It would be nice if the debugger automatically showed the variables used on the current line at the top of the variables view. Kind of like IntelliJ ;)

@Martin: Similar to the new feature in 7.4 where you show the current variable to be assigned when breaking on a field breakpoint or the exception when breaking on a exception breakpoint?
Comment 2 Martin Entlicher 2013-09-06 18:39:57 UTC
I'm afraid of the performance impact of this.
To find the variables used on the current line, it means that there has to be some Java parsing involved. The parser tasks can sometimes unpredictably block for some amount of time, if there are more of them scheduled to run or if there are some recent code changes. I'm not sure this is worth the possible problems...
