Description

The To-Do List displays a list of development tasks you need to do for the current application. The entries on the To-Do list are created:

  • Automatically by most PowerBuilder wizards to guide you through the continued development of objects of different types that you will need to build the application or component specified by the wizard
  • Anytime by you when you are working in a painter and want a link to a task that you want to remember to complete

Some To-Do List entries created by wizards are hot-linked to quickly get you to the painter (and the specific object you need) or to a wizard. You can also create an entry yourself that links to the PowerBuilder painter where you are working so you can return to the object or script (event/function and line) you were working on when you made the entry.

When you move the pointer over entries on the To-Do list, the pointer changes to a hand when it's over a linked entry. Here the linked entry will open the Project wizard you need.

Notice the linked entry on the To-Do List in the screen below. This entry and all the others were generated by the Template Application wizard. The entry reminds you to register new sheets with the sheet manager service, which is a nonvisual user object created by the wizard. Because the selected entry is linked, double-clicking it has automatically opened the Window painter and taken you to the place in the Script view where you will register new sheets.

You can export and import a To-Do List. Doing this is useful if you want to move from one computer to another or you need to work with To-Do Lists as part of some other system such as a project management system.
