RDI: Content assist can not show fields in data structures with more than 2 levels
In RDI you can normally use content assistent ( ctrl+space) to select a field from a list of fields. This works ok for data structures with 2 levels but if you have 3 or more it doesn't work. Example:dcl-ds myDS1 qualified; field1 like(myField1); ...
When editing DDS, show Screen/Record format you are on, much like RDi shows (Main Procedure), subroutine or procedure as you click through the code.
As a Developer, when you search for text or page through your code, RDi shows you the name of the procedure, subroutine at the bottom left of the code window. In DDS for a Display file, you can not tell which record format you are in. For larger D...
Rdi Debug Step Over enhancement - Exec SQL statements
Currently when debugging RPG code with RDi in *SOURCE view, Step Into and Step Over will have to be pressed an unknown number of times to clear a single Exec SQL Statement. This is because the SQL Precompiler replaces Exec SQL Statements with mult...
Ctrl+Left/Right Arrow should navigate syntactic word boundaries
RDI does not properly recognize token boundaries when navigating text. In Windows text editors, Ctrl+Left and Ctrl+Right are used to move the insertion point to the beginning of the previous or next word. This navigation does function in RDI, but ...
Add an RPG refactor feature to add the ALIAS keyword to a file or data structure and handle all the renames
Using the alias names for externally-described files or data structures makes the RPG code more readable. But it's difficult and error-prone to change an existing program to use the alias names instead of the short names, even using RDI's existing...
Add a colored border for different environements in RDi
In IBM i Access Client Solutions (ACS) - Run SQL Scripts it is possible to set a colored border for different environments/connections. This is really helpful when working on different (customer) environments or test and productive environments. A...
Add the ability to create/save/and use Library Lists
Users of RDi generally work on more than one product need an easier way to manipulate the Library List. While adding a new Library List view will help, users want the ability to create, save, and use those library lists. This will speed productivi...
RDI: outline does not show fields modified by eval-corr
If you have two data structures and do an eval-corr in RPG dcl-ds myds1; a char(10); b char(10); c char(10);end-ds; dcl-ds myds2; a char(10); b char(10); c char(10); d char(10);end-ds; eval-corr myds2 = myds1; then it is not shown in the outline t...
RDi should bring me to source of Serviceprogram procedure
Within RDi I can directly go to the source of a Copy Book (/copy or /include) and within RDi 184.108.40.206 I even can see that source directly. The same functionality is needed for procedures used in our code when they are somehow bonded to the program...
