  1. Diagnosing Studio and compile time performance problems

    by , 22-Mar-2010 at 08:00 AM (Development Team Blog)
    When it comes to performance working in the Studio as a developer, as opposed to running the application, there are generally two performance critical areas. The first one is the Studio Parser, which is the foundation for CodeSense, Visual Modeling, Go-To-Definition and more. The second performance critical area is when compiling. Unnecessarily long and slow compile times can make for a very frustrating experience working with the Visual DataFlex Studio.

    Sometimes you may not even ...

  2. Suggestions - How we make mountains out of molehills

    by , 21-Sep-2009 at 08:00 AM (Development Team Blog)
    There was a recent forum thread suggesting that the Studio's codesense should provide assistance with index selection for the Find command. We noted that this suggestion actually was implemented but that it was implemented in a slightly different manner. As expected a lively discussion ensued.

    [I]Note: This information applies to Visual DataFlex 2008 and higher[/I]

    During development of 12.0 and 12.1 we received feedback with several suggestions for improving CodeSense. Many of those suggestions, along with some other ideas we had during development, were out of scope for 12.0, so we logged them in our bugtracker database as either bugs/suggestions. During development of 12.1 we fixed a lot of the pure bugs and performance issues, but we didn't have time to address some ...
