Description Egor Ushakov 2012-07-02 13:35:05 UTC
In MSVS this is a very useful feature.
It allows to pin a watch to the source editor.

See small description here (tip 3)

In general when you pin a watch to the source editor it stays there (pair name|value) and scrolls together with sources. It allows to quickly observe required variable values while debugging.

Unfortunately, it will not make it into 7.4.
Comment 3 DimaZh 2015-05-20 15:47:57 UTC
this feature we would like to see implemented in the upcoming release. Be based on our experience and feedback from users, we think it will be useful and desired feature both from NetBeans and Studio prospective. Is there any chance that it can get into 8.1?
Comment 4 Martin Balin 2016-01-27 07:48:47 UTC
NetBeans should provide the ability to export and import the set of pinnable watches so these could be used by different developers for same project.
Comment 5 Martin Entlicher 2016-04-18 23:19:25 UTC
Pin watches are there, the debugger_pin_watch branch is merged into trunk:
Comment 6 Quality Engineering 2016-04-20 01:49:05 UTC
Integrated into 'main-silver', will be available in build *201604200001* on (upload may still be in progress)
