RE: 6.0 IDE debugger change default base from deci mal to hex

Started by Corey, Rick February 13, 2004
Hi Ron, how's it going?

That seems not to affect the fields inside a structure, if you just click
the structure and set "view as hex". At least that is true for the "ArchIO"
style variables. Also for structs specified by a pointer.

Also, that seems not to be "sticky" - I just set the fields in several
structs to "view as hex", then stopped the debug session, downloaded again
and started debugging again, and they are back to decimal.

Also, one still has to set each variable separately - I would really like to
change the *default* base for numeric display in all debugger windows
from decimal to hex - or at least the local variables pane and the
Expressions pane.

So far I haven't noticed any difference between the Menu item "Data | View
as Hex" and just right-clicking each field and selecting "view as hex".

Thanks, though.

Rick Corey

When Debugging,

There should be a Data menu item.

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