Powerscript ‘shortcuts’

Here is an often overlooked feature in the PowerBuilder IDE – the ability to define shortcuts to specific pieces of Powerscript.  In the PowerBuilder toolbar there is an icon for the ‘To Do List’;

This brings up a small window which looks like a yellow ‘sticky’ note where you can add stuff.

You can use it to define code shortcuts by opening up the specific PB object method script you want to make the short cut to, right click on the To Do list, choose the Add Linked, then add whatever note you need to jog your memory.

Now you can automatically open that object/script by launching the To Do list and then clicking on the entry.  This assumes you are in the same workspace as the target script.
