Customizing Embedded Statistics

Performance Validator provides a syntax coloured source code viewing pane to allow the source code associated with a given statistic to be viewed. Most of these source code viewing panes provide the option to include embedded statistics. An example image is shown below:

The red statistics indicate the number of visits, the blue statistics indicate the amount of time.

Depending on your needs and the application under test, you may or may not want these statistics displayed. Additionally you may want the statistics displayed according to your own preferences, more or less columns, use of separators and different colours.
