She never officially tested the Object Browser but rather played back-up tester in case someone went on vacation, needed help analyzing failures during a full test pass, and so forth. When she wrote most of these tips, she had to browse the test cases and the documentation to make sure she described things consistently and to make sure she was not missing any functionality.

This tip is about the Show Hidden Types And Members option on the Object Browser Settings menu.


When this option is enabled, any hidden types and members will appear, but they’ll appear in a grayed-out state, as shown next in the Method1() and Method2() example, where Method2() is hidden.


Happy Programming! =)
