Description Martin Entlicher 2013-03-14 10:47:35 UTC
Add following actions to the contextual menu on components in the GUI snapshot:

1. Properties action, that opens Properties window listing properties of the
   selected component,
2. Create Fixed Watch action, that brings the instance of this component to
   Watches (Variables) window, where it's fields can be examined,
3. Show in Instances View action, that opens the selected component instance
   in Profiler's Instances View.

Fixed by changeset:   251921:35604cda159f
Properties and Create Fixed Watch actions are added.
I consider the Show in Instances View action to have a rare use-case, however, this is covered by Create Fixed Watch and then invoking Show References on the Fixed Watch, thus IMHO there's no need for a direct action.
