Error description

  • Rational Developer for System z - RDz - v8.5.1
    RDz's Contents assist functionality fails when dispalying
    structures
    declared as LIKE
    
    For instance, in the following program, when I create a new line
    and type aw, then hit the ctrl+space I am given only 2 options.
    But, if the structure is not defined with a ptr
    then I am given the options of the like structure.
    
    P77397: PROC() OPTIONS(MAIN);
    
    dcl z1 char(10);
    dcl 1 wt,
           5 a1 char(10),
           5 a2 char(3),
           5 a3 char(5);
    dcl z2 char(16) varying;
    dcl awptr ptr;
    dcl bwptr ptr;
    dcl aw like wt based(awptr);
    dcl bw like wt based(bwptr);
    dcl mw like wt;
    dcl c like wt;
    
       z1 = ' HI';
       DISPLAY( z1 ) ;
       wt.a1 = z1;
    
    END P77397;
    
    
    There is no syntax error for aw.a1 = z1,
    but aw.x is not given as a choice for content assist.
    Also, the structure is not displayed when you hover over the
    variable.
