Description Alexander Pepin 2007-09-20 13:30:37 UTC
In my opinion it would be convenient to call "New Watch" window by double clicking on empty area in the Watches window.

From my point of view, the gdb-lite behavior should be identical to the JPDA debugger
whenever possible. I agreed with your previous defect (116151) that a double click
should show the customizer because thats what JPDA does. I don't agree with this because
it would be different behavior than JPDA. One of my strongest goals is that a NetBeans
Java developer can do native development with this module without any failed expectations.

Closing as WONTFIX. If you think the behavior should be different, then reopen this
(or just file a new issue) on debuggerjpda. If Martin changes the double click behavior
then I'll try and match the change.
