Finding root of a parameter

Frequently I find myself trying to backtrace through why a parameter inside a method has the value it has at that moment during debugging. For this I go through multiple caller methods and finally end up in where the initial parameter was really defined after 3-4 levels of stack trace in the declaration of the parameter- this could be a field of another class or simply an initialized variable a few stack traces above. 

Normally it should take some special keyboard shortcut and ozcode should magically take me there this way my debugging will be easier. 

We are working on a feature called "Go To Execution" in OzCode v4 which will allow you to track parameter's values and data flow much more quickly. We will begin blogging about these new features soon.
