When I debug and add items to the Watchpoints Window no values show up under Value in the window.
The condition functionality works though. If I add a condition and that condition is met, execution will stop. But I still can't see anything under Value.
If I add a Watch Window I see the values just as you would expect.
It seems this behaviour started in VC 6.
I tried adding watchpoints to a COBOL program and their values display okay for me in the watchpoint window so I think you will need to give an example of the data items you are adding the watchpoints for.
I created a new INT/GNT project and added a cbl file to the project (Program1). I then added a few lines (in upper-case) to the program so it looked like this:
01 MY-VAR PIC X(10).
MOVE SPACES TO MY-VAR.
MOVE "TEST VALUE" TO MY-VAR.
end program Program1.
I started the program by pressing F10 and added MY-VAR to Watchpoints. After the line MOVE "TEST VALUE" TO MY-VAR the text "TEST VALUE" showed up in Watchpoints just as you would expect.
I then changed configuration from x86 to x64 and did the same as above - and the text didn't show up any more.
Thanks Jens, I hadn't tried an x64 configuration but can see the problem on my test program when I did that.
Can you raise a bug report please ?
