Error description

  • When using Screen Designer in IBM Rational Developer for i 9.1.0
    and 9.1.1 to display screen titles in a display file, dspf, with
    multiple WDWTITLE parameters only the first parameters are
    allowed and others are ignored.
    
    If ITEM MASTER ADDITIONAL DETAILS is the title and is set to
    *LEFT with no top indicated and
    F8=UPDATE is set to *LEFT *BOTTOM.
    ITEM MASTER ADDITIONAL DETAILS should be in the top left border.
    However, the emulator and design and screen panels take the
    *LEFT only and ignore any others.
    The IBM i documentation reads:
    #1 If you specify the WDWTITLE keyword more than once at the
    effect are combined.
    #2 The *TOP/*BOTTOM parameter specifies if the text should be
    embedded in the top or bottom border.  If not specified, the
    text will be placed in the top border.
    
    In #1 combining *LEFT and *BOTTOM would result in *LEFT and
    *BOTTOM.
    In #2, *LEFT has no accompanying *TOP or *BOTTOM parameter and
    so should result in *LEFT and *TOP, but are ignored.
    
    The emulator and preview and design panes will be reviewed
    to match the WDWTITLE specifications.
    

Local fix

  • Manually add the *TOP in the design panes or in the dspf code
    for the title to be set in the top border.
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:                                              *

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:                                         *
    * In RDi Screen Designer WDWTITLEs were not shown in the top   *
    * and bottom at the same time.                                 *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    DDS allows WDWTITLEs to be specified concurrently for both the
    top and bottom rows of a window.  Screen Designer would only
    show the title in either the top or bottom in both the Design
    Page and Preview Page.  The size of the title was not being
    truncated in the Preview page.  The bracketing attribute bytes
    were not being displayed correctly in the Design Page.
    

Problem conclusion

  • This problem is fixed in the RDi 9.5.0.3 update.
