Variables not available in debugger

Wed Jun 13, 2018 6:18 pm

The problem is pretty simple. Simple variables or parameters are available until you step over a more complex line of code, they then become unavailable in the context or watch panes. Depending on the code they sometimes reappear sometimes not. Makes the debugger virtually useless sometimes. Having to resort to the old printline type debugging of decades ago.

You guys blamed saxon at the time.

I have saxon optimizations turned off in debugger settings.

I posted this problem years ago. I think it was supposed to be fixed in version 14.1. Yesterday I was debugging a section of xslt in version 19 and hit the problem. Installed version 20, problem still there.

Is there a fix?

Hi Scott,

From what you're describing the issue seems to be triggered in a specific context. We need to reproduce this first, before we can establish what it is (an old issue, a Saxon issue, or something else).
If you can reproduce it consistently, please provide a set of sample files, so we can investigate.
You can send the files either directly to or use the Technical Support form.
