  • Color coding for translation attributes

    • Under Review
    • 1 Comments
    In 10.2.B the translation attributes were color coded (OpenEdge Architect), but this is no loger the case in OE11 (Developer Studio) The Tech-Support informed me that this was a bug and the color coding is now working as inteded. But the color coding...
  • Boxing/unboxing of ABL datatypes to/from Progress.Lang.Object

    Currently only .NET compatible ABL datatypes can be boxed to System.Object. It would be usefull if ALL ABL datatypes could be boxed to Progress.Lang.Object. That way generic properties like Tag or Value could be made that can return any type (similar...
  • Support for Truncate table.

    • Under Review
    • 0 Comments
    Right now delete all records from an OE table is big pain. specially if table contains huge number of record, say 10 million. So support of Truncate table or Empty table programmatically, will be useful.
  • Add parameter to QUIT statement to return value to caller

    It's currently not possible to return a value to the shell when exiting a Progress session, so there's no easy way to know if a batch session was successful or not. Trapping return code (using $? or %ERRORLEVEL%) is especially useful when dealing...
  • .NET Support for Pacific AppServer

    Progress allowed in OpenEdge 11.x us to use .NET classes in AppServer logic. There are many helpfull classes and we started to use them. Now the new "Pacific Appserver (OEPAS)" does not include .NET Support. I think this is really needed. Progress...

    • 1 Comments
    The auto complete in developer studio would be more useful if it included the variable names instead of just the variable types (INPUT CHARACTER, INPUT INTEGER, etc). Also the auto complete should not disappear once you start typing . Visual Studio...
  • Regular expressions in the ABL

    Do we really still not have regular expressions? Can we please get regex support in the ABL? There are many circumstances where MATCHES just doesn't do the job.
  • Add MERGE/REPLACE option to OUTPUT DATASET parameter passing syntax

    Currently there is a possibility to add records to a client side dataset from a dataset passed as output parameter using the APPEND option: RUN AddData(param1, param2,... OUTPUT DATASET MyDataset APPEND ). This only works if the records being added...
  • Do not allow possible abbreviated table and field names to take priority over class...

    As soon as a field is added to the database that starts with the name of a class that is referenced unqualified (i.e. there is a USING present), all code using that class fails. This is because the compiler now see the class name as an abbreviation of...
  • Use new Enum functionality in built-in attributes/methods

    To make code more type-safe, it would be nice if existing built-in attributes/methods that currently only accept a constant or string get an overloaded version that accepts an Enum. E.g. BUFFER ttOrder:FILL-MODE = "MERGE":U could become...
