Spy-js Capture Exclusions Dialog

The dialog box opens when you click the Capture Events button Capture Events toolbar button in the Events pane of the Spy-js tool window. In this dialog box, define custom filters to configure the range of events displayed and traced in the tool window. See Spy-js for details.

The dialog box consists of two panes. The left-hand, Exclusions, pane shows a list of already existing user-defined event filters. The right-hand, Exclusion, pane shows the details of the filter selected in the Exclusions pane.
