I may submit an RFE - at least one developer has used RLU for a very long time, it has served us well so long as he uses STRRLU to create the objects. This is in the context of using Turnover for change management, which can use STRRLU if you are in the green screen.

Now as I'm using RDi, things get "interesting". Turnover will preserve creation parameters or use an existing or reference object, so that works for me in their RDi perspective.

New object? If we use a reference object, we can get our typical parameters. If not, I will have to set things up myself - that's OK.

So I'll have to think about this stuff - maybe having the file-level stuff available without having to set up a "report" would take care of a lot of this - and even further to push those values into a create command?

OK, enough for now!!

Thanks again
Vern

Hmm, you are the first to raise that requirement.

Way back in CODE/400 we had to bend over backwards to maintain RLU
comments. But it appeared that very few people used RLU and it was
limiting to an old design, so we didn't decide to persist our reports as
RLU comments.
It might be possible to have an action what would read the RLU comments and
import what is valid into Report Designer reports.
This would have to be voted on in an RFE and get sufficient votes. I don't
know if there is enough demand to do that versus some of the other things
requested.

Thx, Edmund

Has there been any talk about using RLU settings comments? It appears
that the RDi designer doesn't modify them, which is good.

I think it'd be helpful _not_ to have to create a "report" in order to
set the pagesize to work with in the designer. These settings apply to
all formats, so it makes sense that I could set them as universal and be
used in all the formats.

Whadya think?

The size of the report is specified on the CRTPRTF compile command.
All environment and runtime context to simulate the report on paper
(device attributes, order of records written with which data) are all
specified in the top Report controls section.

Rob

I struggle with this some, as well - I'm not sure of the official way,
but what I did was select the "Reports" radio button, then I was able to
specify page size on the right.

I would think there is some properties thing, but I've not seen it yet.

Hi All,

This is the first time I've tried to maintain a printer file in RDi.

The output extends to 230 characters wide but the canvas (in RDi) only
shows 132 characters.

Does anyone know how to change the width of the canvas?

Thanks,

Rob
