Hi

In the memory pane in visual studio , the address is in hex (eg:0x1F9DBDC0) .So if i enter in my pointer name, it resolves it to a hex equaivalent in address space . Is there an easy way to advance to , let's say x bytes.

I can't seem to get mypointer+x to work if that's what i put in the address text box. Here, my pointer is the name of my pointer and x is the number of bytes i want to advance.

also note that mypointer is a pointer of char, so 1 byte.

thanks

works perfectly for me. See the attached jpegMemory Window
If you want to verify the values at the address just use pointers to store values in your program.

Use a debugger and step through the code to obtain the pointer value.
cross check these pointers and the corresponding stored values in the memory window.
