Show Variables Tab when Debugging

Hi all,

I've been searching the web and these forums for a while and I can't seem to find what I'm looking for. I've also looked at the Intellij help but no luck.

I accidentally closed the variables tab when debugging something and now I can't find how to show the variables tab again. Any ideas?

When the Variables tab is hidden there should be a small icon in the upper-right corner of the Debug window, rectangular in shape, yellow in color with two horizontal lines dividing it into three sections, the top-most of which is larger than the lower two. Click this icon and the Variables tab will be restored.

Hi Randall, thanks for your reply.


I've looked for such a button on the debug tool window, but I can't seem to find it. I've attached a screenshot to show you what I'm seeing.


Cheers

Scrap that, I managed to show variables again by clicking 'Restore layout' in the menu provided when you click the layout button on the left of the debug tool window.

Thanks again.

Perhaps you detached the Variables tab rather than hiding it? In that case, the icon for restoring it is not displayed.

Nonetheless, if you've succeeded in restoring the view, that's what counts.
