Error description

  • Rational Developer for System z(RDz) PLI hover capability does
    not work on all variables.
    
    For example, when the variable is defined below it works:
    dcl z bin(31) fixed init(0);
    
    However, when the variable is defined below it fails:
    dcl x fixed bin(31) init(0);
    
    In the program if you have:
      x = 1;
    
      z = 1;
    
    
    
    When the cursor is placed on x in 'x=1' nothing happens.
    
    However, when the cursor on z in 'z=1' it correctly shows the
    declared type.
