Additional tools
Progress Developer Studio for OpenEdge tools that are not integral to the Visual Designer, but have particular value while you are building an OpenEdge GUI for .NET, include:
*Class Browser - The Class Browser offers a tree view that provides detailed information on the classes and .NET assemblies defined in or referred to by your projects.
*Meta Catalog - The Meta Catalog enables you to create a comprehensive index of the code base in both your local workspace and your team's shared source code control system.
*ABL Editor - The standard OpenEdge code editor is tightly linked to the Visual Designer to allow you to inspect and edit the source code for design classes and related procedures.
*Outline view - When a Visual Designer editor buffer has focus, the Outline view provides a hierarchical list of the form and its contents, allowing you to select, copy, re-parent, and delete controls.
*Debugger - The Debugger provides a full set of tools for testing and debugging ABL code.
