Debug Variable Hover


#1

When I am trying to debug and place my mouse over a variable, I should be able
to see the value of that variable. Sometimes it works and sometimes it
doesn’t. This is very frustrating. Anyone have any info as to why this
works sometimes and not other times?

Thanks!

I’ve had this happen to me.

What usually works is actually clicking in the editor panel itself, and then
trying the hover. It seems that sometimes Toad doesn’t recognize the mouse
when the editor panel isn’t in focus. For example if you’ve clicked
somewhere else, like in a data grid, and then do the mouse hover, it won’t
work until you click in the editor again.

I haven’t been able to reproduce this 100%, so it might not be accurate,
but it generally works for me.

In addition, it could be that Oracle simply isn’t returning a value. For all
variables, Toad has to ask Oracle what the value is. In many cases, Oracle
simply does not return a value. This is especially true for complex variable
types.
