When using Watch List(Debugger->Watches->Add watch) in IDA Pro, I want to add a memory scope(data size(db) , data length(18)) into Watch List.

However, IDA always only add a dword byte(data size(dd) , data length(1)) into Watch List by default, so how can I get Watch List to work as I want?


Had the same problem, couldn't find the answer anywhere so i found a workaround. I jumped to the address I wanted to watch and used Edit -> Array. Just choose the size of the array you want to watch and then when you add the address to the watch list it adds all the array. Hope it helps.

  • And what if variable is on stack? For me Array is grey when variable is on stack. – Vitalii Dec 3 '18 at 9:43
