[archive] Overlay Generated Code

[Migrated content. Thread originally posted on 18 April 2005]

We would like our developers to always use screen generator's generated code but we realize that there will be times when the generated code has to be manually modified. We are worried that
newer programmers could potentially lose the changes. Setting the options to not generate would not work since 99% of the screen code would be used.
We would like to have a way to intercept the generated code prior to the compile and replace the generated code with the changes - kind of like a precompiler step.
Is there any good way to do this?
