I see that Change Bars and Link Indicators apply only to the Main column. That's a drag for non-spec like modules that don't have a Main column.
In Feb jsarkic was kind enough to provide an example of a DXL column showing the change bars. See below after I tweaked it.
Can this be enhanced into a column showing link indicators that actually work? That is, hover the mouse and see the link, click to follow to the linked object.
// InsertChangeBarColumn.dxl /* Inserts a thin column mimicking the 'Change Bars' color of the Main column. Select a column, run this from the DXL Window */ string DXL_Code = " // Display change bars in this column DBE can = getCanvas() if (unsaved obj) realBackground(can, realColor_Red) // Change not yet saves elseif (modified obj) realBackground(can, realColor_Yellow) // modified since Baseline else realBackground(can, realColor_Blue) // not modified since baseline " // end string DXL_Code Column cCurr = column(getSelectedCol(current Module)) Column cNew = insert(cCurr) dxl(cNew, DXL_Code) width(cNew, 6) // Best width seems to be '6', I guess Pixels // ---- end file InsertChangeBarColumn.dxl ----
