[SHARING] Using Visual Studio Code with WebFOCUS

There has been some discussions regarding using Visual Studio Code with WebFOCUS. Up to now, there has been an extension in the Visual Studio Marketplace that provided great syntax highlighting, but not much else. I don't think that there will be any additions to it, as there has been no update to that extension since the initial release in May.

So, I decided to fork that GitHub Repository, add new features to it and publish my own extension, FREE for everyone to use. You can find it here: https://marketplace.visualstud...Name=steebn.webfocus

I have added in a lot of code snippets, including all of the built in WF functions from the SYSSQLOP system table (as of 8202M):



I am continuing to add snippets to it and will update often. Let me know via GitHub of any new feature requests and feel free to leave a review on the VS Marketplace of what you think.

Hopefully this will help others out as much as it has helped me and my co-workers.
