    Dev-C++ Watch Window Format

    I am using Dev-C++ under Windows 8 and wanted to change the watch window format to hexadecimal. I could not figure out how to do this. Does any body know whether this is possible? Is Code::Blocks any better at this feature.

    code::blocks is a better IDE.
    It's actively developed, has a forum and lots of online help.
    Code::Blocks - Index
    Main Page - CodeBlocks

    dev-c++ was abandoned long ago (last tested on Win2K IIRC). How many MS operating systems have come and gone between then and your win8 ?

    The only way your situation could be worse is if you were still using TurboC.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.

    Actually, there is current, active development, under the name Orwell Dev-C++. I used Dev-C++ back in the day, and found it to be lacking in features. Code::Blocks is far superior, as are Eclipse and NetBeans. For developing on windows, though, you should really be using Visual Studio.
    Code:
    namespace life
    {
        const bool change = true;
    }

    Thank you Eklvis and Salem. What is the cost of Visual Studio?

    Visual studio express versions are free (possibly in exchange for an email address).

    Visual Studio 2013 Professional is right around $500USD. You get a ton of stuff that express doesn't come with, and it's very helpful if you can justify the cost.
    Code:
    namespace life
    {
        const bool change = true;
    }
