workin with complex elements

Aug 17, 2012 at 2:51 PM

To make parsing simpler for Complex Elements I think a small change needs to be made.

In particular adding a publically accessible property of SubElement to the segment class as following

public char SubElement{

get { return _delimiters.SubElement; }


I have never contributed to an open source project before so don't know the rules, can i just download the code make the change and upload?

Is there already a way to do this and I am just not seeing it?

I have exposed the delimiters in changeset 19222:

public X12DelimiterSet Delimiters        {            get { return _delimiters; }        }

so you should be able to access segment.Delimiters.SubElementSeparator.

Each open source site works differently.  Some sites allow everyone to do check-ins and then a configuration manager accepts branches into the trunk.  The codeplex site lets you upload patches and the coordinator reviews them and manually integrates them into the source.
