I have an array of 100 structures and when I view the array in the Variables window, all the structures are collapsed. I have to click on each one to expand it. Is there a way to expand all the structures at the same time? It is really cumbersome to expand all these items! I did notice that this was the same issue discussed for an earlier version of CW.
I've also noticed that with CodeWarrior 10.3, if when I have the array of 100 structures open (they don't all fit on one screen) and they are selected (with select all). When I right click with the mouse to view them as decimal, only some of them change. Some of the variables on pages I cannot see are still the old display type.
Go to Project->Properties->C/C++ General->Configure Workspace Settings (link at the right up window corner).
In the Preferences window->C/C++->Editor->Folding. Check here all options that are you want to use.
May be this will help you.
Any one know how to open an array of 100 structures quickly in CodeWarrior? Maybe if there isn't a button to do this, is there any macro recording capability? Guess I could get a keyboard that records macros, but I'd rather have the macro built into the tools... 8-<
It looks like this is a long outstanding wish for Eclipse:
The concern above is that 'expand all' is not possible because of potentially recursive structs. But it would be feasible to expand all structs just one level.
So bottom line: this has not been implemented (yet?) in Eclipse.
But it should be possible to write a script using the command line debugger (menu Window > Show View > Debug > Debugger Shell)
I took a quick look at how to use the debugger shell and I didn't see how a script would expand structures in the debugger GUI where the local variables are shown for the running program. Are there examples of code that does something like this around?
