Special object views

In the most views such as sequence and structure diagrams objects are represented by their class and unique id. For a few objects this information is insufficient. Think about string, array, thread or thread group objects. In the most cases you want to see the characters of a string object or the elements of an array object rather than their unique id's. So we introduce special object views that adress the special meaning of such objects. From that point of view the thread overview is a special object view for thread and thread group objects.

Text view

The text view displays the characters of a string object. Simple drag a string object from any view and drop it into the text view. So you will immediately see the characters represented by the string object.

See at the next screenshot. The value of the hashtable entry is truncated within the structure diagram. So the string object was moved by drag'n'drop to the text view below.
