Inspect-Function in Visual-COBOL for eclipse 2.3


I noticed the following:

Eclipse-Function "Inspect" in JVM-COBOL after move in simple numeric field: not ok
Eclipse-Function "Inspect" in JVM-COBOL after move in simple text field: ok
Eclipse-Function "Inspect COBOL item" in native: ok for both
mouse-over-function: ok for both

can anybody confirm?

thanks in advance

I find that I can inspect both simple text fields and simply numeric fields like pic 9(9) by highlighting the data item with the cursor and then right-clicking and selecting Inspect. This works in both native and JVM projects.

If you only click on the data item and then try inspect you will get an unresolved data-item message so you must highlight the whole name first.

Is this what you are referring to?

Thank you. That is, i was looking for.

I tested again on 2 different PC (Win7).

In unmanaged code it works fine (including hex for "inspect").

In managed code the result is "cannot be resolved (<error(s)_during_the_evaluation>)" in inspect/expressions

(I did highlight the fields before).

I would open a case for this.
