Does Reveal able to show the views that dynamically created and added into the view hierarchy? I try to debug a view which was dynamically created when user tapped a button, but I can't see it in Reveal inspective view.

    Hi again Jain,

    Yes, Reveal supports such use cases, though not in an automatic way: if you inspect your app, and then its view hierarchy changes, you need to refresh it by selecting ViewRefresh menu item, or clicking the refresh button in the connection bar, or simply pressing ⌘R. This will reload your view hierarchy in its current state. Reveal will also refresh the view hierarchy if you modify some view's property from Inspectors. However, Reveal doesn't track and automatically refresh changes in the view hierarchy at the moment.

    I hope this answers your question!

    Best regards,

    Hi Vlas,

    Thanks very much. Does Reveal provide a complete documentation at somewhere? I spend whole day to fumble Reveal and try to understand the meanings underneath functions and commands. I think it would be helpful if I can find official documentation.

    Hi Jain,

    We don't have a comprehensive user's guide at the moment, but you might find these materials useful:

    Providing an official guide or a video is something that was on our minds for some time now, though we never got around to actually do that. Aside from the Refresh function, can you elaborate which features you found hard to find or understand? We strive to make Reveal's user interface intuitive enough not to require detailed documentation, but I understand that it doesn't always work that way. Thanks for your feedback!

    Best regards,
