Can't find the Watch window in the debugger.

I'm trying to debug a script and want to see the values of objects and their properties. I highlight the object and add a watch but there is no window showing the added watch. I'm new to TestComplete; the previous day I was using the watch, it was displayed below the editor. I must have somehow hidden it but can't find how to display it again. Does anyone know how to display it again?

TIA Alan

Hi @Claddaghduff 

 

Hope you are well.

 

I think what is happening is that the "object spy" is missing from your toolbar selection 

 

This is highly customizable however if your tool bars are at the top simply rightclick and ensure "tools" are selected. 

 

Alternatively if you click on view>toolsbars>restart default tool bar this will use the default tool bar

 

Afterwords your object spy tool will be visible on top of your workspace

Let me know if this helps

Thanks Vinnie. I was trying to find the Watch List for variables/object in the javascripts editor whilst debugging javascript. I found a way to do it by opening the Expression window and dragging it in the javascript editor. It now appears in there any time I open the editor.

@Claddaghduff ah I see The spy is useful just not in this case. 

 So the watchlist, There are a few ways to get the watch list up 

Below should help should it disappear again from your view
