In modern Integrated Development Environments (IDEs) like the PyDev plugin in Eclipse or another IDE such as NetBeans, we can set debug watches to monitor the state of our GUI during the execution of our code.
This is very similar to the Microsoft IDEs of Visual Studio and the more recent versions of Visual Studio.NET.
Setting debug watches is a very convenient way to help our development efforts.
In this recipe, we will reuse the Python GUI we developed in earlier recipes. We are stepping through the code we previously developed and setting debug watches.
While this recipe applies to the PyDev plugin in the Java-based Eclipse IDE, its principles also apply to many modern IDEs.
