Debugging CC to understand the source code

Postby cincinatee » Mon Nov 14, 2016 8:26 am

I have compiled and was able to launch it in debug mode, thanks to this post >>> viewtopic.php?t=992
In Visual Studio 2013, I have built INSTALL project, set CloudCompare as StartUp Project and debug it. I can use the generated cloudcompare GUI instance as normal.

But how do i visualise control flow through different methods and its local variables?
It might be a silly question but I'm new to VS.

Thanks!

You have to use breakpoints and 'step by step' execution mode:
