13.13.6. Toggling automatic updates of the Memory view

By default, the Memory view updates automatically. To toggle the automatic update of the Memory view:

  1. Right-click in the Memory view to display the context menu.

  2. Select Automatic Update from the context menu.

Automatic updating refreshes the Memory view as soon as execution stops at a point in your image, such as at a breakpoint.

Be aware that for shared memory regions in a multiprocessor development platform, changes to the memory region are updated only for the memory view of the target that makes the change. If you have other Code windows open, then to see the changes in each Code window you must manually update the memory view in the those Code windows.

Freezing the contents of the Memory view

To freeze the contents of the Memory view, disable automatic updating. You can manually update the view contents if required.

Freezing the contents of the Memory view enables you to compare the contents with those in a second Memory view.
