Re: Intelligent Check-Out

Thanks Joe I our case, multiple developers work on the same coding assignments across multiple timezones. Managing multiple Task_ID's in this context becomes a nightmare. It has been tried and becomes very unproductive after a while. Hence the suggestion to build some intelligence into the check-out...

Intelligent Check-Out

Working in a Shared Visual LANSA development environment Say you attempt to Check-Out an object in error, forgetting that you had made changes to it previously that were not yet checked-in. The Checkout process should look at the datetime stamps on the current VL code and issue an alert message that...

Re: Is Select faster than Selectlist?

Your SELECT is reading 1000 records using a KEY, whereas your SELECTLIST is reading 10X more records and evaluating a WHERE clause. In other words, the SELECTLIST has to check each and every record in the working list. That would explain the performance difference. If you run the same SELECTLIST, wi...

Re: IDE Enhancement Request

Indeed, that would be a very useful enhancement to the IDE!

When working with programs with thousands of lines of code, it becomes a nuisance trying to go through the code using "Find" looking for such CALL/SUBMIT commands. Having such commands in the Goto Tab would be a very useful addition.

Re: IDE Enhancement - licensing

Thanks, this enhancement has been requested in the past too. It would be a very welcome enhancement as it allows someone to open objects as read-only. That in itself is enough to warrant this enhancement. Currently, in a shared development environment, one can open an object in edit mode and mistake...

Selective Searching

It would be really useful to enhance Text Searching in the Visual LANSA IDE, such that one could highlight a selection of Components/Functions and then have a Right-Click option to search for a particular keyword within the source code of your selection. e.g. You can select 50 functions, right-click...

Debug an RDML Trigger

I was wondering if there is an elegant way to debug (via the VL IDE) an RDML trigger function that's running on an IBMi server from a Visual LANSA app? Some options that come to mind are: 1. Convert the trigger to RDMLX, run under debug and then recreate it back to RDML when done 2. Perform debuggin...

Re: Where did BIF GET_FILE_INFO go?

Thanks James,
Is there an equivalent import for the IBMi server too?
The BIF compiled object is not there on the IBMi server.

Where did BIF GET_FILE_INFO go?

We have a legacy system in which we use the GET_FILE_INFO BIF (BI@P129) to build some table information. I noticed that this BIF is missing in V14SP2, even though it's documented in V14SP2 docs here: https://docs.lansa.com/14/en/lansa015/content/lansa/get_file_info.htm I was wondering if this was an...

Re: VL-IDE slow

OK, so there's a hotfix for EPC142060. Not keen on installing hotfixes (unless I have to). Will have to wait for the next EPC in this case. I am much more concerned about the IDE crashes I'm getting at EPC142040. I had at least 3 crashes today at different times e.g. when editing a pop-up menu item,...

VL-IDE slow

I am using EPC142040 and also have the same issue where the IDE runs incredibly slow when working with large objects (3000+ lines of code). Also when working with objects that have a large number of dependencies via inheritance etc. What I see is that the CPU core running LANSA.EXE saturates and kee...

Re: VL Repository List Corruption (RESOLVED)

Thanks Mark!
As expected, once I deleted the record for the non-existent component from LX_FIO, the issue got resolved and I was able to see all the objects again, in edit mode! That saved me some serious rework. If LANSA Support is monitoring this post, can you please log this as a defect in V14SP2.

VL Repository List Corruption (RESOLVED)

I have an IDE repository list (LANSA V14SP2 EPC142040) that has over 100 objects in it. A component that was in the this Repository list was deleted, as it was no longer needed. That seems to have caused issues in the list. Now, when I open the contents of the repository List from within the IDE Rep...
