RN Debugger - Tip on App Reload

All - I’ve found the RN debugger to be really useful, but it has a behavior when you reload the app in a simulator that can be frustrating.

Let’s say you’ve selected a component in the left-side navigation window, and you’re watching state. When you reload the app, the debugger creates another entry as shown here for the HomeScreen component:
RN duplicate comp display

If you don’t manually select the new entry, the debugger will still be on the original, and will be showing the state for that entry. You might start making code changes or testing something, and you won’t be looking at the correct information. (I did that a few times before I figured out what was happening.)

I hope this is helpful. Happy coding!
