We're no longer modifying the ABL Debugger except to fix critical bugs and keep it current with changes to the language. Our focus in on the debugger in Progress Developer Studio.
O.k., how I can attach the internal debugger from PDS to a running process (remote debugging)?
Start the AVM with -debugReady, then create new "Progress External OpenEdge AVM" in the Debug Configurations window
But the new debugger does not allow you to sort it either and even though it has an editor box to show the value of the currently selected variable, it does not wrap....
And on the old debugger you can easily inspect the properties and fields of handle based objects and temp-tables. Not so much in the new one....
I think adding some easy things like sorting and better control flow/resizing control in the old debugger could me made by a trainee if they use something like swing. Currently I needed to inspect handles - the "new" one does not have the ability? Currently I have no access - only OE Studio.
That was 11.5.1.003 by the way. But if I recall correctly those features were available since a while
