It should be possible to have the debug log activated for a particular widget without the IDE running. The IDE is only really needed at graphic design time. The rest of the time it would be sufficient to have the widget running in combination with a debug log and the code editor of your own choice. I find the Xwidget IDE a deeply frustrating place to be due to all the bugs and problems with the editor interface (font size, search, artefacts, edit unaware).

If the debug statements were simply written to a log file then we could look at that log file, fix the issue in a code editor and then press F5 to refresh the widget. There is no need for the IDE at all when design time is complete.

Is there a switch to get Xwidgets to write debug statements to a log file? If not then there should be as it would be very, very useful.

Even better would be the current debug window completely detached from the IDE.

The following image is the yahoo widgets debugger showing any current errors/debug statements. No IDE present - just the debugger. The editor is my own personal editor in which I am very productive. The widget I am currently working on is easily restarted with an F5 each time I make a code change. I'd like to work with xwidget code in the same manner.

I have to emphasise that I truly dislike the Xwidget IDE. It is very good for designing graphically but it is VERY bad for coding. The worst thing is - ALL of it.

I use the context editor as my IDE, I have the widget running and can restart it with an F5. a debug log would be ideal and I could avoid using the Xwidget IDE 90% of the time.
