Tip: How to find stuff in the Studio

A great tool for finding where something on the screen corresponds to its location in the Studio is the 'UI Components' inspector.

Go to Debug->UI Components

Then that'll show you a tree of the memory model of the user interface on screen. And if you just follow the yellow box and keep navigating down the hierarchy; you'll always be able to find the component you're looking for. Then just right-click on it and you can then select to highlight the widget in the main Studio view (and if it's been themed you can select to highlight the themed source so you don't need to hunt for what's overriding how its being displayed)

(one thing to note is that it doesn't do the yellow highlight box for shape widgets; so those can be trickier to find on some occassions; but you'll at least be able to narrow it down significantly)

This is exactly what I do when I'm faced with the question of 'Where in the Studio is this thing I'm seeing on the screen?'

Hope that helps.
