New debugger views - dragging variables from "Variables" to "Watches"

Now, when Selena provides a dashboard-like debugger views where all frames are visible at once (very comfortable! thanks a lot) - how about an option for drag-n-drop of variables from "Variables" to "Watches" ?

Also, right clicking the variable (class field, actually) in "Variables" frame gives no option to add it to Watches - http://img152.imageshack.us/img152/1239/69847101uj9.png
Is it possible to add this option ?

Thank you !

Will do.

BTW, did you try to drag, say, the console view?

I noticed that any mouse click on its header expands it to fill the
toolwindow, hiding the other views - is that what you're getting at?
That's nice. I'm not yet sure if I like it that the tabs are removed
though. My initial reaction was "Ugh!" as I had to lose half my
vertical screen space to make the toolwindow tall enough for it to be
useful. Time will tell...

What happened to the "Suspend all threads while stepping" button?

Try dragging, not just clicking :)

Try as I might, dragging seems to do nothing... possibly because the
clicked section seems to maximise on the initial mouse down rather than
wait for a mouse click? I've tried clicking and dragging all over the
headers, nothing doing :(

Am I missing something?

Doesn't appear to do anything in #6733 either. Should it?

Sorry for the confusion. The debugger layout is not completely done yet. Will be in place very soon.

Kirill, how about being able to show/hide any debugger panel and not just "Watches" (which can be hidden by pressing "Hide Watches" button on the "Variables" panel) ? If, say, there were show/hide buttons (probably, somewhere on the "Variables" panel since it's located very comfortably in the middle and is always visible, unlike area below the "Close" and "Help" buttons) for all 4 panels (Frames, Variables, Watches and Console) and IDEA was also remembering what panel was shown or hidden last time - then it would be very accessible to quickly hide unused panels (right now, for example - I don't need "Frames" and "Console" and they just take a valuable space)

Btw, those new tabs in debugger view start reminding me of Eclipse :) Brrrr ...

This is already done and you will see that in the next EAP.

Cool :) Does IDEA remember one's choices ? I mean, if you hide some debug panel once - will it always be hidden from now on until I decide to show it again ?
