What do you mean "extends" the watch window? If you mean adds custom types, you can do that already by editing autoexp.dat in the SharedIDE/bin folder inside MSVC's install dir.

Yes, add custom types, that is what I want to do.
But the type I want do be able to browse is quite advanced.
It's a hierarchal property container implemented using a hiearchy of
std::map

Nodes in the std::map can either be named variants or other std::map ( to make it hierarchal )

Do you think this can be done by editing autoexp.dat?


thanks

So instead of having to browse the std::maps which is a pain
I want a more simple view. Something like this


<container="root", name_hash=32545346, size=3>
<variant="size", int, 10>
<variant="width", int, 45>
<container="monkey", name_hash=54456754, size=1>
<variant="type", string, gorilla>
</monkey>
</root>


Do you think this is possible?

Expression Evaluator Add-In for visual studio seems to be more what I need.
Do you know if it exists for visual studio 2003?
