Title: View escaped strings
Post by: Azethoth on May 06, 2015, 07:45:17 pm
In Visual Studio there are a variety of viewers for a string. These will process escape codes etc. and then display the result as XML, text, etc.

My goal is to be able to see a json string. Is there anything in SlickEdit that lets me "preprocess" a string before displaying it during debugging?

Looking at escaped json defeats the purpose of using json to begin with: human readable data. This is an issue for me for all string types: the escaped version is nice for the computer but the escapes makes it unreadable for humans.
