Give ESQL Editor Toolbar Option Button to Show Source for Selected Element Only
BACKGROUND: Editing ESQL is cumbersome at times. A message flow can have a single ESQL file supporting multiple ESQL MODULES (Compute, Filter, Database), along with FUNCTIONS or PROCEDURES; this could be an ESQL file with a few hundred lines of code.
The point is to make code easier to follow and not be overwhelmed with a single, large ESQL file if the developer is really interested in a small piece.
PROPOSAL: Provide the ESQL editor with a similar feature the Java editor has where, from the toolbar, you can invoke the "Show Selected Element Only" button, then from an ESQL outline pane, the user can choose the FUNCTION, MODULE, or PROCEDURE to edit.
The editor will show only the FUNCTION, MODULE, or PROCEDURE code to edit. This would be a similar concept going back to the VisualAge Java days, too.
