inspect std::vector, on debug RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, I am using Visual Studio Express 2012, on Windows 7.

    Usually it is quite ok, and debugging is ok too. However , sometimes, when I am debugging, and using structures of std::vector type, I can not inspect the vector, directly, via a Variable Watch, or, by directly hovering over it, with the mouse pointer.


    For example, I have a vector:


    std::vector<std::pair<int, int>> homePoints;

    which I CAN inspect, by hovering over it:

    But I also have a vector:

    struct match{
    		std::wstring szwHomeTeamName;
    		std::wstring szwAwayTeamName;
    		int iHomeTeamScore;
    		int iAwayTeamScore;
    		std::wstring szwTimeAndDate;
    	std::vector<match> matches;

    which, for some reason, I can't inspect in the same way, see this:


    it seems that it sometimes works, for some vectors, and not for others? Why?

  • Hello,

    I think that you need to expand the 'matches' and its next nodes when you hover on it.
