Hexadecimal view

For numerical variables of integer types, you can examine hexadecimal representation instead or alongside the original formatting.

Hex view for integer types is available for both GDB and LLDB debuggers on all platforms, including the remote debug case and WSL.

Enable hexadecimal view

  1. Go to Settings / Preferences | Build, Execution, Deployment | Debugger | Data Views | C/C++.

  2. Set the Show hex values for numbers checkbox. Choose to have hexadecimal values displayed instead or alongside the original values:
