APAR status

  • Closed as documentation error.

Error description

  • TLOG#51895
    Using Rational DOORS, p. 320 (p. 338 of PDF) has this
    description for Current:
    The current value of the selected attribute. If you have
    selected more than one object for the change proposal, the value
    of the first object in the Applies to ?n? objects list is
    displayed.
    
    However, the behavior observed in DOORS 9.1 and 9.2 is that
    Current displays the value of the object that had focus when the
    Submit Change Proposal command was invoked, even when it's not
    the first object. Thus, the documentation does not match the
    actual behavior.
    
    Per Development, this is a documentation issue.

  • No known workarounds
    

Problem summary

  • Using Rational DOORS, p. 320 (p. 338 of PDF) has this
    description for Current:
    The current value of the selected attribute. If you have
    selected more than one object for the change proposal, the value
    of the first object in the Applies to 'n' objects list is
    displayed.
    
    However, the behavior observed in DOORS 9.1 and 9.2 is that
    Current displays the value of the object that had focus when the
    Submit Change Proposal command was invoked, even when it's not
    the first object. Thus, the documentation does not match the
    actual behavior.
    

Problem conclusion

  • This defect was fixed in the DOORS 9.2.0.1 online help -- the
    documentation now matches the application behavior.
    
    The description for Current now states:
    The current value of the attribute. If you have selected more
    than one object for the change proposal, the value of the object
    that was the current object when the Change Proposal was invoked
    is displayed.
