RE: Scrolling through debug source



fixed




Ewout,

That is correct, the fix was made in the latest update of the product, as
pointed out in the Michael's note below.
As for Michael's comment, there are a couple of points here to consider:
   You do not see the source moving when you are using scroll bar, but you
   see the current line number updated at the bottom of the editor view. In
   addition to solving the previously described problem it has an advantage
   of making scrolling very fast - of course, we don't have to continuously
   retrieve the source.
   If you use 'PageDown' key, then you will see the source update as you
   page down.

The question is whether we really want to show the source as you scroll
down with the scroll bar, which can make things fairly slow.
I guess I would like to hear a few more opinions on this issue and would
certainly welcome any sort of discussion related to it.

Thanks,

Ewout,

This used to happen to me all the time.  It was fixed in the latest update,
I am on 5.1.0.2 build 20040127_1200.  It does not jump around anymore, but
the source no longer moves when using the scroll bar, you can position the
cursor but you won't see source move while you are using the scroll bar.  I
hope they fix this soon.  If you need to see the source move while you are
scrolling use the up and down arrows on the keyboard, it's inconvenient but
better than jumping all over the code.

Subject: [WDSCI-L] Scrolling through debug source


In the debug perspective, when I am scrolling through the source of the
program being debugged (in the window with the little bug in the tab
title), the cursor sometimes jumps back and forth between totally
unrelated parts of the source. After some clicks in the scroll bar, the
source is suddenly positioned at the end of the source. When I then want
to scroll upwards, the source is repositioned almost at the beginning of
the source. Because of this, it is difficult to find a specific source
line. Does anyone recognize this strange behaviour, and does anyone know
how it can be solved?

I am using version 5.1 build 20030908_2154. As far as I know, I have
installed all updates.

Ewout
