This is the third in our series of ongoing tutorials on WDSC.
The first tutorial showed you how to configure your workbench, the second how to connect to your System i host. This third tutorial will then leap you directly into your source code so that in just three quick steps, you will be editing your programs in WDSC! You'll learn how to use one of the System i programmer's favorite tools: the Open Member dialog, which you can use to open any source member on the System i by just typing in the library, source file, and member names. You'll also learn how to access this powerful feature with a simple key press.
