Loggin (DEBUG_ENABLED) and display

I just set DEBUG_ENABLED to true in order to track down a problem described in my last post.

Regardless of the tab I select at the top of the window that opens, the sent and received packages are seperated in different panels. Because of this, I cannot see which packet followed which.

I don’'t know yet what “interpreted” means, but at least sent and received should be displayed in the same panel if I select the “all” tab.

Andreas,

I’'m developing a new enhanced debug window. I observed the same issue that you said and was planning to solve it in some other way.

I was thinking to print a timestamp before each sent and received packet (similar to a log). What do you think about this solution?

Gato,

Another option would be the style that Exodus uses where it writes all content in order to one pane, and looks something like:

SENT:

RECV: <iq from=’‘jivematt@jabber.org/Exodus’’ id=’‘jcl_15’’ type=’‘result’’><query xmlns=’‘jabber:iq:roster’’>

using different colors for each type.

Another option would be to show each packet in a list. So, it could be something like:

Then you’'d click each packet and see the details in another pane below. This could be a pretty cool UI, although it would be more work. It could be something sort of like the Winfessor Wtrace (although different info):

To be honest, I can’'t think of any use in keeping the messages separate in two different panels.

I would show the messages sorted by time as you would expect it in a file based log. If anyone wants to filter by incoming or sent packets, he can still use the tabs.
