Error description

  • When adding a controlled file to an external unit, Rhapsody
    gives erratic error message. (ErrorMessage.bmp)
    
    When we add the controlled file already into the same directory
    where also the .sbs of the external unit is stored.
    
    
    Problem 1: Directly when executing "add controlled file"
    Rhapsody displays a message: Controlled file must be located
    under the _rpy directory.
    ->  In case of external units this is not true (in our case
    there is no _rpy directory for the external unit).  It is
    actually misleading because the file is NOT  located under the
    _rpy of the project containing the external unit (which is the
    only _rpy that exists in our project).
    
    Problem 2: If the file is already at the correct location for
    whatever reason Rhapsody cannot just use it.
    
    Problem 3: If we try to replace the existing file (with itself)
    we get an not very specific error message. However replace
    should work - the file is accessible and not open anywhere else.
    
    Rename actually works.
    => In the end the file is located correctly inside the external
    unit and is accessible from Rhapsody. So the feature is
    basically working.
    
    However the messages displayed are misleading and some dialog
    options (like the replace) are not working.

Problem conclusion

  • Fixed by preventing the redundant message about the file that
    should be in the _rpy folder.
