Hi all,

I post on the Newcomers section a couple of hours ago and thought that it might be more adequate to post the question here:

When debugging Ant scripts, all the properties are displayed in the "Variables" tab but it's hard to "watch" the properties when the Ant script/macro starts to be complex. So I was wondering if there is a way to use the "Expression" tab to specify that I want to watch an Ant property. Is there a special syntax to do so?

If not, someone could point me in the good direction (in the sources) to try to implement that feature? I'm not familiar with Eclipse sources and the plug-ins...

Thanks!
Alex

In the "Variables" tab,you can just see the names of the properties.To watch them,maybe you can have a try in these ways:

solution1:click the property in the Variables window ,and you'll get it.But you can only see the string type in this way.

solution2:choose the property and press "ctrl+shift+I" on the keybroad,you'll watch it.

solution3:set a breakpoint where the property lies ,and run.
