The Watch List panel displays all current watch expressions. A watch expression is a script variable, property or object, keyword test variable or an expression whose current value you wish to track during a debugging session. The current value of the object is considered as a set of current values of the object’s non-indexed properties.

Here is a sample view of the panel:

Displaying the Panel

To display the Watch List panel, do one of the following:

  • Select View | Debug | Watch List from the main menu.
