Maybe this is a stupid question.  But I have to ask it.

When I step thru the code in the debugger, I am used to seeing the 'local' variables in the class / function / procedure that is currently being executed.

Is there any way to see if an object that was created by an earlier method is still existing or has been released. Obviously it is not local to the procedure being executed so it does not pop up in my local window.

I might not be fully grasping the question, but you can view calls which are currently higher up in the stack. If you display the "Call Stack" window (Debug->Windows->Call Stack), you can see the series of function calls which have been called (and which are still in [some kind of] scope) since the program started. You can double-click on any line which is not greyed out and see the state of the various variables as they existed when that function was in current scope (ref variables may show differently if a lower caller has modified the values).
