Re: Requests for Enhancements (RFEs) Community for Rational Developer for Power Systems

This looks good!  I had a look at the requests RPG/Cobol Development 
Tools section and voted for the "Function to indent/format existing 
code".  That would be nice.  (Currently in the middle of overhauling a 
3,000+ line RPG IV application...)

Can you add a Color Palette?

If you go to Window -> Preferences -> LPEX -> Appearence    you can see 
the Palette drop down box.  Mine has Black, Grey, and White listed.  Is 
there a way to add a new palette?  I've looked around but can't find one. 
Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Help with RDp Report Designer

I just installed RDp 8.0.1 and am attempting to use the report designer to edit 
an existing print file that is 198 characters wide.
When I bring it up in Report Designer, I only see 132 characters.
If I try moving the scroll bar on the bottom, it just increases the font size.
I have looked for a setting that will allow me to tell it to use a 198 character 
width, but can not find it.

All help will be appreciated.

Thanks,

Re: Help with RDp Report Designer

Hi Jeff,

In Report Designer records don't really have any size so it just defaults 
to 132 when showing them.

If you want to model it more accurately for how the prtf will be compiled 
then add the record to a "Report" then set the column width for the report 
to be 198 (or whatever is appropriate).

Re: Help with RDp Report Designer


Hi Jeff

The width of the report is something that is not defined in DDS, but is a
part of the compile command.
These types of contextual information that go into the report (such as
order in which records written, sample field data, indicators, page size)

Click on the 'Design reports'  and you will be able to specify the Page
size including columns (columns is under lines you may need to size the
'Report controls' to be taller in order to see it)
You will also want to name the report and go to the Records tab and add the
records that make up this report in the order they would be written.
Note that you can add a record multiple times, which makes a lot of sense
for a detail record

Enjoy!

Re: Help with RDp Report Designer

Thanks,
I knew it had to be there somewhere, but could not find it.

On another note, using the screen designer, is there a way to set the indicators 
for conditions in the design view?
I can set them in the preview mode, but need to be able to set conditions so 
that I can overlay fields based on conditions.

Thanks,

Block Copy/Paste in LPEX

Group,

Was talking with a developer who tried using WDSc when it first came out
and, since he had issues with it, he dropped.  I told him that those issues
were probably addressed and he should try looking at it again.  The first,
and biggest issue, was that he could not do block copy and paste of code.  I
found that you can do block copies (Windows --> Preferences --> LPEX Editor
--> Block --> rectangle) but I could not find a way to do a block paste.
When I copied a section of a data structure, lets say the names only, I
could not paste that into another source, overlaying the names of that data
structure.  Does anyone know of a way to do this?

Also, and very much a minor issue, he does not like it when using the
Backspace button to delete a character and have everything to the right of
the cursor move over.  I found where I could map an action (BackSpace  Left)
so that it would not delete the character and therefore not move the rest of
the line, but I'm wondering if there is a way do it with deleting the
character.

I'm trying to address his and other developers issues with moving to RDp
because we are currently on V5R4 and going to a Power7 box with V7R1 and
want everyone to be able to make an informed choice of either getting ADTS
or RDp.
