Error description

  • Rational Developer for System z - RDz - V9.0
    
    If the cursor moves to a place in the code with a corresponding
    node (a DO or SELECT node for instance) that is hidden, the
    outline view tries to select the hidden node and this is
    invisible to the user.
    
    Steps to re-create:
    . open the Helloapp.pli program and add 1 procedure:
    
    helloapp: proc() options(main);
    
    Dcl theAnswer char(16) varying;
    
    Do Forever;
    
       Display('Enter a name or Q to quit')
         Reply( theAnswer );
    
       if theAnswer = 'q' | theAnswer = 'Q'
         then Leave;
         else Display('Hello '|| theAnswer );
    
    end; /* Do Forever */
    
    Proc1 : proc;
         variable1  = 0;
         variable3 = 0;
         variable2 = variable1 *2;
    
         do while (variable1 = 0);
           variable2 = variable3 + 1;
           if variable2 / 2 = 0 then;
           variable1 = 1;
         end;
    
    end Proc1;
    end helloapp;
    
    . link the outline view and the LPEX editor
    . check the "Hide statement blocks not containing data items"
    option
    . click on the 'HelloApp:' line: the helloapp:proc is
    highlighted
    in the Outline view
    . then move the cursor down one line: theAnswer is highlighted
    in the Outline view
    . then move the cursor down one line: once on line 'Do forever'
    statement, the highlighting disappears
    
    If the "Hide statement blocks not containing data items" option
    is unchecked, then the line "Do" in the Outline view is
    highlighted
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • If the cursor moves to a place in the code with a corresponding

    invisible to the user.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Modified the outline code to not change current selection if the
    cursor moves to a place in the code corresponding to a hidden
    outline view node.
