Error description

  • When using content assist to change an existing reference to a
    data structure and subfield and the new value is longer than the
    old one it will overlay the subfield as well.  For example in
    the case where a DS like this is used
    
        myVar = myDS.field
    
    And then content assist is emplyed to select the new value
    myData to replace myDS the result will appear as:
    
        myVar = myDataield
    
    The content assist should replace the myDS with myData and
    not overlay the ".field" part of the line.
    

Local fix

  • Manually correct the statement after using content assist
