Hey guys,

Let's see if I can explain what the issue is so you can tell me if it is a bug and how to report it better. Although as the title implies it is related to Javascript, I think it was a behavior changed on WTP 3.3.1 that got rollback on 3.3.2 .

Before updating, the Outline panel of Eclipse would not "find" functions that were two level deep in an object. For example, on the below file:

//file 1
var GOBJ = {};
GOBJ.dataA = {};
GOBJ.dataB = false;

//file 2
var GOBJ;
GOBJ.functions = {};
GOBJ.functions.funcA = function(){};
GOBJ.functions.funcB = function(){};
GOBJ.functions.funcC = function(){};

Before updating to WTP 3.3.1 , the outline panel for file 2 would be empty, the only thing showing was GOBJ:___GOBJ(). After the update, the functions started appearing correctly. So the Outline would now be:


And clicking on the name would correctly send you to the line. Today I update Indigo completely, and as part of the update WTP got updated to 3.3.2 and the behavior is now the same as on 3.3.0. Now since I updated the fully Indigo\PDT package today, the problem might be somewhere else, but since it only started working on 3.3.1 I think it might be in here.

I have the same issue. Functions below the 1st level of the object are not shown in the outline. I'm on Luna 4.4.2 WTP JavaScript 1.6.100.

How can I get these functions showing in the outline?

it seems that nesting of elements > Level 1 (i.e. 2 levels in total) are not supported as of Juno.
