this seems like a pretty fumb question but for some reason i having trouble tracing the pointers and what the pointers are reading in Visual Studio C++ using the watch window..
im using the watch window to trace pointers in a program.. the program is a linked list set up using templates..
i may be just typing it wrong in the watch window but can anyone help me out?
Dereferencing pointers in the watch window is like code just *ptr.
when i try to to that i seem to only get the address..
you see the pointers are from a template and are pointing at nodes in a linked list.
i wanna see the values they are actually pointed at in the watch window.
You can look at specific memory locations using memory view. On the menu select view then debug windows and finally memory. Then put the address you want to view in the address edit box.
