Description haskovec 2010-08-30 20:32:22 UTC
I am debugging an app that has a DOM Parser in it.  As it stands I am browsing the dom tree in the variable display of the IDE to look at where different values are.  This enables digging into a lot of structures in the tree and then clicking on inherited fields and clicking the first child variable to find the child node.  The problem is every time I expand another node in the variables it moves what is visible in the viewport of the window.  I guess it sees that the length of the data is longer so it readjusts the scroll bar to the new length, but it moves the location the viewport of the window is looking at, so I constantly have to scroll back to where I was click the next node and repeat.  It is pretty tedious and when I expand an object I shouldn't lose my place in the viewport and have to find it again, it should stay put like native apps do.
