Something terrible has happened when I tried to see variable content

  • alt text

    Please, help me see content of this variable.

    Windows 7 -> Ubuntu 16.04 via VMware

    Qt 5.8.0 (x86_64-little_endian-lp64 shared (dynamic) release build; by GCC 5.3.1 20160406 (Red Hat 5.3.1-6)) on "xcb"
    OS: Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS [linux version 4.8.0-36-generic]

    right hand side on the Debug-Screen you'll find the variable there too, listed with all others.
    If its a local variables its right there, if its a variabke of the class, you'll have to expand this in the list.

  • Okay, that'll work for now. But is there any way I can use this amazing handy feature without a rectangle that is blocking half of it's window?

    I don't really know what is causing this.
    I have sometimes issues when I change my Screen resolution (Dockingstation -> Laptop and back)

    This sometimes results in odd graphic-glitches and the wrong font-size. Usually changing Qt from fullscreen to windowed and back again fixes that for me.

    Hvae you tried that, and/or turning everything off and on again?

    An other question has it actually worked before, and what changed since then!?

  • I tried turning QT off and on. Seems like nothing has changed. Yet while I was doing it I found another bug, seems when variable name is large enough there is no rectangle overlay, but it gets better, now QT show this hint window only once per debug session and then it's gone for good.

    About timeline of this bug: I installed Ubuntu about half of hour ago from original .ISO file and tried to do as less as possible so nothing gets messed up...
