How can I dock the Evaluate Expression window in the debugger?

One of the things that's stopping some of my team moving to RubyMine from vim/pry is the modal nature of the Evaluate Expression window.

Is there any way to dock this in the debugger so it's always available?

Thanks!

Hi,

there is no such functionality.  Feel free to vote for http://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/RUBY-14426
Also we have implemented something like irb console inside debugger (this will be available in our next RubyMine 7.0 EAP.

Regards, Oleg.

Thanks Oleg.

Is the irb console going to be available when you've hit a breakpoint? ie is it going to allow us to interact with the running application?

When is RubyMine 7 going to be released? :)

Hi,

yes, irb (or something similar) will be available when app is stopped at a breakpoint.
For more information about features and plans I'd suggest to check our roadmap (http://confluence.jetbrains.com/display/RUBYDEV/Development+Roadmap#DevelopmentRoadmap-RubyMine7.0Tsubaki%28October%2C2014%29)
