  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When a logical file is expanded in the RPGLE live outline the
    key fields are shown in the order that they are defined in the
    base physical file not the order that was defined in the logical
    file.  The static outline shows the key fields in the correct
    order.
    

Local fix

  • The static outline for RPGLE can be enabled by opening the
    preferences dialog (menu Window > Preferences) then navigating
    to the panel Remote Systems > Remote Systems LPEX Editor > IBM i
    Parsers > ILE RPG.  On this panel uncheck the preference "Update
    the Outline view when text is changed in the editor".  Click OK
    to close the preferences then close and reopen the RPGLE source
    to activate the static outline.
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED: Editors of ILE RPG in RDi using the          *
    *                 dynamic outline view                         *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: Key fields were shown in the outline    *
    *                      view in buffer order rather than key    *
    *                      order.                                  *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    When a logical file is expanded in the RPGLE live outline the
    key fields are shown in the order that they are defined in the
    base physical file not the order that was defined in the logical
    file.  The static outline shows the key fields in the correct
    order.
    

Problem conclusion

  • There is a conflicting requirement to show the keys separately
    in key order and to show all the fields including keys in
    buffer order.  In order to solve this, there is now a new
    child of database record formats that lists just the keys in
    key order.  The fields of the record format, including keys
    are shown in buffer order.
