Enhancements in ADT 2.16 for Mesage Class Editing



Navigation to Message

If a message class is used in any source code objects such as classes, function modules and report programs, now it is possible to navigate to the message number by using navigate key F3 or CTRL + Left Mouse click.

NOTE: This feature required backend : 7.40 SP04 and 7.31 SP09 onwards.

Where-Used for Messages:

In message class editor it is possible to search where used list items of a selected message number. The context menu option “Get where used list” on the project explorer for message class name results the where used list of the message class. Whereas the button “Get where used list” in the tool bar results the where used list of the selected message on the message class editor and results are displayed in the Search view. Alternatively, user can select a message and press short cut key ‘Ctrl+Shift+G’ to trigger where-used for the message.

NOTE: This feature required backend : 7.40 SP04 and 7.31 SP09 onwards.

Usability Improvements in Message Class Editor

These features work with backend: 7.40 SP2 or 7.31 SP6 onwards

  1. Validation added to restrict user enter message as numbers only
  2. User can’t create duplicate messages. She gets an error as soon as she specify a message with number already present in Message Class
  3. Generating Message Number automatically: When user selects a message and press ‘New’ option, a new empty row is created with the message number in sequence to the message selected. This avoids specifying message number by user explicitly.
  4. Navigation History for even Messages: When user selects some message in sequence and same of different message class, the navigation history is updated.
  5. User can press Ctrl+>, and Ctrl +< to navigate forward and backward in the navigation history.
