When your recording is loaded, the RevDeBug Control Panel window will look similarly:
This window displays detailed information about all recorded states of your application. It also allows you to navigate through them.
Arrows at very top of this panel allow you to move back and forth through each recorded state:
The biggest ones show you every single state of your application (step-into). Arrows in the middle allow you to move through your code without entering methods (step-over). Last ones can be used to leave the method you have entered (step-out).
For faster navigation, use this slider:. Moving the red marker will transfer you to different place in your code.
Whereas blue arrows stick to the current thread, following it’s states. Red ones below the slider allow you to jump between all other threads, just how it was done during execution of your program.
While you navigate through states, corresponding source code is displayed.
Beneath the navigation area with arrows, you can see details about the current state you are in.
By default, only basic data is visible:
Clicking on this icon will show you more detailed information about your state.
You can jump to any call, by double clicking any position in Call Stack and Scope Stack. Scope Stack provides fine grained navigation within the current method and makes it easier to iterate over loops and conditionals.
