Re: [cdt-dev] Modifying what is shown in the variable detail view

Hi Phil,
It would help to know more cotext of what you're trying to do.  If you want to change the detail pane content in a big way, you should create a custom detail pane, which the user can choose instead of the number format one.  If you're just trying to add a new number format, then you should do that at the service level.

Hello all,


I’m trying to update what is displayed in the number format detail view(for the variable and _expression_ view etc…). I’ve added a menu item and handler that updates a new property I’ve added to IDebugVMConstants.


If I look at the IPresentationContext in DetailJob when the detail pane is being updated then the context has the new property I have set (with the correct value) but I can’t see it in the DataRequestMonitor that actually does the update.  


I’ve added it to the list of properties that’s passed to the propertyProvider but when I call getData.get(IDebugVMConstants.PROP_MY_NEW_PROPERTY) in the DRM it always returns null.


I guess that there must be somewhere else that I have to add my new property but I’m not sure where it is. Can anybody offer any suggestions?


Thanks in advance
