6.0 IDE debugger change default base from decimal to hex

Started by Corey, Rick February 13, 2004
Hi All

Does anyone know how to change the default base for numeric display in the
6.0 CW IDE debugger windows from decimal to hex?

Edit | Preferences | Debugger | Display Settings | "Show values as
decimal instead of hex"
I've tried checking and un-checking this, but to no effect.
Values always show in decimal (though addresses are always in hex - good
choice).

Does anyone know the secret?

Induhvidually right-clicking each variable and structure field does allow
converting them to hex one at a time, but my fingers are getting tired.

Rick,

When Debugging,

There should be a Data menu item.

select your variable, the open the Data menu and
Select
View as Hexadecimal
