We currently have the /exe UEXTN option (as of U9.2.02) This allows us to directly edit a form component from the command line. It does not allow direct editing of non-form components and apparently is being deprecated.

Use Case

Using a source management tool such as UD6 / Perforce - it is useful to have a context-sensitive right mouse click option to be able to edit the component in the IDF rather than edit the raw XML source.


Nice to have
