Memory Window

Visual Studio .NET 2003

To open a Memory window, you must be debugging. From the Debug menu, choose Windows, click Memory, and then choose Memory 1, Memory 2, Memory 3, or Memory 4 from the cascading menu. You can open these Memory windows in any order.

Note   This feature is not available for languages, such as script and SQL, that do not support the concept of memory.

You can use a Memory window to view large buffers, strings, and other data that do not display well in the Watch or Locals windows.

A toolbar at the top of the Memory window has three controls:

To scroll the screen to a specified memory address, type the address in this box and press ENTER. The address can be a numeric address, a function name, or an expression.
Reevaluate Automatically
Determines whether the value displayed is live (recalculated automatically as the program runs) or persistent.
Sets the number of columns in the memory display.

The toolbar can be hidden or displayed using the shortcut menu. For more information, see Toggling the Memory Window Toolbar.
