Ever been working on somebody else’s code with their cruddy old custom string class and come across this?
…only to drill down into the object to find more of this:
Do you see my actual string there at the very bottom? Man… I’d really hate to have to do this every damned time I want to get at a string! Luckily, that empty summary box is not the final word in debugger previews. Instead you can use a handy little scripting language to create DATA FORMATTERS that will do the work for you. Check this out!
BAM! You win. By the way, in case you were wondering: The ‘:s’ gives you the summary field of the value you’ve drilled down to.
P.S. — You can build Data Formatters into your project via a Bundle, instructions HERE
