11 The Inspector

11.1 Examining objects

The Main area is the most interesting part of the inspector. Each item in this list describes a component of the inspected object by displaying its name (the first field in each entry) and its printed representation (the second field). For example, the inspection of a CLOS object yields a list of its slots and their values. The description is called an inspection.

1. Type the following Common Lisp form into a listener:

(make-instance 'capi:display-pane :text "My Display Pane")

2. Choose Values > Inspect in the listener.

The object you created is inspected in the inspector.
