[closed] How do I get the Current baseline of the current module

 I am trying to access the objects of the current baseline of the currently selected module in DXL.  I have tried using the baseline function using baseline(nMajor, nMinor, "Current"), but this results in an error since Current isn't really the suffix for the baseline.  What is the easiest way to get the current baseline of a module?  I've been told that I can use the load function to get the baseline as a Module reference, but I need to get a Baseline object, if possible.  If there is anyone out there who can help me out with this, I would REALLY appreciate it.

This appears to be a question about DOORS, not DOORS Next (since DOORS Next does not support DXL), so I've updated the Tags.

Sorry about that.  I didn't see DOORS as a selection when I entered the question.

No problem ... just made the change to redirect to the right folks, and added the comment to make sure that was what you had in mind.

load() does indeed return a Module, and that is what is required by the "for Object in Module do" loop to access objects.

"Baseline baselineInfo(Module m)" can be used to get the Baseline handle for a Module.

Cheers,

 Hello Stuart,


I want to load current version of the module, where user will edit content of the module.

below code helps me load the recent baseline but not the current version
Baseline base = getMostRecentBaseline(current)
Module m = load(base,true)

i have also tried just load, 
Module m = load();

but this is throwing error like  incorrect arguments for function (load);

could you please let me know how can i load the current version of the module?

regards
Arjunapandu

Hello Stuart,

I tried with different combination.


Module m = load(current,null,false);

is this the right way?

Hi Arjuna,

To open the current version of a module use read(), share() or edit() depending on what mode you want to open the module. Definitions below.

Module read(string name[, bool disp[, bool loadStandardView]])
Module edit(string name[, bool disp[, bool silent[, bool loadStandardView]]])
Module share(string name[, bool disp[, bool silent[, bool loadStandardView]]])

So e.g. to open module "/myProject/myModule" in exclusive edit mode for manual editing, using the Standard view, use:

"Module m = edit ("/myProject/myModule", true)"

Regards,
Stuart.
