I want to know how to find the runtime type of a variable in the Variables view. There is an "Actual Type" column in this view, which looks like it should give the right information, but it is always empty. The C++ runtime has the runtime type info available, so carbide should be able to work this out too.
For example, I am trying to debug the following line deep in the heart of the Symbian active scheduler: TRAP(aError, active->RunL());
active is derived from CActive and its RunL() has thrown a non-Symbian exception. I need to find the actual type of active so that I can know which active object is doing this.
For reference, I am working with a recent Nokia internal carbide build, debugging on the winscw emulator.
