Description Jun Qian 2006-08-31 07:03:52 UTC
Select some variable/expression in the Java editor, right click, select "New
Watch..." from the popup menu, click OK. A new watch is created. The Watches tab
should be brought into foreground. I would bet every user would like to see the
value right away. Why requiring an extra click here?
