How to make Qt's debugger show memory address of locals and Expressions

  • This is such a fundamental part of debuggin. But I cannot for the life of me figure out how to make Qt's debugger show the the address of the Locals and Expressions!.

    I see the name of the variable, the value and type. But where is the dang address!?

    When I right click it gives me options to see variables as a raw pointer. But When I use it, nothing happens.

  • What OS do you use?
    I just checked QtCreator debugger on Linux and it shows the pointers (@0x87654321)
    If I change view to "Raw pointer" then it adds a parent to the variable with the same name and address (0x87654321)

  • I am using Mac.

    Here's a screen shot of the debugger. I'm wondering if it only shows the address on heap allocated objects. The ones that are missing are locally scoped.
