Expressions View is used to inspect the data. Expressions View opens automatically when an item is added to the view. Entries in Expressions View can be selected to provide more detailed information that will be displayed in Detail Pane. When debugging a Magik program, data that contain variables can be expanded to show their fields and variables.
By default Expressions View is visible in Debug Perspective. To add this view to the current perspective, click Window > Show View > Other... > Debug > Expressions.
