PHPStorm debugging '(Click to see the full value)' does nothing.

I set breakpoints an successfully break using the IDE but I often want to display a string that is long and either in the 'Variables' window or 'Evaluate Expression' the displayed value of the string is truncated with a message at the end '...(Click to see the full value)'. When I click on this area nothing happens. How can I display the whole string?

Thank you.

Hi there,

What PhpStorm version do you use (exact build number please)?

http://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/WI-18192 -- it was fixed in latest EAP build (v7.0.1 PS-131.487)

I am using Build #PS-131.374, built on October 21, 2013.

When I click on 'Check for updates' I get the message 'You already have the latest version of PhpStorm installed.'

Absolutely correct! By default you are subscribed to *stable* releases channel (and PS-131.374 is v7.0.0) -- the one I've mentioned above is EAP (Early Access Programm to public dev builds).

You can change preferred channel for updates in your Settings.

In any case: http://confluence.jetbrains.com/display/PhpStorm/PhpStorm+Early+Access+Program

Thank you. Now I can see more but I don't think it is fixed yet. In the pop-up that appears when clicking '(Click to see the full value)' has a scrolbar on the bottom to see lines that are longer than the popup-window width but there isn't a scrollbar on the right to see values that might extend beyond the height of the popup. I can increase the popup height but that of course is limited to the size of the screen. There doesn't seem to be a workaround as I cannot put a cursor in the popup to use the up/down arrows to see what is beyond the bottom.

Thanks again.

The server is temporary overloaded, please try again later.


Should I try again later? Am i supposed to add this as an issue?

Thanks again.

Yes, please try again -- it worked OK for me just few seconds ago (although it is a bit slow today)

Well .. you could post your comments (observations) and screenshot of how it looks for you in original issue  (http://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/WI-18192 ) .. or go straight into new ticket (e.g. "WI-18192 is fixed .. but still not 100% / want a better result").

As always: the better the description (illustrations/video are always welcome) the easier for dev to understand what is wrong and what needs to be done -- which often ends up in faster fixing.
