I am new to Java and using Eclipse IDE Photon Release version 4.8.0.
I cannot display variables.

I have tried the followings in accordance with previous online Q&As only to fail:
(1) Select a variable -> right click -> select inspection
* It didn't work because inspection is not on the right click menu.

(2) Window -> Perspective -> Reset perspective
* It didn't work.

(3) Window -> Show view -> Other -> search "variable" and open "Variable View"
* It opened the Variable View window, but nothing is displayed. Changing layout didn't help.

How can I display information about the variables? I would like to see their values step by step when debugging a programme of Tell The Bell.

Fundamental question first: all this happens during debugging, while the debuggee is suspended and a suspend thread is selected in the Debug view, right?

Stopping at a breakpoint and stepping work?

(ad 1) The option in the context menu is called simply "Inspect". Just hovering over the variable should basically have the same effect.

If none of this works, please look for exceptions in the Error Log.
