Here if you type myDS1. and press ctrl+space you will be presented of a list with field1 to field4.
Now we have another situation dcl-ds myDS2 qualified; dcl-ds p; field1 like(myField1); field2 like(myField2); end-ds; dcl-ds o; field3 like(myField3); field4 like(myField4); end-ds; end-ds;
Here if you type myDS2.p. and press ctrl+space I would expect a list with the fields field1 and field2. But nothing happends. It looks like that RDI can not show more than 2 levels of a data structure.
So every time I have to expand the data structure in the Outline to see the fields in myDS2.p and type them manually. It is really time consuming.
Given a data structure with 3 or more levels it should be possible to select a field with content assist (ctrl+space) from level 3.
Now you have to first select level 1 ( myDS2 ), then p from level 2 using content assist and then typing the field name manually ( field2 ) after expanding the data structure in the Outline to have a list of fields.
Today it is not unusually with data structures with more that 2 levels. For example with XML. So content assist should support this too.
