Hello   I have problems with the debugger in Atmel Studio 7.
No datatips are displayed in debug mode. Do I need to make special settings?

Any ideas?

Visual Studio (on which AS7 is based) does this too. In debug mode if you hover over a variable it just shows its value.

Thanks for your reply. The problem is still there. 
When I hover over a variable a small rectangle appears with an arrow. 
Click opens a window (-> Rename, Introduce Variable ....) 
But no DataTip appears

What I would expect is that while in "edit mode" that if you hover over a variable (such as "src" here) you see something like:

 

 

which shows you the type of the variable while in debugging I would expect to see:

 

 

So this time it now shows me the contents of the variable.

 

But this is assuming the variable has not been optimized away. That may be what's happening here so the debugger has "nothing to show". What happens if you make the variable in question global or volatile or both ?
