toggles the display value between decimal and hexadecimal.
winIDEA will display high level variable values formatted according to their type. If you wish to override default formatting or to enforce a type to a typeless expression, you can use type modifiers.
see Watch Expression Type Modifiers for more detailed explanation.
To configure a new watch expression you can:
•select an empty line in the watch window, and start entering the watch expressions
•select Add Watch… command that opens 'Browsing variables' dialog and select a symbol you want to watch
•select the expression you wish to watch in the editor and drag it to the watch window
Deletes all watches.
enable graphical display, see Display mode for more detailed explanation.
Set Write Breakpoint
Variables configured in the Watch window can be used to directly set a hardware Write access breakpoint.
When a single variable whose address is linear in memory space (i.e. not in a register, or using a register offset), the context menu Set Write Breakpoint command configures the hardware access breakpoint logic (if available on the current platform).
Deletes the selected watch.
Create Initialization Script...
Watch window can create an initialization script. All selected watches which can be modified are exported to a Python file along with their current values.
•Select the watch expressions
•Right click and select Create initialization script command
•Specify the file name and confirm
The script is using standard isystem.connect Python syntax and can be executed as such.
Note: If regular watch pane is used, monitor access will be used to perform the modification. If real-time watch pane is used, real-time access will be used.
This setting can be manually overridden by editing the Python file.
Creating initialization script with char variables
When generating an initialization script from the watch window variable values will be used as displayed in the watch window. This may be problematic for the char variables, as most commonly they are displayed in ASCII (integer) format. This format will not work in the initialization script. In order to change the display format of the char variables go to Debug / Debug options / Symbols / Character display and choose Integer.
