[Flex] Why can I see private variables in the debugger?

Hi,

Is there a way I can change the debugger variable viewer so that it only shows public variables or perhaps privates and constants in a different colour?


Cheers,
Nick

Why are private vars of less interest than public ones? ;)
I don't see a need in dedicated setting for this. Luckily IDEA 11 will have better icons for fields in Debugger view, so you'll be able to detect field visibility looking at its icon.

Because it's super usefull (in Flash Builder) to see at a glance when debugging what is Public and Private. I often code and debug at the same whilst navigating the Class Structures in the debugger for reference.

Thanks,
Nick

That changes the result to:

FlashBuilder 1 --- IntelliJ 1354354867321

IntelliJ still winning.
