No Structureview in Debugger?
« on: October 20, 2016, 07:13:14 pm »
Just fired up the debugger and wondered when i tried to inspect Self or Sender in events. The Local-Variables window shows only addresses, while a hover over the variable on the source displays the whole structure. Is this normal and has not been implemented or is something wrong?

yes this is normal.

You can use the watches window, but it also just shows the whole (it has a side panel (magnifier tool btn), that you can activate, so you can see the content multi-line)

The watches window has the option to show "Sender: TObject" as TObject (default) or TWhateverInstanciatedClass (see properties)

There also is the debug inspector, that shows the data in a grid. And allows to double click properties to inspect nested data.

But there is no tree-like viewer with +/-
