    ****************************************************************
    When using live outline view for ILE RPG, the content assist
    proposal for a field whose length is defined via the LEN
    keyword, incorrectly describes the fields as having 0 length.
    There is no other negative consequence of this error.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The content assist proposal now displays the correct length.
    
    This fix is in the RDi 9.0.1 update.
