Use the extension builder to test the widget. I keep a text editor open 
to edit the code and press the test button after editing. No need to 
relaunch either the builder or the IDE. Debugging is minimal.

I've found very little documentaion on LCB, and much of what I've found 
is either out of date or partial or wrong.
