Add edits to Watch Window

Post by bkcarter333 » Wed Dec 12, 2007 6:49 am

In the pre PS 4 days, I would use the Windows Script Debugger to debug VBScripts. One of the features that it provided was the ability to enter expressions into a window that would execute immediately. This was very useful in that it gave me the ability to change a value in a variable, or test a new function construct while the debug was live, and the values were avaiable.

PrimalScript 4.1 and 2007 both have builtin debuggers that are nice, but as far as I can tell a lacking the ability to manipulate the values "in-flight".

I am not sure how the best way to implement it would be, but it appears that if the expression window could be edited, it might do the trick.

From a user interface perspective, that's a good suggestion. I'm not sure what would have to go on under the hood to make that happen; some of the stuff MS does with the Windows Script Debugger are "not documented" to say the least, and sometimes they're outright hacks :). But consider this "wished for!"
