Lotus debugger fixes needed

1. Show more than 255 fields

2. Show fields in alphabetical order

3. Allow sorting of variables/objects in alphabetical order

4. Add a 'Watch' tab where we can add variables/objects to keep an eye on their values

    Some more points that would be good

    1. a proper way to break, endless loops

    2. History in debug session, debugger keeps track of all value changes 50 steps backwards

    3. Break when evaluation is true

    4. Run until next Error

    5. Remove annoying switch back to client and back to debugger when starting to debug

    FIVE YEARS of stubborn ignorance. They do not give a shit for the very basics in this product.

    Only a subset of the features requested has been shipped in 12.0.2 : https://help.hcltechsw.com/dom_designer/12.0.2/basic/wn_debuggerimprovement.html
    we will reopen the idea and will work on the other items requested.

    After installing 12.0.2 the first thing I was looking into were all the features marked as shipped from the merged item https://domino-ideas.hcltechsw.com/ideas/IDEAAD-I-29 but non of that is available. What went wrong? How can I enable all these nice features in the Designer?

    Hi HCL,

    thanks for looking into this 350-vote topic.

    I don't want to appear ungrateful, but from what I see (and what is documented in the "what's new" section) the changes shipped are reduced to the fact that an object's variables now are sorted by alphabet, right?

    This is nice but sadly not what was this idea's topic:

    • number of items shown below DOCUMENT > ITEMS is still limited to 256,

    • items aren't sorted by their names yet (instead sorting by index value is now somewhat stringified; I now see a weird sort order like [0] > [100] > [101] > .. > [10] > [110] > .. etc. where before we had strict numeric sorting)

    • and still no "watch" feature...

    OK, we waited for 25 years, we might as well wait a bit longer ;)

    This has been marked as "Shipped" but I don't see "fields" i.e. items in a document sorted alphabetically in 12.0.2.

    Is there something we need to do to turn it on?

    make it so each memory-space (By which I mean each opened document Form and its subforms share the same global memory space, but Dialogs and embedded views have a separate memory space) starts its own instance of the debugger.

    That way, you can:

    1. Debug script in newly opened Documents

    2. Debug script in Dialogs

    3. Debug script in forms with embedded views

    This would make debugging of above kindergarten applications a lot easier!

    Some addons that, in my opinion, will prevent "unwanted" users from applications debugging

    1. Deny debugging for users which haven't at least "Designer" access in ACL.

    2. Deny debugging when no Domino Designer installed.

    3. Option in Domino Desktop poicy to hide all Debugging menu items instead of all Advanced menus

    In few words: make it modern!

    It is the same as 20 years ago, that's a shame (for IBM actually).

    Once activted the LS-Debugger is always active for any  Lotusscript running currently in the client. Please allow to select a list of DB's where it has the permission to run in the current session and switch it off for all others.

    Remove bugs introduced with Domino 10.x (don't know exactly which version introduced this), like "Stop Debugger" button only disabling it in the Notes client instance but leaving it enabled in an open Designer instance

    When you click the Continue button or another, debugger it jerks, which affects the eyes.

    As you can see, it has so many errors that it is better to write a new one or take someone ready, than to correct.

    For the debugger showing the wrong line, I have found this happens where the source code has lines separated by colons, or ending in a colon. (The colon is an old construct permitting more than one statement per line)

    Can I add, use \t and \n to show tabs and newlines in variable values, instead of just having them mess up the display?
