Mouse over in Java debugger doesn't show variable values
« on: November 30, 2019, 08:42:45 pm »
In other debuggers, when I'm stopped at a breakpoint and I mouse over a variable, I can see the value of that variable.

But SlickEdit is acting like I'm still editing here, and it shows the definition of the variable, not the value of the variable.

Not sure if this is a bug or a feature request.

No, that should work if you have hotfix 3 installed. 

If the reply from JDWP is slow, you'll see the tagging info in the hover until we get the response.  Or if for some reason we can't get info for that particular variable.  Is it just some variables, or all of them?

I do have hot fix 3.

So went back and checked. It seems when I hover the first time and wait, I still don't see the data. But then if I move the mouse and hover again, then it is showing the data. I checked this for "int", "String" and "Cell" (from Apache POI) types.

It seems I have to go back and hover a 2nd time to see it - would like it the first time. Didn't realize I had to wait, but even waiting it doesn't seem to appear the first time.
