WDSc’s Outline View is Handy
January 18, 2006 Hey, Ted
For developers using Websphere Development Studio Client (WDSc), here is a tip that has been worth its weight in gold to me. The outline view is a very powerful tool. It can be enhanced even more than the default way it is loaded. For example, in the default mode the outline shows the files that are defined, the record format, and all the fields. Outline view can also show the source line numbers where the fields, indicators, subroutines, etc. are accessed. Clicking on a line number in the Outline view takes you to that line in the LPEX editor. This can speed analysis and coding.
To enable these additional features go to the Preferences under the Window menu, and then:
Refresh your Outline view after these changes are made.
I hope this helps other developers. They won’t need a printed compiled listing any more.
