Description mieszcz 2011-12-03 10:59:03 UTC
As in example:

Type configDataElement
'The types will be defined As: String, Element
	elementName	As	String
	elementString	As	String
End Type

sub main
dim a As configDataElement
a.elementName = "xdafsdsf"
a.elementString = "something else"
End sub

Now start program debugging.
And add variable a into watch.
In the watch you can see only the child called elementName, and nothing else.
It is wrong. For simple type it is not so annoying, but when user define more complicated type (even with trees), then it is very annoying if you cannot see
what is stored in the variables.

The bug still persists in beta

Reproduced in 3.3.4 and 3.5.2 on Fedora 64 bit
When we watch variable "a" in watching window, then we see arrow to left of it. But when we click this arrow to unfold object variable, nothing happens.

In my opinion the bug can be closed.
