Summary0000632: Option to remove "Container" type in Arrays

Would it be possible to add a config option that would remove the "Container" type in the Variable window for arrays?

When dealing with nested arrays, it makes it a bit more intuitive for someone like myself to read without it there. We already have the length in the array value.

Example w/o Container:

Name | Type | Value

$node1 | array | Array[2]
$node2 | array | Array[1]
$node4 | string | "good bye"
$node3 | string | "hello"

I don't know if I'm missing something about the Container but thought I'd ask.

I've no idea what you're talking about here? Which variable view do you mean? Xdebug doesn't provide anything like this... perhaps some IDE does. Do you mean a variable pane in some IDE?

Sorry, here's a screenshot:

Maybe this is a PDT thing... I don't know. Basically, I want that container row I circled to go away.

Yes, that's a PDT thing. I find it annoying too, but it's not something that Xdebug does. You'll have to ask the PDT folks about this; sorry!
