RDI 9.1.1.1 Keyboard Quick-Open of IBM Member: --> SOLVED!

Hi,

Since using WDSC 6.0, I have NOT been able to get the "Ctrl+Shift+A" to open a Member to work.

I tried manually mapping it, and RDI would NOT allow me to map it. Blocked me for an unknown Reason.

So, I would map my quick open to "Ctrl+Shift+Q" for Quick-Open of IBM i member. 

Over the years, I have often got that question. Why won't that fast open of a member work? My reply was always,
I don't know, it is flaky, I use Ctrl+Shift+Q instead... <frown>

My co-worker did not have the "Run/Debug" showing in his window preferences. He was using a laptop by a
former employee, who left on his own.

I suggested he create a new workspace, to see if that preference, "Run/Debug" would "Pop-back-up", and
sure enough it did!!

Then I told him to try to map the Quick open to Ctrl+Shift+A to open a member. I said notice it does NOT WORK!.
<sad face>

Which I told him that is why I map it to Ctrl+shift+Q for "Q"uick open of a member.

Mitch, our new senior developer was not satisfied with this. A very sharp guy! He discovered that our
"cisco-Soft-Phone" had override the Ctrl+Shift+A to "A"nswer the phone! Wow! Never knew that! <Dropped Jaw>

Okay, at least I NOW Know this is NOT the fault of faulty RDI software, but rather a Global Windows shortcut in
Windows by Cisco Soft phone software!!!! Who knew?

This keyboard mapping issue has SOLVED!!!!!!! And sadly it made RDI look flaky, and in this case, it was NOT
RDI's FAULT!

RDI 9.1.1.1 unable to add break-point...

On RDI 9.1.1.1 unable to add a break-point on a Select statement....

Please check video:
https://picasaweb.google.com/102276967488806647195/RDI9111ErrorImages#6190274581470904722

Sorry for the bad video, but you can see that I tried several times to add a break-point in debug. And RDI is
unable to add a break-point on the code.

I had cleared all my break-points and  monitor-variables this morning. And no break-point added...

Oh well, restart and/or re-create a work-space again...

How I wish I had Visual Studio for RPGLE, that ACTUALLY WORKED on a consistent basis...

Imagine a Modern IBM i developer able to debug code! That is what a Modern IDE is supposed to allow a developer
to do! But, sadly, I expect too much...

Oh well, another restart, and resolved...

80 column cards

80 column cards worked great as an alternative to labels on 8" diskettes. Just write the contents, date, and
time on the card and stand it up in the diskette jacket. Disposable and no need to try to peel off sticky
labels from diskettes.

Is it by chance a "Floating License"? I just checked and our support cost 
for the licenses in our shop is just a shade over $200 each.

Re: WDSCI-L Digest, Vol 13, Issue 360

Eric, when we go to install the HATS 9.0 against RDi 9.1 it gives the 
message
"IBM Ration HATS must be installed into a package group with IBM Rational 
Application Developer for WebSphere Software V9.0, IBM Ration al Software 
Architect for WebSphere Software V9.0, IBM ration al Business Developer 
V9.0, IBM Ration al Developer for i V9.0, or IBM Ration al Developer for 
AIR and Linus V9.0"
We opened a ticket with IBM already regarding this and so far haven't made 
any progress. 
Thanks

Shane,

HATS was not part of this announcement.  So, there will not be a new
version on Sept 18.

What compatibility issues do you have?  HATS 90 with their fixpack can
install with RDi 91.

Thanks,
Eric

Re: RDi 9.5 announcement

Any word on if the HATS add-on will be updated to work with this version? 
We are already behind because of compatibility issues.

Guidelines for WDSCI-L mailing list

Monthly posting of the guidelines for participation in the Websphere
Development Studio Client and Rational Developer for i mailing list.

Keep to the subject.  The topic of the list is IBM's Rational Developer
for Power Systems, Rational Developer for i, and Websphere Development
Studio Client.  This includes all aspects of RDp / RDi / WDSCi. 
Including, but not limited to: RSE, LPEX, Compiling, Verification,
and CODE/400.

NOTE: EGL, Java, and Web development topics are better served in 
the lists specific to those topics.

Limited discussion of third party plug-in's is also allowed.  It is, 
however, recommend that questions about third party (non-IBM), non-open
source, plug-in's be directed to the vendor's technical support group.

Please be aware ... a number of IBM employees monitor this mailing list
and will offer help when possible.  Please keep in mind that the IBM'ers
participate in this list on their spare time and so may not be able to
respond promptly if at all.

When starting a new discussion thread, *PLEASE* try to avoid replying to
an existing message to get the correct email address.  When you reply to
an existing message, most email clients and the list archiving software
think that the new thread is part of the old thread, and will display it
as such.

When quoting messages, do not quote the entire message.  Just quote the
parts that are needed to make the appropriate references.

LPEX tasks & iSphere - just looking at this and some thoughts

Hi

One of the things iSphere has is a Tasks component, which ties in with 
the Java and other task setup in RDi.

When turned on, it pulls lines with the text '// TODO', for example, and 
displays them in a Tasks view, from which you can double click the task 
and open the source it came from.

Seems nice enough - but you can't mark these auto-listed tasks as 
complete, therefore you can't remove completed ones from the list. This 
is apparently by design of Eclipse.

I'm wondering just how useful this is - for awhile this morning I 
thought it was not so good - then I just had the thought that maybe the 
idea is to remove the tag line from source when the thing is done.

Does that line up with anyone's thoughts here?

Now I do see online that one can add tasks directly from the marker bar 
- you know, that narrow thing on the left that sometimes has warning 
triangles and breakpoints and all. I've begun to use it a l lot when RDi 
detects a syntax error, then I see what's going on - pretty cool, IMO.

The tasks entered this way are not written into the source, I see, and 
they do show up in the Tasks view, with the ability to mark as complete, 
either by checking the checkbox you now see or using the context menu.

Now this is starting to get interesting, I think - so I'm curious about 
y'all's experiences with this.

If it's licensing, it would be for ADTS. IBM i search uses FNDSTRPDM which 
is part of ADTS--at least I believe it is.

New Autocomplete RFE for LikeRec & File Formats
