Inspecting model properites with Xdebug in Netbeans

I can’t see model properties when I inspect them with xdebug (using netbeans).

I believe this is because they are set by overriding the __set method.

How can I inspect my model properties - without going through every model and explicitly declaring them.

unfortunately xdebug wont do this automatically but you can setup a watch and see the value.

Say you you have a CActiveRecord in the variable $model and it has a column named $user_id you would just set a watch to $model->user_id.

There are a few feature requests asking for better support but this is the best you can do right now.

Thanks Luke. At least setting a watch does not involve editing the code to inspect them.
