AUTOEXP.DAT

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\Common\MSDev98\Bin\AUTOEXP.DAT

;
; While debugging, Data Tips and items in the Watch and Variable
; windows are automatically expanded to show their most important
; elements. The expansion follows the format given by the rules
; in this file. You can add rules for your types or change the
; predefined rules.
Whether typecasting, use of indirection operator (*) or address-of operator
(&) is supported in AutoExp.dat file?
We can use it in watch window but we have to change the variable name.
If we can make it in AutoExp.dat file then we just have to move the mouse
pointer over the variable and it will show up its value.

For example we have an expression similar to this:
(wchar_t*)(*((long*)((variable).m_pbaseString)+1)) ,su

I believe you should direct the question to microsoft.public.vc.debugger
Kind regards
