I agree with Edmund, although I don't have his vested interest! ;-)

If I remember, some of the bugs you reported were related to national language. I have not had any of that stuff, I'm working on RDp 7.6, not sure if that is still available - it does have the App Diagram.

As for SEP, if it is problematic in RDp 8, again, I have found almost no problems with it in 7.6 - and you can always use it on the green screen - it's not all that difficult there. I usually STRDBG in one session, set the SBREAK, then, when the message pops up that a job has hit the breakpoint, I copy the STRSRVJOB and then hit Attn key and take option 1 to start the alternate session - then I just have to toggle between sessions to manage the message and the debug. Ba-da-bing!

I've actually been surprised at your response to some problems, David, that seemed trivial to me. Yes, I sometimes have had a hate-hate relationship with these tools - but that was mainly back in v5 and v6 early on.

Anyhow, there is no software without bugs, I'm told - and IBM are really good - and especially this team - about getting things fixed, in my experience.

My advice? Get the product, then, when issues arise, go to IBM and not to this list. Submit a service request - the official channels are still the best, although the Rational team are diligent about watching this list - how DO they sift out the chaff?

Vern

David,
Sorry to hear of that decision. In the mean time we have shipped one
service release 8.0.0.1 in Dec that may have addressed the bugs you are
referring to. And more service packs are on their way. But to get these
service levels you have to be a paying customer. I hope you are able to
persuade your management to take the leap for the sake of your productivity
and the others on the team.

Amazing!
So now I have shift ctrl F when I'm on the keyboard and wheelUp when I'm on
the mouse!

What a pity that it's my last day with the trial version of Rdp V8.0
I'll be wearing that mouse wheel out whenever possible for the rest of
today.

Tomorrow It'll be back to the Arkansas Chuggabug (WDSc V6.0)
I will miss my user actions and the application diagram that I only
recently discovered.

What a pity about the many bugs and SEP that didn't work. We won't be
buying until the thing works properly. For my part, I can't wait for the
next trial version to come out!

First you need a mouse with a wheel.

Then in RDx it's Window / Preferences / LPEX Editor / User
Mouse Actions.

In here, put wheelDown as the mouse action, select "showAll"
from the Action dropdown list, and click Set.
Then put wheelUp as the mouse action, select
"filterSelection" from the Action dropdown list, and click Set.

Click OK and then, when editing, you can proceed as I
described in the earlier email.

A while back, Joe Pluta had an article somewhere (don't remember
where) where he told of something he did.

He mapped the following mouse functions:

wheelDown --> showAll
wheelUp --> filterSelection

Then, one can highlight a selection (variable name or any
other text
for that matter) and mouse-wheel-up. Viola. Only the lines with
that
variable
(or other text) are shown. Mouse-wheel-down and the
entire source
is
shown.
This isn't exactly what you're looking for, but I've
found it to be
very handy.

If it isn't helpful, just ignore this. If it IS helpful, I can't
take credit anyway. :)
I'm not generally a mouser, but it would be nice to have
this in the
archives or wiki. Could you share the exact mouse event
and action here?
