Discovery Of The Day/ Variables View

In my quest to rediscover the most basic of functionality in Xcode that has been sitting in front of my face for the last couple years, I have discovered the value of the Variables view.

What is that you ask? Oh, that’s the white panel that I am always in a hurry to shove out of my way so that I can get to the lldb command line in the console view in order to po object.value. Let me show you what the Variables view does:

Yes, you are correct, it shows the value of every variable that is currently within scope.

Too bad Apple hid it so well. Maybe they should do something about that in their documentation. 😉
