Disabled Expression Evaluation menu item
Product Version: NetBeans IDE 7.2 (Build 201207171143)
Java: 1.6.0_34; Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM 20.9-b04
System: Windows 7 version 6.1 running on amd64; Cp1252; en_US (nb)

The menu item of "Expression evaluation" under the menu Window - Debugging is always disabled although I stopped at a breakpoint and NetBeans waits for further user commands. In the "Debugging" window the current method is marked in bold text and the thread is displayed in the tree header. NetBeans therefore stops at the breakpoint but I am unable to evaluated any expressions by hand. The programming language of the application is Java.
This is an evaluation window from C/C++ debugger. This is why it's disabled.
Please use Debug -> Evaluate Expression... instead.
This needs to be made more UI consistent I guess. Therefore I'm leaving this opened as an UI issue.
