-14" and get printout in something about 10pt and sans 
serif - like Arial.

Anyone else seen this? Anyone have a fix? Or workaround?

Thanks
Vern

RDI 9.1.1.1 Launch Shell not Echo commands..

Hi,

I am using RDi 9.1.1.1 and need to "Launch Shell". Which works Great! Right-click on a IFS folder, and select
"Launch Shell".

My problem is that it does NOT "echo" the commands I type into the command line...
<Puzzled-Look>

For example, I type in "LS"=windows DIR command. It does NOT echo what commands I typed in like the QSH or
STRQSH. Is there a setting to turn this on? 

Is this part of the Design? Or is this a missing setting/configuration?

Other than that, the Remote Command shell / launch shell is pretty awesome. Just does not LOG commands for
some unknown reason...

Fw: WDSCI-L Digest, Vol 13, Issue 312


Lot's of great answers on this one.
Alt-L, Alt-C, Alt-U etc. is Lpex's  line-oriented commands which are
excellent for move, copy, deletion of whole lines. (See the 'Selected'
submenu of the context (or right-click) menu ))

But if you have Ctrl-C, Ctrl-V in your fingers and you want to work with
stream selection, then you just have to make sure that you select the
newline character.
I think someone has already suggested it.  But the sequence that works well
for this is:
Home (move to first column)
Shift-Down arrow (select everything from here to where the cursor moves,
i.e. everthing on the line)
Ctrl-C - copy
move cursor to target location
Ctrl-V - paste

HTH
Edmund

Re: COBOL support in RDi?

Could the results for this depend on the 'Block' setting in preferences 
under 'LPEX Editor'?

Re: WDSCI-L Digest, Vol 13, Issue 312

I periodically search for RFEs for COBOL--and I generally vote for 
anything new. I think it would help if we (those of us who use COBOL--even 
just occasionally) all made a point to vote for any COBOL related 
enhancements. It would let IBM know there are people who still use COBOL. 
With enhancements, I think "If you build it, they will come" would apply.

Jeff--What happens when you do the Alt+L to mark a line and then Alt+C? I 
use it all the time without issue.

RDI 9.1.1. Help in LPEX--> Missing Index

Hi,

I am using RDI 9.1.1, and the help on %BIF, it does not take me to %BIF help area in the manual.
I thought this was fixed, but not sure.

The only other problem that I am having, is I do not see a link for the INDEX in ILE RPG Reference.

When I download the PDF, it has the Index, but not the Built-Help. Am I missing it somewhere?

This is in reference to the >Reference>Language reference>IBM i programming Information>High-level
languages>ILE RPG>Language Reference>IBM i 7.2-ILE RPG Reference

I am perplexed why the PDF has the INDEX at the back, but the built-in-help is missing the index. Do I need to do
an update or something?

Thanks.

-Ken-

COBOL support in RDi?

Has anyone ever submitted an RFE for IBM to support COBOL in RDi at the
same level as it does for RPG?

I could really use this.  Two missing features that are really hitting me
hard are
 1) lack of definition display when hovering over a field/variable name in
the source and
 2) almost useless outline view

Missing REPLACE prompt on Ctrl+F

Hello,

I am using WDSC on a V7R1 machine.
I was editing an RPG program, using Ctrl+F to find & replace a string.
And this worked.

After I completed a bunch of Search & Replace actions, I wanted to do more.
And so when I press Ctrl+F this time, I get only the FIND box.
So I can find & search. But there is no prompt to enter the REPLACEMENT
string.

I have RESET the perspective back to it's original state.
I have CLOSED the WDSC application & got back in.
And neither of them help.

Appreciate any of your help.

Regards,
Mohan Eashver

Re: iSphere Release Notes

I got an email from SourceForge that iSphere has been updated.  I swear in the past there used to be a list of
changes on the SourceForge site somewhere.    I went out there and could not find one.  I thought it was a txt
file in the Files section, but not one there. I checked the wiki section and there is a list there, but way old.

I basically want to see if the new changes warrant me upgrading before I download a zip file or do the update in
RDI.  It would be nice to know if I need to update the server piece with this update too.

Did I miss something?

Thanks,
Scott Johnson

iSphere message file search issue

RDi V9.1.1.1, iSphere V2.6.2.r (I downloaded the new iSphere yesterday, and transferred the iSphere library).

When I'm using iSphere to search message files, it appears to hang, then I noticed a QSYSOPR message.

The call to XFNDSTR_SE ended in error (C G D F).

Joblog:

Client request - run program *LIBL/W002002.
Length or start position is out of range for the string operation.
The call to XFNDSTR_SE ended in error (C G D F).
C
Application error.  RNX0100 unmonitored by XFNDSTR at statement
  0000000726, instruction X'0000'.

The search has worked in the past. I don't use it *all* that often, so I'd be hard pressed to say when things
went haywire.

Thanks.

Re: *** ADMIN: Should this list be renamed?

I have no problem with renaming the list. Edmund makes a great point that 
we'll call it RDi even if the name changes--that's what we've effectively 
done with wdsci-l. 

As far as RDi being a little too cryptic for folks, we've lived with 
wdsci-l (Websphere Development Studio Client for i) for many years. The 
one question I have would be if you can have an alias of WDSCi-L and a 
redirect for external links? Then it could still be found--or someone 
coming back to look at the list after an extended absence could still 
find/reach the list. We also still get questions periodically from someone 
actually using WDSCi.

Case should be irrelevant for any compliant MUA (Mail User Agent) or MTA 
(Mail Transfer Agent).

I remain grateful the list is currently available and has such accessible 
archives.
