Error description

  • Rational Developer for System z - v8.0.3.1
    
    Description :
    Some variable values in 'HTML/XML'-syntax are not correctly
    shown in the LPEX editor when hovering the variable with the
    mouse.
    It seems that the masking of the value in the tool-tip has a
    problem.
    The values should be shown in the tool-tip as it is and not
    unmasked. The Cobol editor shows the values correctly (without
    unmasking them).
    
    Steps to reproduce :
    In a cobol file, add a variable with the followings :
     01 test-vara.
    
          05  constante1-GT           PIC X(04) VALUE '?gt;'.
    
          05  constante1-LT            PIC X(04) VALUE '?lt;'.
    
          05  constante1-AMP         PIC X(05) VALUE '?amp;'.
    
          05  constante1-QUOT       PIC X(06) VALUE '?quot;'.
    
          05  constante1-APOS       PIC X(06) VALUE '?apos;'.
    
    Then you open this .cbl file with the LPEX editor and when
    hovering the variable with the mouse, it opens a tool-tip with
    the unmasked value (?apos excepted).
    When you open this file with the Cobol editor, all values remain
    masked.
    
    Local fix : none
