Is it possible to have a custom debugger evaluation tool that is more than just a String?


Say I have an object that represents a shape and for ease of debugging, I want a custom renderer in the debugger tool so that I can evaluate the shape and actually see what it looks like (perhaps rendered in some sort of GUI panel). 

Is this possible within IntelliJ?

You can implement your custom rendered using debugger.nodeRenderer extension point.

It's associated with NodeRenderer interface.
