Action:

Restores from a local .watch file a list of items to display in the Watch Window, as described in Saving and restoring Watch Window contents.

Syntax:

loadWatch [watchfile]

where the command's optional argument is the name of the .watch file to be loaded. If you omit watchfile, a Windows file selection dialog box lets you select a saved .watch file when the command executes.

Otherwise, if you specify a watchfile argument (the .watch extension may be omitted), the named file is used.

To locate the watch file you identify, the Client looks in the folder that contains the JanusDebugger.exe file, by default. If the watch file cannot be found, an error is issued.

You may also specify the watch file name in these ways:

set &a = "foo" 
loadWatch &a 
  • As part of an absolute file system path, which must be enclosed in quotation marks.
loadWatch "c:\temp\foo.watch" 

The saveWatch command saves the Watch Window contents to a watch file.

Client menu: Data Display > Load Watch
Introduced: Build 49
