Title: Slow watches, often does not respond
Post by: phufhi on September 12, 2012, 09:05:51 pm
Hello,

Code::Blocks acts normally until I press the watches button.
It slows down everything, and often does not respond until it is finished loading (sometimes this takes a few minutes).
As far as I know, this problem has only occurred with this particular program, even though I've made more memory heavy programs.
It is also worthy noting the program has absolutely no problem compiling or running (it easily runs over 100 fps).
I use Code::Blocks version 10.05 and the MinGW compiler that came with it.

Can this be fixed?

Thanks in advance!

Not easily, but we are working on it.

To minimize the problem:
Use fewer watches, only the watches you currently need.
Don't dereference larger objects.
Disable the locals and function arguments.

Try a nightly build, for easier management of watches.
