evaluate method

Future<Response> evaluate(
  1. String isolateId,
  2. String targetId,
  3. String expression,
  4. {Map<String, String>? scope,
  5. bool? disableBreakpoints}

The evaluate RPC is used to evaluate an expression in the context of some target.

targetId may refer to a Library, Class, or Instance.

If targetId is a temporary id which has expired, then the Expired Sentinel is returned.

If targetId refers to an object which has been collected by the VM's garbage collector, then the Collected Sentinel is returned.

If isolateId refers to an isolate which has exited, then the Collected Sentinel is returned.

If scope is provided, it should be a map from identifiers to object ids. These bindings will be added to the scope in which the expression is evaluated, which is a child scope of the class or library for instance/class or library targets respectively. This means bindings provided in scope may shadow instance members, class members and top-level members.

If disableBreakpoints is provided and set to true, any breakpoints hit as a result of this evaluation are ignored. Defaults to false if not provided.

If the expression fails to parse and compile, then RPCError 113 "Expression compilation error" is returned.

If an error occurs while evaluating the expression, an ErrorRef reference will be returned.

If the expression is evaluated successfully, an InstanceRef reference will be returned.

The return value can be one of InstanceRef or ErrorRef.

This method will throw a SentinelException in the case a Sentinel is returned.
