Re: CHGPF - Cannot drop fields

Really, we are going to force ourselves back to 5250 green screen just because that is the way it has always
been? Seems to me since IBM owns both RDi and IBM i there could be some communication between the two teams to
allow CHGPF, and ALTER TABLE to drop or shorten columns in the GUI. Is RDi the future for IBM i development or
not. If it is, you have to be able to do this.

Sorry Mark,

That's not an RDi issue. That's the been the behavior of CHGPF from a 
source file since its inception. If you run it interactively in a 5250 
session, it prompts with an inquiry message where you can ignore the 
error. Running the command any other way, always results in a 'C' to 
cancel the command.

SQL Cobol compile errors

Hi,

I am getting very frustrated with myself because I keep forgetting that when you double click on compile
errors in SQLCBLLE programs it doesn't open the SQL Cobol source, it opens the precompiled source in
QTEMP. I then go on to correct the errors in the wrong source and if I am lucky I remember before I then try to
compile again and wonder why I'm getting the same errors again!

Is there anything I can do, configuration wise, to get the error list linked to the correct source member?

Does this happen with SQL RPG?

CHGPF - Cannot drop fields

I am having issues dropping fields with CHGPF and RDi 9.1.1. It tells me it worked, but the file does not
change and the log includes a CPD32CE  indicating that a C was used to reply to CPA32B2. If I use CHGPF
directly from a 5250 interactive command line, I get the option to ignore the error. Is there a way to do that
in RDi? Not sure how you would redirect the inquiry message to the RDi job as it is a batch, and takes the
default reply which is C. Just wondering if anyone had solved this without changing the system reply list.

What is Code Coverage


Just saw a recent post from Edmund Reinhardt about a Test Optimizer, so I
look at the tutorial, and it talks about Code Coverage, which I thought was
a java only tool, but the tutorial shows some RPG programs.  So, me being a
green screen programmer for a business centered around an MRP package, does
Code Coverage mean anything to me?  I did try running a Code Coverage
Report against one of my programs, and I see a list of my sub-procedures
with various Coverage %s, but I don't see what that means to me.

Test Optimizing Advisor beta


This beta has been out since January but the link to the tutorial has been
kind of buried, so I don't think that people have gotten a taste of what
this can do for you.
I have created a new blog entry that will help you see the functionality as
well as help you install it.

DDS Autosort?


Hi,

I'm using the DDS Design perspective to edit some DSPF DDS.
I found the manual sort function to sort the new entries by row/column
after you're done adding them.
But I was wondering if there's a preference anywhere to have them
automatically sorted at save time?

Thanks,
Brian

Re: Fw: IBM Developer Works RFE site

Hi Edmund
We had a couple of similar complains yesterday. The issue in such cases was
corrected after users cleared up their cache and cookies.

It seems that cookies are a culprit though.

The site is working fine otherwise (more than 80 requests submitted today
already).

Thank you,

Re: iSphere search window display issue

It's definitely something in RDi or the underlying Eclipse platform or its 
interaction with the host PC--my guess is it's related to the interaction 
with certain video drivers on the PC. It was a regular occurrence for me 
in the open member dialog and the source compare dialog (or other random 
Eclipse dialogs) until I received a new PC. Since then, I don't think I've 
seen it.

I had a day where I couldn't get the dialog to come up correctly. I 
thought I would open a PMR on it, so I tried to do a video capture of it 
happening. The dialog on my screen was empty until I moused over the 
various input fields and buttons--just as Mark describes below. But my 
captured video showed everything there the whole time. That was annoying 
and frustrating as can be.

iSphere search window display issue

Hi,

I've been meaning to ask people about this for a while but does anyone else have issues with the isphere
source file search window not displaying properly (see below). Sometimes, but not always, the window
pops up "see-through" and if I wiggle the mouse around over the window the input capable fields/buttons appear!
