16.1 Inspecting the current object

It is sometimes more natural to invoke an Inspector on some object you are analysing. You can do this in several ways, including using the Inspect menu command.

  1. To create an example object, in the Listener, evaluate:
  2. (make-instance 'capi:list-panel :items '(1 2 3 4))
  3. Choose Values > Inspect from the Listener's menu bar to see the Inspector tool window illustrated in Inspector.

Note that you have not displayed the list-panel on screen yet. You will do that in a few minutes.

Another way to inspect the current object (that is, the value of cl:* ) in the Listener is the keystroke Ctrl+C Ctrl+I .

A general way to inspect the current object in most of the LispWorks tools is to click the button.
