Error description

  • Debugging ILE RPG using Rational Developer for i (RDI) 9.6.0.7
    string values in an array contained in a structure may not be
    displayed correctly in the Variables or Monitors views.
    
    Attempting to modify the value for an array element that is
    showing badly in the Variables or Monitors view will fail with
    an error message.
    
    For example, with data structure:
    
            dcl-ds MyDS qualified;
              myData   char(1900) dim(50);
            end-ds;
    
    Expanding MyDS.myData in the Variables view will show a value
    only for the first element and nothing for subsequent elements.
    

Local fix

  • For the example, view or monitor the specific array element of
    interest such as MyDS.myData(5)
