PDSOE - show variable name instead of just datatype in context assist

  • Under Review

In PDSOE, we have available methods of a class show up in the outline view and the context assistance. They show the method name along with the parameter data types.


It would be nicer to show the variable name in addition to the data types.  For example, if I have:

method public logical Hello(yourname as character, greeting as character):

end.

If I do

myObj:Hello(

I see Hello (character, character) in the context assist.

It would be nicer to see:

Hello (yourname - character, greeting - character) in the context assist instead.

It would be nice to see that in the outline view also.  This way as a developer I get more context about what I'm supposed to pass to the method without having to go to the method itself.
