Can we calm down a little bit?
"Write Once
Compile Anywhere"
Sounds great ...

Okey, .tag was a bad example, but the problem is still there.
I have now been advised not to use the .tag, okey will do so.

Windows - Lazarus 1.6 r51630 FPC 3.0.0 i386-win32-win32/win64
Ctrl-F5 key do not work for me.
Watch List do not work with .tag (Just I shall not use it)

This feels like a wrench without the roller, use it as a hammer instead.  %)
OS : Win 10 64bit Home * Win 7 64bit Professional
Lazarus 1.8.4 r57972 FPC 3.0.4 i386-win32-win32/win64
Delphi 7.0 (Build 4.453)

Happy Birthday Thaddy.

Like I said before... the watch-list doesn't work for ANY property under Windows.
Are you saying you can view for instance TButton.Caption or TEdit.Text in a watch-list under Windows ????

Even if you create a new class and make a new property... THAT property can't be shown in the watch-list (under Windows). Only the direct class-variables (like FCaption, FTag etc.) can be shown in the watch-list. But this topic was about using direct "property" in the watch-list !!!

So, although the advise about not (mis)using tag is sound... it doesn't help OP to show a (or any) property in the watch-list.
