Viewing complete strings while debugging in Eclipse

February 14, 2017

While debugging Java code, Strings in the views “Variables” and “Expressions” show up only till a certain length, after which Eclipse shows “…”. Even after working with eclipse for 10 years it was a new info for me. There is a way to show the complete string.

In the Variables view you can right click on Details pane (the section where the string content is displayed) and select “Max Length…” popup menu. The same length applies to expression inspector popup and few other places. In the max length give 0 and you will see the whole values in the value box.


Thats it guys, enjoy coding.
