Re: Last Action Details, where are they stored?

Would have been nice to have received a response on this one. LANSA should consider adding an export list filter on the IBMi that shows a list of exports that were created between a pair of dates.

Last Action Details, where are they stored?

I'm looking to run a query against the LANSA internal table that stores last action details for Export Lists and Functions. I'd like to produce a list of all Export lists that were created/modified after a certain date, same for Functions etc. Does anyone know where the "Last Action details" informa...

Any Development Teams using LANSA with VCS?

Just opening a thread for folks that are using LANSA environments with a VCS system (GIT/TFS). Some pertinent questions. Q1: How do you use your VCS for code comparisons and merges? Any issues/watchouts? Q2: How do you manage development to QA source code and compiled object movements? Q3: Work with...

Vote for Documentation change

I'd like to vote for the addition of a single web page listing ALL the BIF's that are currently available within LANSA, along with their brief descriptions. The current page is cumbersome to navigate. If we can get a single page, one could open it and search for a keyword in there and see the releva...

Re: Where is DC@OSVEROP in Windows?

Thanks Casey, do you know where this setting would be stored in a runtime environment (no IDE installed)? Would this setting be relevant for a runtime environment?

Where is DC@OSVEROP in Windows?

Anyone know where data area DC@OSVEROP settings are stored in a Windows environment?
I suspect it's in an internal table or .dat file somewhere?
The documentation is IBMi centric when it comes to these settings and ignores the Windows platform.

Saving a Text Search takes minutes

So I ran a text search in my VL IDE's (V13SP2 and V14SP2), it gave me 430 matches, I clicked to save them. It took around 5 minutes to save each list. Should it take that long to save such a list in the IDE? I wonder what it's doing under the hood to take up so much CPU and time to save the list?

Better Text Search in the IDE

It would be great if the Text Search feature was multithreaded, such that one thread could search for say Forms, while another thread searched for Functions etc. If the user could set the number of threads, that would be icing on the cake. In todays world of multiple CPU cores, this would be a welco...

Re: Intelligent Check-Out

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...

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...

Is there an equivalent import for the IBMi server too?

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...

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,...
