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.
