How do I debug a PropertyEditor or Customizer?

Scott Stanchfield

Property editors and customizers are run in a VisualAge for Java "system thread". Normally, VisualAge does not show you output to the console or debugger for these threads.

You can change this by setting an option under Window->Options. Simply check the "Show System Programs in Debugger and Console" under the Coding->Debugging options.

Anything run in a system thread (like property editors) won't show up in the console or debugger unless you do this...
