    Hi I've just installed a trial version of The Welkin Suite and I've been having a look at the debugging functionality for unit tests. I've just raised a couple of other issues regarding issues I've come across in the "Locals" window and unit tests involving exceptions. One other thing I've noticed is the "Add watch" functionality doesn't seem to work. I right click over a variable in the code and the Watch window gets either the "this" reference added or the first static class variable declared in the particular class the call stack is currently executing. When explicitly typing in a variable value into a new row in the Watch window table the same thing happens in that the variable that gets entered is either "this" or the first static variable declared in the class.

      Hi Donnie,


      Thank you for your post.


      Currently, the 'Add watch' functionality is not yet implemented properly.

      We will remove this command while our developers will work on this feature for future versions of The Welkin Suite IDE.

        Hi Kate,

        Thanks for getting back to me with an update on this. Would you be able to say roughly how often on average a new version of The Welkin Suite gets released and do you have a rough idea when the under development "Add watch" functionality will be incorporated in a release or is it too early to say?


        Regards,

        Donnie

          Hi Donnie,


          Thank you for your response and for the questions.

          We release new versions of The Welkin Suite IDE for both Windows and Mac OS each 2-3 weeks usually.


          As for implementing the 'Add Watch' functionality, we haven't yet prioritized this in our development plans. 

          I believe that this will be done as a part of implementing the support for Salesforce Debugger. They promise (safe harbor) to provide us with the API for this late winter. 

          However, there is the option that we might complete earlier.


          I will keep you updated on this.

          Regards,

          Kate
