  • Remove OS access from various Progress Editor points

    • Under Review
    We can test some workarounds such as override the Procedure Editor menu options to prevent users accessing the operating system through the menu or ensure our users only have access to folders you want them to have access to but this should be a permanent...
  • xml-xref nodes for function calls

    In an xml-xref you can see RUN nodes for procedure calls, but no an equivalent for function calls. Would be nice to have those.

    • Under Review
    This enhancement is derived from a support case 00318593. It was found that if you have a Progress error (e.g. Progress.Lang.AppError). If that apperror is thrown in a progress class but goes across the .net boundary, it gets converted to a .net exception...

  • Access to INITIAL value for variable

    • Under Review
    Ref pkb 47199. The INITIAL attribute should be accessible for widgets programmatically
  • AutoComplete on UIB. Part 2 ( KevinRyer has also added something about this )

  • Procedure Libraries: Manifest File for versioning PL files to allow dependencies...

    I'd like to see the ability to put version information into a proceudre library that could be used to deal with dependencies. Right now a prolib cannot be easily versioned and has to be manually checked by an exterior process in order to check that...
