Error description

  • After opening an RPGLE source member in the LPEX editor the
    outline view only has Files and Data Structures under Global
    Definitions. Clicking on "Refresh view" the outline does not
    change and a dialogue is shown with the message:
    "An error has occurred. See error log for more details.
    java.lang.NullPointerException"
    
    In RDP 8.0.3 this outline builds correctly.
    

Local fix

  • In the RDP 8.5 live outline view there is a icon at the top of
    the view that is a down-pointing triangle. Click on this and it
    will open the properties. In the properties uncheck the checkbox
    for the option to update the outline while typing in the editor.
    Click OK to exit the properties then close and re-open the
    source member.  The outline will then work as it did in version
    8.0.
