Following a Pointer Through Memory

In native code applications, you can use register names as live expressions. For example, you can use the stack pointer to follow the stack.

To follow a pointer through memory

  1. In the Memory window Address box, type a pointer expression. The pointer variable must be within the current scope. Depending on the language, you may need to dereference it.
  2. Press ENTER.

    Now, when you use an execution command, such as Step, the memory address displayed will automatically change as the pointer changes.
