13.17.2. Toggling automatic updates of the Watch view

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

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

  2. Select Automatic Update from the context menu.

    A tick is displayed for the option when it is enabled.

Automatic updating refreshes the Watch view when program execution stops at a point in your image, such as at a breakpoint.

Freezing the contents of the Watch view

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

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