Are you asking how do you "get" the Outline view? If it is not already open just do Window -> Show View -> Other. The Outline view is under the "Basic" grouping. When you are editing an RPGLE you can then click the "Refresh" button on the Outline view to populate it and get the features I mentioned. Be aware of the following: 1) There are some things that cause it to crash your WDSC. Such as having a member with an H-spec of OPTION(*SRCSTMT). 2) It can be slow if you have a lot of F-specs. It runs at about the same speed as the program verifier. Other than that it is great.

I am trying to find a way to view only subroutines (also possibly comments, etc) in LPEX similar to CODE and navigate to them with a click and then expand again. I did a search on this list and this post was what I found. How do you get to the Outline view? I think this is what I want. It looks like I would also be able to use this for code completion on everything. The %BIF suggestions are nice. Thanks, Craig Strong ** Mark wrote: The LPEX editor used for editing RPG in WDSC 5 has code completion support like Java does. For example, if you start typing a %BIF in an EVAL expression it will pop-up suggestions, as Java might for the methods on a class. There is also a new Outline view (or rather they populate the existing Eclipse Outline view). With RPG source open hit refresh on the outline view and it will pull in a list of all files, fields, indicators, subroutines, procedures etc. used in the code. Clicking on an item takes you to that spot in the source code. I had always noticed these two features, but not until today did I put them together. If you have the outline view populated, then you get very nice code completion in the editor on everything. Such as field name completions on an EVAL or file/format names on a CHAIN. For fields, it even tells you the type and length. Very nice! This all leads to a question. Is there anything in the documentation that describes how to proactively use the cache that is used by the program verifier (and I presume the outline view). For example, can I manually prime my cache with file descriptions so that I can use these cool features without incurring the overhead of resolving all of the references each time? I have poked around and do not see it mentioned anywhere.
