Variable Details dialog
The Variable Details dialog displays information about a single data element. It is particularly useful for viewing information about the attributes and fields of HANDLE objects.
This dialog appears when you select an entry in the Variables view and select Variable Details from either the context (right-click) menu or the OpenEdge menu.
Information appears on one or more of four tabs: Attributes, Fields, Array, and Value. In the Value column (but not on the Value tab), in-place editing is supported where valid.
The following controls are available:
View field
The name of the data element.
View command
To update the display after changing the entry in the View field.
Add Watch command
To add the current element to the list being monitored in the Expressions view.
Close command
To dismiss the dialog.
