XML Developer: skip function when stepping

Post by jbriner »

I have many functions in my XSL, it would be helpful if I did not have to step through them most of the time. Would it be possible to mark a function as skip over automatically. If I know a function works, I am most interested in how the result changes the flow through the Stack not how the function operates.

Hello!

The ability to automatically skip over functions that I know exactly work well would be useful, indeed.
I'm not quite sure that our current development plans include improvements to the debugger, but your proposal is pretty interesting, so I will add your suggestion to our internal task tracker to be considered in the near future.

Best regards,
Teo

Perhaps an even simpler step command would be step to next matching template. Having to go through a bunch (and I mean a mega-bunch) of functions to figure out which template will get fired would be amazingly helpful to me.

Hello Jack,

I added your last comment to the task related to your request, created a few months ago, when you started this thread.
So far, our current roadmap has not included XSLT Debugger improvements. Maybe in our next major release.
I will update this thread to keep you informed.

Regards,
Teo
