- Subject: MI, FrameDecorator.frame_args () and variable objects
I bumped into another issue. I have custom frame decorator
that adds "synthetic" arguments in the same sense as described
in documentation .
It works fine, the problem is how to get a variable object for
such a "synthethic" argument to inspect "contents" of this
argument. For example, assume the argument is a pointer to
a structure and I need to check the contents of it.
Is there a way to get such a variable object? Or any other way
to achieve effectively the same thing?
Looking at the code of mi_cmd_var_create() it seems to me that
this is currently impossible but I might be missing something.
