...a really neat feature of Eclipse is the use of the Inspector. When an application is in "Debug" mode, obviously we can step through the code line by line using F5, but what if we need to view the value of a class or method member? Once you have located either the public or private member all you really need to do is place your cursor upon the member.... CTRL + Shift + I will evoke the Inspector. If you press the down arrow once you should be able to read the value of that member as long as it is hydrated. In particular circumstances additional information is displayed. If you want to view the contents in greater detail, just press the TAB key. Ok, here's the rub, usually if we have already used the TAB key, we simply use TAB + Shift to move backwards. In Eclipse 3.3 you need to use CTRL + SHIFT + TAB to move backwards. To close the view, use ALT + DASH + C.... Jim James M.
