How to view the value of a constant

I'm using constants built up from other constants. How can I see the actual value of the constant. Did a RTFM here and found this post. Atm it was not possible. Using IntelliJ 12.1.4 Ultimate. In eclipse this works and is extremely useful. I hope its also possible in IntelliJ.

Hi Jan,

There is no such a facility at IJ at the moment, sorry

Hi Denis,

Thanks for your answer. Are there perhaps plans to add this feature in IntelliJ 13.
Imho IntelliJ offers me far more then Eclipse but this feature is implemented in Eclipse and I really miss it.

We don't have such plans so far

Right way to go is to create corresponding feature request at IJ tracker and, if/when it gets user attention (number of watches/votes), it might be considered to be implemented.

Hi Denis,

Will do that.
Imho this is a basic feature which is used by many other devs. Turns out its not. Aside from this small issue IntelliJ is a joy so far.
