One of the most painful problems to me is when context assist stops working.  I find it happens more often than not in SQLRPGLE members and I've tried to find the culprit.  I just narrowed it down pretty significantly, although I still have some work to get a minimal case.

If, in my SQLRPGLE program, I have a workstation file declared as so:

       dcl-f CEPANZD workstn indds(dsInds);

Then CTRL-space stops working.  Since this is my standard workstation definition, this means that I effectively cannot use SQLRPGLE without giving up significant functionality.  Now that I know the line of code that breaks it, I'm going to try to create a minimal case, but this is the root cause.  I just wondered if anyone else had noticed the loss of context assist.

I can make context assist come back by commenting out just that declaration.  Uncomment it, and context assist stops working again.  So I have a rather half-baked work around, although even then I can't prompt for my display file fields.

This is really bad for me.  It has actually caused me not to use SQLRPGLE in complex programs because I rely on the context assist.
