Method tab to execute custom methods

The method tab is awesome, but there's no documentation.

Will I ever be able to invoke my own methods on the selected object (or even some other object)?  That would be extremely useful!

Yeah, the documentation needs to be updated. You should be able to invoke your own methods on the selected object. However, note that currently, the methods have to be public (going back, I should have added support for non-public methods as well, but I guess it's not too late to do that). As of now, you can invoke your own public methods on the selected object and the data context.

You can also invoke a public method on a public property of the selected object by clicking "Change Target", and then delving into the property whose method you want to invoke (and to call a method on a property of the data context you would simply delve into the data context, and then delve deeper into its properties). 

Bringing up concerns or issues like this is always appreciated.

Just tested using Change Target and it's exactly what I need.  Awesome job guys!

The UI on the Change Target screen is a bit dodgy but it works OK.

Thanks again!
