Error description

  • Content Assist in PL/1 program after a Handle with  an ?=??
    operator
    pointing to an XML structure does not list all members of the
    XML structure asexpected.
    
    
    Let?sconsider the following snippet :
    
    DEFINESTRUCTURE
          1 XML_NODE;
          5NAME            CHAR(50)VAR,
          5ID             BIN FIXED(31),
          5ATTRIB          PTR,
          5 NAMESPACES      PTR,
          5DATA            PTR,
          5DATASIZE        BIN FIXED(31),
          5PARENT          PTR,
          5 FIRSTCHILD      PTR,
          5 LASTCHILD      PTR,
          5 NEXTSIBLING     PTR;
    
     dcl    struct1            typeXML_NODE;
     dcl     doesntworks_handle  handle XML_NODE;
    
           struct1.NAME = '1';
    
           doesntworks_handle =?
    If you hit CTRL + SPACE key after  ?doesntworks_handle=? ?, the
    Content Assist
    gives the following choices:  doesn'tworks_handle,struct1, and
    XML_NODE.
    Content Assist does not give any XML members as expected such as
     NAME ,ID, ATTRIB ?
