Variables Window button

A Variables window is opened by selecting the 'Variables' command from the 'View' menu or by clicking the Variables window button on 'View toolbar'.

The 'Variables' window is an automated watch window. All expressions shown are configured automatically. In general, you will be using watch window for global symbols or expressions and variables window for local symbols, which change quickly, as you step in and out of functions.

The variable Window has two panes, each showing its specific variables.

All shown variables are configured automatically and can not be changed manually.

Note: Variables window only show valid contents when the CPU is stopped, the variables shown, and their address depend on current execution point of the CPU.
