APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • If in 0.6 Edit options, "CAPS initially ON" is checked, then
    in CHAR or LHEX mode, if one character is changed from lower
    case to uppercase, then all characters in the record are
    uppercased. When in HEX mode, only the changed character is
    uppercased, not the entire record. The behavior should be the
    same between the format modes.
    

Local fix

  • As HEX format should behave the same as CHAR and LHEX, users
    can switch to CHAR or LHEX to get the expected behavior.

Problem conclusion

  • 1. When editing data in HEX mode without a template, and the
    CAPS ON option is in effect, the record will be uppercased when
    a change is made to the record unless that change is made to the
    hexadecimal representation of the data.
    2. When editing data in LHEX mode without a template, and the
    CAPS ON option is in effect, the record will not be uppercased
    when a change is made to the record unless that change is made
    to the hexadecimal representation of the data.
