NetBeans IDE 5.0  on jdk1.5.0_05
When Local Variables view is visible and user is stepping, there is no
indication if the view is already refreshed or still pending. This can be
confusing when there is many variables of simple types (like int, double, char),
whose evaluation takes too short time to display "Evaluating..." message.
To change the behavior would be a big UI change, which can not be done in this
stage. Also, when you stop stepping/continuing/etc... for a while, you're sure
that the values are up-to-date. The only problem is, that when you step fast
enough, the view does not refresh (to enable fast stepping).
Changing to enhancement and scheduling for the next release (promotion G).
Jano, do you have an idea how to solve this from the UI/usability point of view?
A solution can be to make the Local Variables view empty as soon as the debugger
is resumed (but that would cause a lot of redrawing) or display simply N/A as a
value of all variables...
