Using the Memory Window

You can use a Memory window to view large buffers, strings, and other data that do not display well in the Watch or Variables window. In the Visual Studio debugger, you can open up to four Memory windows.

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

To display a Memory window

  • From the Debug menu, choose Windows, then Memory, and click Memory 1, Memory 2, Memory 3, or Memory 4. You can open these memory windows in any order. (The debugger must be running or in break mode.)

The following topics describe the tasks you can perform with the Memory window:
