Description ulfzibis 2007-08-27 19:35:55 UTC
In the debuggers 'Local Variables' view it's often not very helpful to see the content of a byte[] only as a
space-wasting list of numerical numbers.

I more like to see the content as a text. So a tooltip would be very helpful. It should be in the size of those shown on
hovered items in the Navigator, and the default charset should be retrieved from the project's settings.

Additionally it would be helpful, if the list of byte[] content could be shown as hex values.

I agree this would be useful.
Comment 2 ulfzibis 2008-02-12 11:18:29 UTC
I like to see this in 6.1.

Is this possible ?

Set target-milestone of open issue to TBD (was < 7.3, f.e. 6.8), so the issue doesn't get lost.

Set target-milestone of open issue to TBD (was < 7.3, f.e. 6.8), so the issue
doesn't get lost. This time the target milestone is really set.
