[wingide-users] __repr__, print self and debug probe

Hi all,

I have a class featuring a method __repr__ and a method like

def show_scatterers(self):
  # print some attributes of the class
  return self

The purpose of the return statement is to allow chaining of such operations: xs.show_summary().show_scatterers()

The problem happens when I execute xs.show_scatterers() in the debug probe: not only the printing internal to that method occurs but Wing does also display the representation of that object xs because the former call return the latter object.

Is there a trick I am missing that would prevent Wing from displaying repr(xs) here? I tried Preferences > Debugger > Data filters to no avail...
