A little something we’re prototyping

Here’s a quick preview of something Clive is busily prototyping:

Translating values on hover

Translating values on hover

It’s an idea we’ve had for a while – JavaScript in the Reflector code view pane theoretically lets us offer some extra analysis information on the fly. Over the next week or so, we’re taking some time out to see how feasible it is to build this into the desktop tool, and look at what we could add.

Toggling values in and out of hex for easier comprehension was a small but frequent request in user tests, and it felt like a nice place to start. So here it is on hover – we’ll keep you posted on how we get on.

There’s some other stuff we’re considering, too: something to highlight data flow, maybe, or make it easier to see variables move through decompiled code. But this was a good, simple place to start.

Let us know if there’s anything you’d like to see.
