Description Vojtech Sigler 2009-07-22 14:27:53 UTC
Product Version: NetBeans IDE Dev (Build 200907200201)
Java: 1.6.0_14; Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM 14.0-b16
System: Linux version 2.6.28-13-generic running on i386; UTF-8; en_US (nb)

When I filter rows by values in Watches or Variables (watches integrated) view, some filters cause the "Enter new watch"
row to be hidden. Filters should not apply to this row.

Steps to reproduce:
1) open MemoryView project (, open
2) add line breakpoint to line 200
3) debug file
4) create a watch n
5) invoke popup menu on the value column of this watch and set Show only rows where -> Value > 50
6) the "Enter new watch" row is hidden

I do not think this is easily fixable, the view does not have control of the filter.
But perhaps the filter could be improved to retain lines with empty values.
Comment 2 Martin Entlicher 2009-07-24 22:32:57 UTC
Moving to Outline to fix the filter.

Dup of 168825?

Comment 4 Vojtech Sigler 2009-11-05 10:00:09 UTC
I don't think this is a duplicate. In 168825 the watches disappear and there's no way of showing them again (only
creating them again). In this issue the "Enter new watch" row is just hidden by the filter and reappears once the filter
is removed/reset.
Comment 5 Jiri Rechtacek 2009-11-11 07:36:32 UTC
It's still valid problem. Handling filters in OV should be better as a whole.

Comment 7 Martin Entlicher 2011-02-10 16:11:10 UTC
FYI: see issue #195282. The filter can be removed to make "Enter new watch" row visible again.
Comment 8 Martin Entlicher 2011-11-02 16:53:42 UTC
After the fix of issue #195282 I think that this does not have such priority.
