I use Dev Style in RDi without any issue.

The lone problem I found with it was context assist. If you were using a
dark theme when context assist would pop up you would only see a white
square. I contacted the developers of Dev Style and they had it fixed in a
few days. Past that I haven't had any other issues.

What I wish they would do with RDi is stop using Eclipse versions that
might as well be 400 years old. I understand using Eclipse, but I wish they
would have kept Code/400 up to date instead of jumping on the Eclipse

I LOVE the "DevStyle" plugin, but sadly, it has given me headaches with
RDI. I DO NOT RECOMMEND it for RDI. I uninstalled it.

But, absolute love it for eclipse without RDI.

I agree with Mike, contact the developer of the Plugin for fixes.

Here is the link to plugin, for those who curious:

PS. Love the updates to RDI, such as

o Better code assist, and defaulting the parameters of the porotype! Love
o > Refactor > Extract Procedure
o RPG Language updates to allow Method overloading, whoops, I mean
procedure overloading for IBM i 7.4 or TR/PTF updates

I am like a kid in the candy store, so many new things to help me to my
job BETTER. LOVE RDI for my job!

Bravo to the RDI Development team! Kudos!

I'm enjoying the concise technical description. ;) Have you tried
contacting the plugin developer as that seems to be the instigator here.

OK so on my Linux system I had a clean install of 0.6 without any plugins.
I rarely used RDi so I thought I'd try updating that and see how things go.
The initial upgrade went fine, but then after installing the plugin Dev
Style which gives a dark theme to Eclipse, everything goes nuts. If I try
to open a member to edit I get a tab that opens with a big red circle at
the corner.

I'd send print screen but you can't on this list.
