Just put a breakpoint on the line that contains the closing } for the method (put the cursor on that line and hit F9 to set the breakpoint).  Then run your program (F5).

Once the program breaks on the breakpoint set above. Right click on your 'result' variable, and select 'Quick Watch' to view the value.  (You can also hoover over the 'result' variable to view its content).

I hope this helps.

Hi teera;

Place a breakpoint on this line of code. Left click on the line so that the cursor is on the line and press F9

result = client.DownloadString(url);

Run the program and when execution gets to this line it will stop.
Place the cursor on the variable name result and right click and select from the context menu "Add Watch"
Then press F10
Then observe the value in the "Watch" window, you will also be able to see it in the "Locals" window.
You can then press F5 to continue executing the program.

another option if you don't  want to put a break in the program is to output the result to a message box, just like you are doing with the exception:
private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            string url = "http://www.devtopics.com";
            string result = null;

            try
            {
                WebClient client = new WebClient();
                result = client.DownloadString(url);
                MessageBox.Show(result);
            }
            catch (Exception ex)
            {
                // handle error
                MessageBox.Show(ex.Message);
            }

        }
    }
