Use Filter and Search to Find Code Inspection Rules

Visual Expert can check PowerBuilder, Oracle (PL/SQL) and SQL Server (T-SQL) code against hundreds of code inspection rules.

You can customize code inspection results by configuring or disabling some of the rules.

To help you easily find the rules you are looking for, the Code Inspection window now includes a search field and filtering options.

How to use the Search field to find Code Rules?

  • Open the Code Inspection Settings window.
  • Go to the ‘Search’ field and type in a relevant keyword to filter the rules.
    Search for Code Inspection Rule
  • The result will populate over the 3 sets of code inspection rules (PowerBuilder, Oracle and SQL Server tabs).
    For example:
