Hover text has been added to RDi which provides dynamic cross referencing. For example, when the cursor is placed over a file name, the declaration is shown. I would like to request a similar function for record formats so that when the cursor is hovered over a record format name, the corresponding physical, print or display file name appears.
Suppose I have an RPG program which specifies several logical files over the same physical file. In this case the record formats have been internally renamed in the file specifications. I would like to know quickly which file is being referenced without having to search the file cross references . It would also be useful on CHAIN, UPDATE and WRITE statements.
