Take Command 12.0 introduced many new features in the batch debugger (BDEBUGGER). Last time we talked about conditional breakpoints; this time we’ll showcase tooltips.
A tooltip is a little window that pops up next to the mouse cursor when you pause (“hover”) the mouse over a word in the tabbed editing windows. The batch debugger supports four types of tooltips:
If you hover the mouse over a variable name, the debugger will display a tooltip with the current value. The variable can be an environment variable or a TCC internal variable. (You cannot display a variable function value in a tooltip, as they are not evaluated until the line is parsed.)
If you hover the mouse over an array variable (1-dimensional only!), the debugger will display a tooltip with the values of up to the first 20 elements of the array.
If you hover the mouse over an internal TCC command, the debugger will display a tooltip with the command syntax.
If you hover the mouse over an alias, the debugger will display the alias definition.
The batch debugger will display tooltips both when editing a batch file and when debugging it.
