Obsolete commands usually means that in some future version it will no longer exist. This is a warning – you should replace these commands with more modern equivalents.
We had similar issues with other commands with an old Studio 6.1 app. When it moved to 10.1, suddenly it stopped working properly, because “Set return value” (which was a holdover from Omnis 7 days), was flagged as obsolete command for all versions of Omnis Studio, was now completely removed, and in Studio 10 it was commented out in the code. We had to do a quick edit and replace it with a “quit method returns <value>” instead. We were lucky it only appeared 162 times in the code 🙂
Moral of the story: replace the obsolete commands at your leisure now, and save the heartache when you upgrade and suddenly find they have been completely removed!
A man rushed into the doctor’s office and shouted, “Doctor! I think I’m shrinking!”
The doctor calmly responded, “Now, settle down. You’ll just have to be a little patient.”
