Help on xpeditor.

Post by Deepa » Mon Mar 17, 2014 2:56 pm

Hi,

I'm using XPED to test a program but I'm unable to view the values of the variables in the watch window. It just displays series of '.'s against the variable. Can someone please suggest how to fix this?

Periods are often used (not just in Xpediter) to represent non-printable characters. If you want to look at a group variable, and it has COMP or COMP-3 elementary variables under it, you will see the periods. You can look at the hex values, or watch the elementary variables.

I'm not sure if I got you Robert but I'm talking about to see the value of variables!

Just realized what you mean. so there is no way to see them (comp, comp-3) as 'readable' like PIC 9(3)?

Look in your Xpediter manual for the KEEPE (KE) command -- or PEEKE (PE) depending on which you are using -- for information about displaying the values of elementary variables in a group.
