Development Environment Release 61

Hello,

Just a small thing where sometimes when you'll create an action you'll need an input/output/local variable that is based on a structure. Instead of making a new variable and fill in the right name (where you sometimes first check the name of the (referenced) structure it would be nice to have the option to copy a structure and paste that structure as an input/output or local variable to an action.

Just like this:


Kind regards,
Evert

Nice idea !!!

Hey Evert,

I'm happy to announce that we just implemented your idea and, since last Service Studio version, you can now copy a structure and paste it as a new variable/input/output:

Thanks a lot for your idea! As usual, you can see your contribution in the product release notes:

Hope you enjoy it!

Merged this idea with 'Service Studio: Copying a Structure or Entity in a screen should create that type variable' (created on 22 Mar 2020 08:00:47 by Vincent Koning)

For a project I'm working on I created a lot of structures. These structures are used as Input Variable for a screen or block. Today I tried to copy the structure and then past it into the screen (see screenshot for where exactly). I expected (or hoped) that this would result in a local variable with the same name and the same datatype. It didn't. 

But this action felt so natural to do so that I think this would really be a great addition to Service Studio to speed up development.


I copied these:

And pasted the copied Structures here:
