µVISION DEBUGGER: Modifying Watch Window Values


Information in this article applies to:

  • µVision4 -- All versions

QUESTION

I have the following function:

void receive_data (unsigned char length) {
  unsigned char format;

  ...
}

When I am in the function, the watch window displays the format variable without any problems. But when I try to change the value for that variable in the watch window, the debugger immediately changes the value back to it's original value.

How can I change this variable's value in the watch window?

ANSWER

The variable that you view in the watch window is a local variable that is defined locally in a function. To allow this value to be modified in the watch window, you must enter it as a fully qualified symbol using:

\ModuleName\FunctionName\SymbolName

This is explained in more detail under Fully Qualified Symbols in the µVision User's Guide.
