Something to compile all the programs modified recently, or all the programs affected by the changes to the model, include files etc. 

Our copy also exports these programs to synchronise testing with development.

Deleting a component is kind of nightmare. One has to delete the component (in IDE), delete the signature (in IDE), delete the lst file (listing), delete the compiled component (file in the resources directory) and delete the compiled signature (file in the resources directory).

That’s what we do when we need to delete a component. This should be automated… just deleting a component is very tricky (since the compiled component and signature still exists, it still works in an application).

As for additional menu… one of the most used feature is our own viewer of all changes done. This works upon almost anything… I open a form, see the code and I suspect something wrong… I just open our viewer and see who and when changed what in the component. The same applies to global procedures etc…

Another use of additional menu in IDE is… on shared repository, someone locks the component – I can find out who, when and where locked it.

From the early 1990s, the real benefit of the additional menu was that you could “inject” functionality to the active IDF form.
So the additional menue gives you direct access to the “object under processing”

To boost productivity of the idf.exe, a lot of tools (in the 1990s we had commercial ones like CodeInspector)  used things like:
if $formname = “UUCONC22” ; check you edit a component
call show_forminfo(ulabel.uform)
endif

I really wonder why you think uniface can provide the same usability when dropping the Additional Menu in the first place

I think that when there is no ‘additional menu’ in U10, many companies will stay with U9.
For us it is a big issue, we cannot migrate to U10 until there is some way to integrate the own created forms and hooks

This should be a top priority for Uniface I think
