  • Docs: Replace "Explain everything everywhere" policy with links

    • Under Review
    I'm reviewing the ABL Ref Doc for stuff on WIDGET-POOLs, and I noted that each case where NO-ERROR is part of the doc, there's a whole dissertation on NO-ERROR relating to CATCH, ERROR-STATUS, etc. In the case of the DELETE WIDGET-POOL statement...
  • ABL Scratchpad - Tabbing

    • Complete
    Re: A bit of a nuisance that is. Tab key doesn't tab in the ABL Scratchpad. Confirmed as still broken in 11.4.
  • Rationalize procedure references in xref

    Currently, procedure references in xref (both kinds) are placed in the output in sequence with the end of that procedure rather than at the line where the procedure actually begins. The line number referenced is the line number of the end. My understanding...
  • Ability to use properties anywhere a scalar can be used

    • Under Review
    This includes all UI input / output fields, dialogue boxes, etc. Presently an intermediate scalar variable has to be used to shuttle data from the property to the UI element and back again.
  • Add expected error message numbers per statement/method/... to the documentation

    When handling specific Progress.Lang.SysErrors currently it's always try and error to know the error message numbers to filter on. If the expected error message numbers would be documented this would make creating rock-solid code much simpler. Other...
  • Callback routines during READ-XML or READ-JSON

    It would be beneficial to manipulate the temp-tables while filling it using READ-XML or READ-JSON. Similar as the AFTER-FILL/AFTER-ROW-FILL. In this way it is possible to fill fields with initial values (i.e. which are not in the xml document).
  • SUPPROMSGS for OEDK: Classroom Edition

    Non english language pack exists only in additional language pack and is not available for OEDK: Classroom Edition users. This is serious problem for newbie. Please add a language pack (SUPPROMSG) to the OEDK: Classroom Edition
  • Make F3 key (Open Declaration) work more consistently in PDSOE

    • Under Review
    The F3 keyboard shortcut (Open Declaration) does not work as consistently within PDSOE as it does when editing Java code in Eclipse. e.g. In the sample code below selecting "doSomethingHelpful" & then pressing F3 will do nothing. I would...
  • -rereadnolock to be honoured by ROWID finds

    The -rereadnolock parameter is ignored when you find a record by ROWID. This behaviour is bordering on a bug, and certainly gives rise to bugs in applications where this is not expected. This needs fixing.
  • block-level option

    There is a check mark option when building new classes in PDSOE to automatically insert the routine-level on-error undo, throw. There should also be an option for block-level.
