Will RPG Next Generation editor show the source member description?

This is a pain not being able to see it in RPGNG (RPG Next Generation is an excellent RPG coding tool) but I still have to revert to things like PDM find all source members with specific descriptions against them….

For example:

I want to see all RPG source code used for the ‘ABCDEFG’ project

RPG Next Generation

gives me all the source code with the letter ‘PRTLIB’ as part of the member text:

But the RPG/NG view just shows the member name…

I’ll add this to the wishlist on the flytrapbug thing…

😉

NOTE: RDi has been upgraded and rebranded and is now know as MI Workplace
