The App Inspector

The App Inspector is your best friend during development as it provides a complete overview of your App.

It is organized into Tabs. Each Tab is relevant to a particular workspace. You can double click a Tab to detach it into its own floating window.

Clicking the small icon on the far right of the App Inspector title bar will detach it into its own floating window.

Double clicking the window title bar when it is floating will attach it back into place.

The Console Tab

The Console Tab contains an embedded console for all supported scripting languages.

Detach the tab if you want to use it in Desktop App View runtime mode to assist with debugging.

Pro Tip

While developing an App, if any error messages are written to the output panel
in the docked Console tab, the tab text will blink red/black until you select
the tab to look at the messages then clear them by clicking the trashcan or
entering the clear Lianja/VFP command.
