Toad for SQL Server 7.1 - Installation Guide

Local Watches

Use the Local Watches window to automatically display watches for all local variables and parameters within the current procedure context.  

Note: You cannot add or remove watches from this window.

To view local watches

» Select Debug | Windows | Local Watches from the menu.


  • You can set an option so function calls are not evaluated when hovering the cursor over watches in Debugger Options (Tools | Options | Editor | Debugger).

  • When the current context changes, the Local Watches window evaluates the updated contents.

  • Watches display in a tooltip in the Editor window when you place the cursor over an expression. In some cases, you may need to highlight the expression to evaluate more complicated expressions such as ”r;@x+10” or ”r;substring(@sVal, 1, 10)”.
