Search for variable values during debugging ? [message #481579] Fri, 21 August 2009 16:08 Go to next message

Hi there!

While debugging big foreign (Java) projects, I often search for some value that has been set somewhere, but I don't know where. And if the variable's hierarchy is deep enough, this search can become a never ending story.
I've used the normal "Variables" view for this so far, which allows for a search with Strg+F. But this search has 2 big constraints: First, it only scans the current hierarchy level and second, it searches varaible names only - not their values.

So, is there a plugin that might help me or even a standard-eclipse way?

Best regards!
Rice

Check out the eVars plug-in: http://code.google.com/p/evars/

Hope this helps,

Thanks for that, I tried it, but it's not too comfortable.
Any other soslutions?
A search for the variable names themselves through the hierarchy would help too in some cases!
