    No variables or expressions in debug

    wkolcz Level 1
      System set up:
      WinXP Pro, Eclispe 3.2, Flex 3 plugin, IE 6.

      I read a lot about how FF3 kills the debugging of Flex apps, but I moved my preference browser to IE to test it. I set a breakpoint on my code at where a variable is declared (Following Lynda.com example) and theirs shows the variable in the debug perspective, but mine doesn't (yes, I am clicking the debug button). Any ideas?

      I get information in the debug tab, but nothing in the variables area. I see the breakpoint in the breakpoints section, and nothing in expressions (which I imagine I wouldn't for now).

          Did you click the little plus next to "this" ?

            Never got a 'this'

            I am only getting this in the Debug tab (pardon my drawing):

            DebuggingDemo[Flex Application]
            [-] file:/C:/FlexProjects/chapter09Begin/bin-debug/DebuggingDemo.html
            Main Thread(Running)

            file:/C:/FlexProjects/chapter09Begin/bin-debug/DebuggingDemo.html

            Nothing shows up in the Variables, Expressions, and only the breakpoint shows up DebuggingDemo.mxml [line:9] shows up in the Breakpoints tab.

              The only time you will see anything in the variables window is if the file
              is running in debug mode and is currently stopped at an error pr break
              point.

                  Can you post a screenshot of what you are seeing?
