Customize the Debug View

Don't know if this is requested or ever noticed by someone,
but in the Debug console in the Frame Tab, if i expand the this
entry i saw all fields of this object instance. this can be a nice
info about the current object, but for me it will be better if i can
customize it, so it only shows declared fields or all fields. for
example, if you debug a object which extends JFrame, you will
get a bunch of fields, that are of no interest to you, so you have
to scroll, the whole way down to the field of interest to see it's value.
maybe there is a solution, but i don't found it in the customize
view panel. maybe this request solves the slow problem of the
debugger.

Good idea. I'm sure there's an existing SCR for this, but if not,
you've got my vote.

I submitted an enhancement request for something like this a while ago (http://www.intellij.net/tracker/idea/viewSCR?publicId=12427 ). Feel free to vote for it.
