This view may give you an idea of what I am suggesting. Only thing is Object Explorer is reflection based tool and shows values in current JVM. (See contrib to try out ObjectExplorer). (153.04 KB, image/jpeg)

Description _ sandipchitale 2005-04-03 06:37:17 UTC
I would like to see:

1. Name of the variable (icon should indicate modifiers)
2. Actual Type
3. Value
4. Declared type (because the declared type may be different from actual type)
5. Declaring type (because a field may be an inherited field)
6. Object id

Sorting based on all columns.

Ability to see the long value strings in a detail pane.

Ability to display value using special formats based on the actual type and/or 
declared type.

Directly modify values of primitive types and string variables.

Directly modify values of Dates, Colors using property editors (may be asking 
g for too much).

Copying the contents of the table as comma separated values or XML.

Comment 3 Roman Ondruska 2006-06-16 13:56:08 UTC
OK, this is doable -> Will be considered. Note that it is already possible to
directly modify values of primitive types and strings (just double click end
edit the value in Local Var window).
Comment 4 _ sandipchitale 2007-04-09 21:44:04 UTC
I would also like to see the popup actions to jump to the Declared type and 
the Actual type of the variables.

Eclipse debugger supports all these functions.

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.
