Description Maros Sandor 2004-03-01 16:06:43 UTC
We should emphasise in the docs that the user 
must NOT compile the class manually before he 
issues "Fix&Continue". If he does that, the class 
will not be updated. See Issue #40440.
Comment 1 Patrick Keegan 2004-03-01 17:04:22 UTC
I'll update the Fix topic. Also adding as a relnote since this is a
change from 3.5.

Comment 3 Patrick Keegan 2004-03-01 17:16:05 UTC
fixed in trunk. Maros, could you please verify? I also made a few
other small changes that I want to make sure are correct.
Comment 4 Maros Sandor 2004-03-02 09:26:53 UTC
I read through the Fix documentation and found 2 minor 
1) "Modify your code and save the changes." ... you don't have to 
save the file
2) "If the most recent call belongs to the changed class, an alert 
box is opened." ... the alert box is opened only if you modify the 
currently executing method, ie. you may change other methods in the 
same class freely
Comment 5 Patrick Keegan 2004-03-02 15:07:51 UTC
Maros, would the following changes suffice?

< <li>Modify your code and save the changes.
