Map IDs showing in GUI but not in BSSCDefault.h

While comparing our BSSCDefault.h to the client's list of map IDs, and found that some IDs listed in the RH Edit Map IDs dialog do not appear in the BSSCDefault.h file.

I didn't find this exact problem in the archives, but in a few other Map ID topics I found that Peter Grainge suggested checking the Map ID Report (e.g.Re: Mapped topic names missing in Map ID dialog).

When I look at the report, the ID is there. Peter, are you saying that looking at the BSSCDefault.h file in an external text editor is not accurate, and it will work as long as it is showing in the report?

Are you looking at the .h file included with the output (i.e. in the \!SSL!\ sub-folder) or in the project folder itself? I ask, because even though I tell RH to include it as a Baggage File, I find that I have to manually include in the output folder after generating.

In the project folder. We also (thanks to a different conversation with you) include it manually in the output folder after generating.

The other thread reported the editor was wrong but the .h file was correct. You seem to have the opposite problem.

The .h file showed what was in the report, it was the dialog that was wrong and what the poster found was that what was in the .h file is what worked. In other words it was the dialog that was the problem.

I assume in the Edit Map IDs dialog you have selected the file rather than all IDs.

Yes, I have the opposite problem, but took away from that thread that the report is more accurate than the .h file. Wrong?

In the Edit Map IDs dialog, whether I choose <All Map Files> or <Project Map File>, it shows the same group of IDs, and these are reflected in the report (and the report says they are in the BSSCDefault.h file). When I look at the BSSCDefault.h file, some are missing.

Unfortunately we are at a remove from the client/developers, so cannot easily test if its working nonetheless. Different developers have provided different lists of map IDs, and are not sure which are actually called anymore, and some have different IDs than were used in the legacy project. Sigh.

Just confirmed that including the .h file in the \!SSL!\output\ folder fails to add it in RH11 too (was testing in RH10 before).

Curiouser and curiouser...I copied a sister product's RH project to test/play with (because it's smaller), and discovered it had the same problem - some IDs showing in the Edit Map IDs dialog don't appear in the .h file. However, for this product I do have access to the latest system that the help was updated on, and the help for the "missing" ID does open the correct topic. So it seems the GUI/report are accurate and the mapping works even if the .h file doesn't appear to be complete ???

Guess we'll just keep our fingers crossed and wait to see if they report any broken calls.

In your case, yes. In the other thread it was the opposite!
