Description Martin Entlicher 2006-10-09 17:11:57 UTC
For some views in debugger we need to be able to define our own Comparator for
the 0-th column (composed from Nodes). There is used Comparator for Properties,
but Nodes are compared by their display names. This does not make much sense in
some situations (call stack (we've obtained several reports already that it
looks very silly to have call stack sorted by names of clases and methods),
breakpoints (we're hacking the line numbers with spaces to have correct decimal
order), array indexes, etc.)

I tried to find the getNestedComparator method in the 6.8 documentation but it seems the change is not implemented there. Did I miss something?
