Issue:

Within a 2E r8.7 model and when I put a 'U' for usage next to a function object, I now get a blank screen with a message at the bottom saying "Expanding model usages ..." But it does not seem to return the usage screen.  It just hangs on this blank panel with message "Expanding model usages...".  

Resolution:

Set the model value 'YCMTCDE' to '*IGN' 

To do this, enter the command:  YCHGMDLVAL MDLVAL(YCMTCDE)   and change the 'model value' to '*IGN'.

 

For reference on this command:  YCMTCDE 

Description: 

Determines whether commented-out (Inactive) code in the Action Diagram will be included when determining Object Usages and References 

Allowed values: 

*YES - Inactive code is included. 

*NO - Inactive code is not included 

*IGN - there is no differentiation between active code and inactive code.
