Error description

  • In RDz v9.5.0.1 the following incorrect behavior is seen.
    
    What is done:
    User has a PDS member list which shows "xxx ... more files"
    User opens a second window using menu item Window -> New Window
    User clicks on the "xxx... more files" in the second window
    
    What is expected:
    The member list in the second window is expanded
    
    What is observed:
    The member list in the first window is expanded
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • When using a new window to expand a "placeholder" object (which
    is used to limit the number of items resulting from a query) in
    RSE, the Remote Systems view for the original window gets
    expanded rather than the one the user is interacting with.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The expansion occurs in the wrong window because the
    double-clicking on a placeholder fires an expand event for all
    Remote Systems views but only one, the first, Remote Systems
    view is able to execute the expansion.
    

Temporary fix
