Variables
The
Variables
view displays an expandable tree structure of local variables associated with the stack frame selected in the
Debug
view. Alternatively, you can display the value of a particular local variable by hovering over its instance in code. You can see details on a selected variable on the bottom of the
Variables
view.
NOTE
: If the debugger cannot display the value of a particular variable and sets it to
N\A
, refer to the corresponding case described in the Troubleshooting section.
During a debug session, you can change values of variables to check how they are handled or to go through a loop faster. To do it, right-click a variable, select
Change Value
, and type in a new value.
To disable a variable and prevent the debugger from reading it, right-click a variable and select
Disable
. It might be useful if a target is very sensitive.
