Error description

  • Currently when editing an RPGLE source member using the Remote
    Systems LPEX Editor in Rational Developer for I (RDI) 9.5 using
    the Content Assist (CA) can be unpredictable in what it chooses
    to replace.  The CA will attempt to do a smart replace of
    existing elements based on what is to the left of the cursor
    when the CA is activated.  To be more predictable, the behavior
    should replace any stream-selected text.

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:                                         *
    * RPG Content Assist for â ˜END-â ˜ would not perform the      *
    * chosen completion correctly; but would add the full opcode   *
    * choice.                                                      *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    Content Assist would insert the full opcode in front of the
    partial text; instead of fully replacing it, resulting in
    â ˜END-PREND-â ˜.
