Is there some form of immediate window (like the one in VB6) where a programmer can test simple code snippets?
Not sure I understand your answer, Emile - what I'm looking for is something that does what the VB version does:
While I'm debugging my main app I would have a second window available that lets me do things like testing code using the current properties from the main module i.e. for a chess program I might want to know what is currently on square 44 so I might type
where the immediate window knows about the properties and constants in the main window
So I could also type
and the immediate window would understand that K4 is actually 44
That just scratches the surface; i frequently used it to check parentheses in complex expressions by setting a breakpoint and printing current values of expressions like '
etc. If implemented I'm sure other uses could be implemented
