Description Chris Bruner 2011-12-15 16:12:31 UTC
Version:           unspecified
OS:                Linux

Right clicking on a watched variable should have a menu of options 
show char * as string
show as hexadecimal
show as array
break on change

Reproducible: Didn't try

Expected Results:  
Some of these items (like show as array) would bring up a dialog box asking for the length.
Comment 1 Niko Sams 2011-12-17 10:11:28 UTC
That is supported in the Variables tool view. (as Context Menu)

stop on change is also implemented in the variable value tooltip.

What could be improved:
- add context menu to tooltip
- add break-on-change action to context menu
