I thought it was IBM only commands, but wanted to see if someone had a trick up their sleeve.
Your thought on binding the editor: I tried doing this and the Binding Directory Editor does NOT come up in the list to choose from.
Plus, it would seem that the TurnOver Plugin only seems to support edit/browse on objects with source.
I know that TurnOver will handle creating the compile command. I think I am more in the ballpark as Dave where there is a bunch of modules and service programs to bind together and it is just easier to have an object that has that list.
Using RSE is usually the way I end having to do it, but it would just be nice to have it all in one place. :)

Sorry Scott, the User Actions call IBM i commands.
I tried this same method to invoke the Profound UI DSPF editor, since they had an RSE edit option in their plugin.
Couldn’t get it to work and our developers added an option to our plugins context menu.
If you could associate the Binding Directory editor as an editor for *BNDDIR in the associations it might work, that works for WebSmart.
A general rule of thumb (please correct if I’m wrong) if a User Action invokes a command that has an interactive portion it won’t work because there is no way a User Action can bring up an interface in RDi.
So for you the correct workaround is to build an RSE filter over the programer or project library for the Worklist and edit it in this way after you checked it out.
You can easily add the RSE Navigator view to the TurnOver perspective and then Save as to make your own customized perspective.
I like adding the outline view as well.
Question, you do know you don’t have to use Binding Directories in TurnOver as once you compile the program with the new module in your Worklist library then TurnOver will manage the compile for you with the correct list of modules/service programs. It is a pain to manually compile and have to specify the correct list of modules, we use a similar method but we have an interface for editing the list of objects bound in.
Thanks Jeff Tickner
