Console Monitoring

Recommended Posts

Would it be possible to create a console program to monitor variable values within a windows program while it is running. I do see a use for it in developing my game. Links tips tutorials would be appreciated Maybe my answer would be to create a child window to do this?

Yes, it would be possible, but it wouldn't be that helpful (any Windows program can create a console by calling AllocConsole). Look into multi-monitor debugging and remote debugging instead.

Start out with AllocConsole.

I once made a notepad look-a-like console that got input from a pipe. So any program that I wanted to debug could send data through a pipe to my console. Only problem was that my console was so buggy
