Is it possible to set a watch or quick watch on a variable in Visual Studio 2012 and have execution break when the value changes? If so, can someone point to a tutorial or give a quick explanation on how to do this?

Thanks!

Hi BlakeMcKenna;

You can use a breakpoint. Look at this web page, "Breakpoints: Use Hit Counts, Call Stack Functions, and Conditions to Break When and Where You Want in the Visual Studio Debugger", in the section called, "Specify a breakpoint condition using a code expression".

Set a breakpoint. Then right click on that breakpoint you wish to configure then you will see a context menu as shown below and also in the web page I pointed too. You will find Hit Count as well as Condition and others. Debug Menu
