We also have a few small enhancements for you:
- Debugger enhancement to allow you to hover over a variable and display the associated value
- Debugger preference to disable warnings for missing source
- Debugger performance improvement when isExternal=yes is used on call statements. isExternal=YES will bypass the workspace search, while EXTERNALLYDEFINED will continue to do the search, if needed. For non-EGL programs, if you don't use isExternal=yes, you can avoid the workspace search by adding an entry into the debug behavior mapping table in the EGL->Debug preferences.
- New preference for retrieving SQL data -You can use the EGL type char for SQL date, time, and timestamp in SQL Retrieve preference
to allow data that is stored in the database as DATE, TIME, or
TIMESTAMP type to be converted to EGL CHAR type when it is retrieved.
- Form editor no longer requires consecutive numbering for validationOrder
