Description rdelaplante 2011-12-23 14:50:59 UTC
I sometimes find myself using the debugger on Java projects and want to see the value of a Date object.  I have to copy the unix time from the object, then google  a website to help convert it to a human readable format.  I would like to be able to see the human readable format right in the debugger.

We've introduced a generic property editor, that delegates to any registered property editor of appropriate type.
