Assign widget with Delete Option

By Vítor Rosário on 10 Sep 2014

It would be tremendously more eficient for us, if there we can delete the variable and the assign value with one single button. Instead delete 1st the variable and the the value.


If you need to delete 5 variable and the corresponding values instead of:

   click variable

   select all

   delete

   click value

   select all

   delete

   repeat more 4 times the set of action mention.


with the button should be like delete 5 times and done, we dont need to do 30 actions to delete 5 variables.


thank you

This one is a duplicate of this one, and it's also already implemented (Ctrl-D).

At this time (version 9.0.0.38) the way we can edit an "Assign" widget is better but could be improved:
We can delete the line "Variable" or "Value" with a shortcut (SHIFT + DEL), but we have to do it for both lines. My Idea has 2 points:
1. When clicking the "down arrow" (see image) we should see at the end an option called "Delete Variable" or "Delete Value"
2. When we make "Delete Variable" (either with the shortcut SHIFT+DEL or by using my option 1 click) both the "Variable" and "Value" lines should be deleted.

So:
a) if we make delete on the left side of the assignment ("Variable") that assignment should be deleted ("Variable" + "Value").
b) if we do it just on the right side of the assignment ("Value") only the value would be deleted.

Something very obvious that has been missing for a long time. I sometimes have assignment widgets with a dozen assigments or more, that I need to split for example, and that's really a pain.

I've opted this one in version 4.2 of the platform.
It just makes so much sense to do it that way.

At times you want to delete lines in the assign statement. Currently the only way to do it is to select both the value and variable individually, highlight them and delete them.  It would be much easier and faster to have a delete option on a line there so you could delete that set.

+1. Although iirc, there's already an idea for this.

There's at least one previous idea like the one above.
Idea: Assign - Delete Variable and Value improvements
There might be others.

This idea was implemented in OutSystems 10!

"Instead of having to delete both the variable and value, now you can simply select Delete Assignment or press Ctrl+D."
